Welcome Delia! I've got a 10 Year old lab and he's an awesome trail dog! He even waits until I catch up to him. emoticon You can see some pictures of him on my Sparkpage. He's gone on vacations to the White Mts. with us 3 times and Vermont on another hiking vacation. If you ask me I'd say labs are born to hike!
I remember taking my dog hiking when he was a pup but always make sure you are near water or carry enough for both of you. It's funny, thinking back now, I really think I got him so I would have more adventures.
Happy New Year!

Terrie

We have mountains, but our mountains here are more like big hills full of rocks.

But go a bit north to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon and the mountains will be more mountainous. Or south a bit, and the Alleghenies will be more rugged....

Good on you! That's around twice a week.

Now, do you mean mountain climbing, or a good, vigorous walk?

I'd like to go mountain climbing, but my daughter doesn't want me going up the mountain alone, and of course she's right. I'm an old lady, 72, and I could lose my balance and fall badly.

Still, it would be good to be able to go up our local mountains frequently.
