A walk on a hot summer night

Phoenix and I went for a walk last night. It was a more sensible 82 degrees in the evening, not 100, like it has been for the last couple of weeks. One of my favorite places to walk in the summer is in the waterways in cornfields. Simply put, these are places for rainwater to run and collect, allowing the land to drain and preventing erosion. You can see the waterways are slightly lower than the level of the surrounding field.

The Farmer mows and bales most of the waterways. He had mowed these today. How convenient.

Ooh, wonder what's around the bend?

Another bend

Which way should we go, left or right?

Phoenix, I hope you remember how to get home!

Jamie didn't go walking with us last night. It's still about 20 degrees too hot for him.


  1. What a great place to walk. I bet Phoenix had a super time. Also looks like a good place for tracking. When I last needed Pie to show me the way home, she (and the rest of the dogs) failed pretty bad. In their defense they were probably hoping to lead me astray so the walk would be longer. Luckily my neat-o GPS watch had a feature that got us back on the correct trail. :)
