Tishomingo State Park Hike with Akiro
Akiro got kicked out of the RV, because our shower needed work done. So I had to find something to occupy his and my time. I originally planned on relaxing on a blanket in a nice grass field under a tree. That worked for about an hour until ants started crawling all over the blanket. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like sitting in what started to become an ant colony. So I decided to drive to the state park near by.
Akiro and I hiked the 2 mile outcropping trail. I wasn’t planning on doing any hiking that day, so I had my flip flops on, not the greatest hiking shoes but I decided to go for it anyway. I did trip on many tree roots and am impressed I survived the trail without a stubbed toe. The trail starts by crossing a Swing Bridge that was built in 1939 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Akiro crossed it like a champ, he has no fears when it comes to hiking. The trail was fun, we climbed rocks, went over and under trees, walked on dirt and sand, walked along the river and had to find a way around a tree laying over a creek, we were supposed to cross, which I couldn’t do because of my sandals and Akiro couldn’t do because he’s a dog. It was nice they had the trail marked with red dots on the trees. At one point a horse fly attacked Akiro, he fought it off, so it went after me and bit my head. It still hurt 24 hours later.
Akiro was a good boy and posed for every picture.
