And then we finally saw it!
We were so excited to down to the river, but unfortunately, there was a small creek between us and the actual trail with no bridge in between. We went around trying to look for a bridge, but then my human got stuck in the mud!! I didn't try to help her because I wanted her to learn some survival skills, but I also didn't run away even when she let go of my leash. She was stuck knee-deep in the mud, and she was finally able to pull her legs out by leaving her shoes in the mud holes. She had to reach into the holes to dig her shoes back out, but at that point her socks, jacket, phone, pants, and shoes were all very muddy, and she was NOT happy. But who needs shoes anyway? Woo didn't see me sinking in the mud!!
After my human finally got her shoes back on, we went splashing across the creek so we could walk the trail and not go home without having seen anything. The scenery was enough to put my human back in her good mood. Check out these pics! To the left of us was the Potomac River, and to the right was the creek we crossed.
