First hike at St Joseph Hill OSP and it was a thumbs up. We had 3 hounds today: Ares, Jane and John. They all did well and enjoyed the hike (we kept it short as greyhounds are not built for endurance).
The weather was perfect for a hike and the elevated trail offers some nice views of Los Gatos & Sierra Azul mountains.
There were several joggers, bikers and people out enjoying the sunny Labor Day weekend but it wasn't too busy.
During a water break, a hiker stopped to warn us of a snake off to the side of the trail ahead and we decided it was a good time to head back.
As we approached the park exit, two people entered with remote controlled cars. Based on experience, we knew that this was bad news with the hounds...
The winding sound of the car motor seems to bring back memories of the electric rabbit at the racetrack and sets them into a frenzy of wining, barking, pulling and general chaos, so we made a hasty exit before it escalated!
Once we were back at the car the hounds settled in quickly and it didn't take long for them to slip into a nap for the ride home.
