Mr. C. Cow and I were taking a walk the other day as a fun and safe way to relax. Little did we know that nature had other plans for us.
DUN DUN DUN!!!
Seriously we were in a wrong place at the wrong time situation. It was a pretty windy day and we were in the middle of the woods when…BAM….a HUGE half of a dead tree fell from way up high and landed on the trail in front of us. I would have gotten a good picture of this tree on the path but we ran away before other things started falling from the sky. One minute it’s a half a tree and the next it could be the whole tree. I felt like we were under some sort of nature attack.
When that tree fell many feet down to the ground it freaked out both Mr. C. and myself. I ran in one direction while Mr. C. galloped in another. He hid in a bush and I ran like the sky was falling. After our near death by tree experience we decided to not go on a hike.
What does one do when they are almost squished flat by nature? Play “Frog Hide And Seek” of course!
I am especially good at playing hide and seek with frogs. Being pretty short I’m closer to the ground and can find them under leaves. Mr. C. Cow has a bit of an issue since he is bigger and has four hoofs. Instead of running around looking he has to tread lightly. Apologizing to a frog because you accidentally gave them a face full of hoof kinda ruins the game.
What have we learned today? We learned to not give a face full of hoof to a frog. They don’t like that. We also learned that you shouldn’t attempt to take a hike on a really windy day. Dead trees might fall from the sky and try to haunt you flat.
We are avid nature peeps and recommend you check out the NASPD to find a state park in your area!
Also…we were, honestly, on a hike and a tree almost hit us! How rude!
