Meeting cows on the Bolinas Ridge Trail

We went to the Bolinas Ridge Trail. It's right outside Point Reyes, and one of the few dog-friendly trails up there.

Right on the trail head there was a lot of cows. Hobie has not really been close to cows before, and he wasn't quite sure what to think of them.

Here we're trying to turn around to get Hobie closer to the cows, but Hobie will have none of that nonsense.

Once we got past the cows it was a nice hike. The ground was still a little wet, but we walked for about 90 minutes along the trail before we stopped for food.

There was a great view from the top, and it seems that even Hobie enjoyed it. We didn't even have to bribe him with treats to get him to sit still for the picture.

We let Hobie off leash for a little bit, and he was trotting along very happily.

Of course, on our way back, we had to walk by the cows again. Wherever there are cows, there are cow pies. And wherever Hobie is, it's sometimes hard to walk in a straight line. I was trying to navigate through the maze of puddles, pies and cows, but Hobie still managed to get two of his paws planted solidly on top of a fresh pie.

Fortunately, it didn't really stick, and we cleaned him up with paper towels before we drove home to give him a bath.
