Awhile back we went and hiked the Mudgy & Millie Moose Trail. I would have told you about it sooner but Papa is lazy. Getting him to edit my work can sure be exhausting! I’m just going to jump right in and tell you about the time we stopped in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
First order of business was parking and then making our way around all the construction to actually get to the Mudgy & Millie Moose Trail. We found Mudgy along the way and he gave us directions down to the water.
Millie was nowhere to be found though. Upon inspection of the map we discovered she was over in another part of the park that we were not headed to.
Mudgy and Millie have to stay in different areas of the park because you humans are getting lost all the time and they have to give you directions. It must be difficult for Mudgy and Millie to never get to be near each other.
As you can see I was already getting pretty hot and we hadn’t even gone very far. So we headed to look for some shade.
Along the trail we found this shaded grassy area perfect for a little scent exchange.
Now that I was done cooling off and spilling the coffee, it was time for some exploring! There was water and floating cars through this hole I found.
The Mudgy & Millie Moose Trail has a few parts to it. Some are in the city on roads but as for me and my humans we like going into nature.
The trail winds along the bank of Lake Coeur d’Alene and is actually pretty high up in most places. The views are beautiful and not far along the trail I overheated again per usual and needed to stop for water.
Just some people.. So then Mama and Papa decided this rock was the perfect photo op and made me sit on this rock and told me to smile. People walking by are always laughing when they see me smiling for a picture they don’t seem to get that I’m just hot and trying to cool off… It does make for a good picture though if I do say so myself.
Finally Papa decided keeping me cool was a lot of work and lured me down to the water. Then he picked me up and dropped me in. Normally I would have gone crazy when dropped in water but just weeks earlier I had learned the joys of water in Spokane, as you can see here. Now I even run into the ocean and attack the waves, but that is another post.
