Long winded today........

This past Wednesday, Andrew dropped me off 5 miles from a waterfall that we were going to photograph....... Needed to get a run in.

He was back about five minutes after dropping me off. Told me that there were wild dogs running on the road. I hopped in the truck and he dropped me off further up the road.

A short while later, I noticed a dog in the distance........ it was lunging at passing cars and chasing them down the road.

I texted Andrew, asking him to come back for me. I soon realize that the dog was headed toward me......... oh shit!

There was a fenced off area to my right with a 'no trespassing' sign. Next thing I know I'm on the other side and staring at this dog who is staring right back at me.

Several minutes later he/she ran into the forest.

After Andrew arrived and rescued me for the second time, I gave up the run, and we went to the falls together.

At the trailhead, there were more dogs (these ones were friendly). Got one to sit still long enough to snap a pic.

Isn't he cute?

Water levels were way down. So, when we came to a part in the trail that we had to use a rope to climb straight down, we called it quits.

Decided on some car exploring............ quickly found ourselves entering a state park.

We saw a couple deer on the way........ Largest wild animals seen on the trip thus far.

We drove to a restaurant in the park, it had a great patio.

The sun was too low in the sky so we couldn't get a decent picture. Wish I could have shown it to you....... Was breathtaking.

Thursday we had appointments to get our hair cut. We were both long overdue!!!!!

I scheduled the appointment for Thursday because the forecast called for rain. Was right on the mark.

After a bit of research, I chose Studio 21 in Birmingham, AL (an hour away from our camp).

Let me tell ya; trusting a stylist, other than my own, is a scary thing.

Fortunately, we were both very satisfied with our cuts. Don't you just love the feel of your hair after getting a cut?

Found a specialty wine store next to the salon. Bought 3 different bottles.........

Cracked this one last night.

That's all for now.

Gotta run.

Great post! Glad you were ok with that dog! I hate it when I'm bothered by dogs. Glad you found a good stylist. Trusting a new one can be almost as scary as encountering a stray dog! ;)

Oh goodness what a scary experience. Glad you are ok though.

This is crazy!! I've never really heard of wild dogs just running around before. Bizarre!

With my luck I'd have my had eaten off because I'd try to get all close and pet them!
