Cocoa is ready to go on a walk and not wanting to sit with me on this very slanted rock. We were at Black Mountain this past weekend and hiked a trail that is always fun in the winter because it is fairly kept up and safe. She’s talking to me in this photo and definitely saying, “Let me down and let’s GO!”

Here’s a photo of Black Mountain Lake. It’s located below the state park that is closed during the winter and is a beautiful location for walks and picnics.
