Monday Mischief: Short fun at New River Gorge Visitor Center

Roxy was our house guest this weekend while my parents were out of town.  So I had to come up with something fun to do (even though she would rather not).  Teach has been doing great on his foot, but I still didn't want to over do it with him.  But the weather was so nice I knew I wanted to get out and at least take some pictures of them.

I had never taken Teach to the visitor center at New River Gorge National Park in Fayetteville.  We have hiked all over the Gorge, but never gone to the touristy overlook.  One reason is because its normally really crowded and there isn't really any hiking to be done.  But for a dog that I'm still restricting activities on that will be perfect.  

This is what it looks like from the main overlook.  This picture is from Wikipedia.
The main overlook was closed due to snow/ice so we went to the one right off the parking lot.  In the picture you can't really see the bridge, but you're looking down on it.  But you can see Teach!  Finally ... pictures of Teach back outside.  (we are on the mend)

Roxy loves going but hates her destinations and always just wants back in the vehicle.  After we walked to the overlook (above) she made a beeline back to the vehicle.  So ... to burst her bubble (because that's how I am) we walked over the visitor center (no dogs allowed inside but could walk around outside) and I found this cool wall to take pictures on.  It stepped up so it was easy on Teach to get up there and I just picked Roxy up ... because she was having no part in jumping up there.  Her little eyes were set on where the car was at.  

Teach wanted to do more ... he was whining that we were going back to the car.  And Roxy said what we did was way to much!!  HAHA!!  Complete opposites.  


  1. Fun times! Teach is so regal looking.

  2. LOL! Oh Roxy... ;)
    Glad to see Teach is doing better. Such beautiful photos!

  3. LOL. Fabulous photos.

  4. What an interesting pair. The Abbott and Costello of the dog world, eh? Glad to hear Teach is mending well!

  5. Everything about this story makes me happy (except maybe Roxy being such a diva!) and the photos are lovely!

  6. HAHA ... Love Roxy as a Diva ... its exactly what she is.

  7. I am so glad he is doing SO well!! Hopefully he will be back to himself with no restrictions very soon!!
