Hiking with Dogs at DeSoto Falls and Vogel State Park & Fido's #FreebieFriday

Rocco wades into the creek at DeSoto Falls
Last weekend we headed up to North Georgia for a day of hiking fun with our pals Johann, Gracie, Rach and their mum.  Our first stop was DeSoto Falls, a lovely path along a creek to the falls... and then the rain came! 


We scurried down the path and found shelter where we waited out the storm. The dogs didn't seem to mind. Only Rocco looks drenched but we were all pretty wet.


Back up to the falls when the sun came out...
And then we headed over to nearby Vogel State Park for a walk to another falls.


By this time, Rocco had dried out!

The pretty view at Vogel State Park

  4. Rocco is certainly a fabulous dog with his beautiful fur! Even when it's wet! Is he a tough one to brush?

  7. Your really lucky having a place like that to walk your cute dog, can you let them off leash near that lake?

  8. They are supposed to be kept on a leash at all the parks here. It's really a good idea for the safety of everyone as we'd rather not have other dogs running up to us. Thanks for stopping by!
