Every year Mr. C. Cow and I stop the camper at the Twin Lakes State Park in Virginia and take a few days to help them set up their “Haunting On The Lake”. It’s a really scary haunted trail you can hike for two days during the month of October.
Last year when we stopped to help get the trail ready Mr. C. Cow tried spray painting his tongue glow in the dark instead of the scary object he was suppose to paint. I QUICKLY stopped him and informed him that paint goes on a scary object. Not on a tongue. He was really disappointed that he could not make his tongue glow. I’ve been trying to find him some sort of non-toxic tongue paint this year but it has proved to be difficult. He’s just going to have to wear glow in the dark hairspray or cow hide spray or whatever.
This year we haven’t had any mishaps with spray paint (We didn’t let him have any.) but he did try to lick all of the hay bales. It’s hard to tell a cow they can’t lick hay but have to use it as decoration. Using hay as decorating material???!!!??? It does not compute in a cows brain.
What we did find is that Mr. C. Cow does a wonderful job of carrying equipment around. He, also, is really handy with an electric drill. If there was things to drill he was there like some sort of Halloween decorating super hero.
We can’t wait to see how everyone loves this years haunted trail. Mr. C. Cow is especially excited as he is planning on dressing as a human being. I’m not exactly sure how he’s going to pull this off but I’m curious to see how he does. Hopefully Mr. C. Cow doesn’t lick any hay bales while people are watching.
This is a REAL thing that is put on every year at Twin Lakes State Park in Virginia. (Click on the park name for their webpage and more info about the park.) Mr. C. Cow and I HIGHLY recommend that you visit if you are in the area. We help out/go every year and it’s always a lot of scary fun!
It runs from October 21st-22nd 2016.
The trail is open from 6pm-10pm Friday And Saturday
There is also a fall festival to go with the haunted trail on Saturday October 22nd that runs from Noon-4pm. It’s a great thing to take smaller children to that don’t want to get scared by the haunted trail.
I would like to give a big thank you to those that work really hard each year to put this on. Thank you!
