Thirsty Thursday: Last Hike of 2012

Rambler: Terry
Drink in Hand: 2010 Ancient Peaks Zinfandel

The last day of 2012 and the last hike of the year.  It was supposed to be a casual hike, but the Mas decided to make it interesting.  She was her typical rambunctious self...but this time it caught up to her.  She decided to go vertical (i.e., up the side of a cliff) and in doing so, she sliced (yes I said sliced) her paws.  Actually, she sliced a front one and a back one.  So, that pretty much ended the hike and poor little Massey is now out of commission.  After a visit to the vet, she's okay, but she won't be running until probably next week.  Tear.  So, our simple hike turned into a "Let's get Massey back to the house (and to the vet) so that she can rest."  But, Thirsty Thursdays aren't really about the adventures of Massey (check out Massey Mondays for those).  Before she decided to go vertical, she discovered this little stream where we were able to blur the water in the shadows.  It was a pretty peaceful place.  Sometimes I think the little pup has eye (or nose) for finding us spots to shoot.  So, even though the hike turned into a bit of a diaster, we were still able to get some decent shots.  Here's to some even better shots in 2013 and injury free hikes (at least for the Mas).
