Cowabunga!

Well, I wasn't going to post anything today, because this is a trail I've run many times, but Neko and I came across EIGHT groups of cows in a 6 mile run!!


If you look closely, you can see the first group on the side of the trail. The second is hidden behind the hill.


Group Number 3 at the top of the ridge.








Group Number 4... by this time, I was starting to lose "cow"nt...









Group Number 5- we were starting to "cow"er in fear...








Group Number 6- at least these cows weren't sCOWling at us.







Group Number 7-- you should have seen my "cow"ntenance!








Group Number 8- I think this is really too many to "cow"ntemplate...







I have a piece of advice for you though, if you're ever on the trail and en"cow"nter some of my bovine friends.....

"You just COWl out my name, and you know, wherever I am, I'll come running...." (my deepest apologies to James Taylor)

Whoo. That's only one beer into the 4th. Time to clean up the yard for some 'cuing!

Happy 4th of July, everyone!

I just had to "cow"ment on this!

Luciano, I did like the pictures-- I think working dogs are amazing.

Tom--yeah, I asked for that...

do you bring your camera with you on runs?

Victoria said...

Of course I bring my camera-- how else would I get so many pictures of my runs?

Kevin said...

Ooops. I figured you brought your own camera (unless you travel with an entourage). Guess what I meant was, where do you keep your camera. is it a camera phone. is it tiny. I've missed some opportunities to take some good pics during runs because I dont have a camera.
(And again, sorry for the stupidest question I have ever asked.)

Hee hee... imagine running with an entourage. Yeah, no paparazzi for me. Although I'd probably let any paparazzi take a picture of me who can lug their camera equipment up three steep miles of trail. No, I have a Pentax Optio A10 (8.0 megapixels), and I carry it in either my Ultimate Direction 2-bottle "snack compartment" or I have a small carrying case that attaches to my one-bottle belt. I don't really like running with a belt all the time, but I hate having things in my hands even more.

And don't worry about the question... ;-)
