Our first day, we drove from Norfolk, VA, to Lexington, KY. It was rainy and foggy in the mountains. West Virginia was icky. The mountains made our ears hurt. Mom was grumpy because there weren't any NPR stations and spotty cell phone reception. Made for a boring drive.
The next day, we got to visit the biggest dog park we have ever been to. If you're ever traveling through Lexington, you have to go to Coldstream Dog Park. The little dog section is bigger than all of the dog parks in Norfolk put together. The big dog section was even larger.
This is the little dog section. You can barely make out the fence at the far end.
You can't even see the fence on this side.
This is the big dog section.
Coldstream Dog Park is 12 acres.
It's just off Interstate 64 and about 2 miles from the very dog friendly La Quinta.
We highly recommend it.
After a good run and watching a hawk try to eat a bird, we got on the road.
We got to Illinois in good time so we hit another dog park!
This one is in O'Fallon and wasn't as big, but had really neat agility equipment.
A nice paved path to a covered picnic area. No food though.
Hurdles and wobbly weave poles!
Platforms for diva posing, right?
After another good run, we checked into our hotel and napped until we got to meet Payton!
