Enjoying the Journey on Nature Friday - Part One

After my trip to the eye doctor last week, Mama thought it would be nice to break up our journey home with a few nature stops.
 Today, I am going to show you two of the greener stops we made.

Our first stop was at Valley of the Rogue State Park, only a short nap from the eye doctors office!

I did some surveying of the park from the vantage point of this tall tree stump. What a beautiful park with bunches of places to walk and sniff emails left by pups who had visited from all across the country!

The trails are nestled up to the beautimous Rogue River!

...if you look to the distant left of the picnic table, you'll see a fenced area. That is actually a large dog run!
Unfortunately, it had a large dog in it but Mama said maybe next time we visit we could check it out.

After a nice walk around the park, we hopped back in the car and made our way back to California.

The next green place we stopped was a familiar one, Lagoon Creek Picnic Ground.  Mama goes here sometimes to find Serenity during trying times.

Lagoon Creek makes me smile because it is close to my ocean. I could even hear the waves crashing!

In fact, I was serene just listening to the waves and knowing I would see my ocean soon!

 Mama made a short video so you could hear the waves too!

You can also view the movie HERE on YouTube

 We hope you find periods of Serenity this weekend!

Make sure to join me two weeks from today when I show you where else we visited on the way home from the eye dogtur!

Rosy will be here next week for:

  5. I heard the waves, I love the lapping sound of waves.. that is the way our gulf sounds most of the time. so much beauty and you added to the beauty way up high on your tree. your turned a doc visit into a mini vacation..... I read the name Rogue State Park and wondered how a park can go rogue. then I saw it is on the rogue river and it made since

  6. It looks so funny to us being all green. We are now so used to everything being frozen and white. It is a beautiful area that you found.

  7. Arty I know you and Mama enjoyed the gorgeous walkie in the Park after the very positive Eye Dogtor appointment. The sky was gorgeous and the video very soothing Serenity was a $10.00 word.

  17. Ah, the sound of waves can bring all of us serenity. I am so glad that you and your mom turned that long drive into fun! I love seeing the green at this time of year (there is no green here!). Thanks so much for sharing!

  18. We can see (or hear) why you Mama likes to go to that place. I also heard that you an get serenity through pills. We don't like pills. XOX Xena and Lucy

  19. That state park looks like a great place for your walk with Mama. And oh, how Mom loved hearing the waves - she so misses the ocean.

  20. You take the most awesome trips, but wherever you go you are the cutest thing there.

  21. The sound of crashing waves is one of the most relaxing sounds in the world! What beautiful places to unwind after a visit to the dogtur. ♥
