Hiking the Ozarks

Before I journeyed back to Montana at Christmas time, I went on a hike in the Ozark Mountains.  I now live in Kansas, so I miss the majestic mountains.  So do Mom and Dad.  We drove ten hours (five out and five back) in one day---just to go for a five mile hike!  We are crazy, aren't we? 
My overall conclusion:  I like the Ozark Mountains.  They are very SPONGY.  I can run, and run, and run  and my muscles don't get that tired.  The leaves make it extra squishy too.  Even though many of these mountains are ROLLING and and not STEEP, I did manage to find several fun things to play on. 

Here's the "Queen of the Mountain" game that I play by myself.

I also like to find those pesky little squirrels.



Have any of you furiends ever been to the Ozark Mountains?  Any hiking suggestions? 

Hoping to hike again soon,

Kootenai

  2. Wow! I want to go to the Ozark Mountains! It sounds and looks awesome. I think your ten hour road trip was definitely worth it!

  3. No, we've never been to the Ozarks. Actually, we live in a very flat area, so we haven't been to any mountains. Looks fun.

  6. MOM and I don't think that sounds crazy at all. We would do it if we didn't have these wonderful mountians to play in. But I have not been to the ozarks.

  7. The Ozarks are beautiful, but I cannot imagine driving 10 hours round trip in a day. You are die-hards!

  8. That looks like so much fun! We don't have many hiking places in Texas but we have plenty of State Parks filled with walking trails.

  9. WE have never been to the Ozarks. So we are waiting to see more from your adventures there. Now My Vickie wants to google it up and see how far she would have to drive to get there.

  12. Nope,

    I haven't been to any Mountains - I do however also have experience with those pesky Squirrels, they come into MY garden, can you believe it?! They run along the fence to get me to chase them, then they run up the tree and then they throw things at me!!

    I noticed you're not on your lead, I'm very impressed, Mum won't let me off cos she thinks if I see a Squirrel or something else that moves fast I won't come back - Doh!! But I think she's got a good point! :)

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  16. I have been to the Ozarks once but not with the dogs and not for hiking. I went to visit a friend for a few days in Fayetteville, AK. I did have my first (and only) real caving experience there though.

  18. My human parents understand why you'd drive 5 hours there and 5 hours back to hike in the mountains. Long before they adopted me, they spent a few years in the Midwest, and they wouldn't think much of driving 5 hours to hike in the big sand dunes in Northern Michigan. Once they drove 12 hours to hike in the Smokies.
    Keep on wagging!
