Puppy on a Hike

Photograph by Scott Norris, My Shot

My wife and I, along with our best friends and their puppy, hiked to Falls Branch Falls near the Cherokee National Forest. This was the puppy's (Miss Charlie's) first hike, and she loved playing in the pool at the base of the falls. We threw the stick and she chased it for at least an hour. She chased the stick for so long that my wife carried her for most of the hike back to the trailhead.
