Hey, Scouts--it's Buster, the Ultimate Canine Explorer--back again
with another small account of a routine journey to the far ends of the earth!
Next to the Norway Maelstrom and the Pillars of Hercules, my favorite
spot for an afternoon exploration is Quinnipiac Gorge. All I need is my
crazed human-with-Y-chromosome, and we're off! Maybe we'll see
some giant ground sloths or wooly mastiffs....
I'll bet a wooly mastiff ripped this tree down! I hear that they're not
especially well-mannered creatures...
Ah--the Fabled Upside-Downtree of Quinnipiac.
Home of the mythical Rightside-Up Sloth.
And the Den of the Dreaded Cave Terrier!
I must be brave.
In the Land of Siltstone, one must be cautious. I heard that three airedales got
buried under forty feet of this stuff when the cliff collapsed, and it took them
four whole minutes to dig themselves out!
Take THAT, vile siltstone !
A bubbling spring... why does the sound of this make me want to raise my leg?
And we come to the infamous Rottweiler Rapids!
There used to be an old railroad bridge here--until a large Rottweiler
bit a chunk out of the stone foundation and the bridge was swept downstream.
Darn, I'm thirsty! A pint of Guinness would sure be nice!
I think I'll just sit here and imagine that the river is flowing with the Nectar of Celtic
Mother Goddesses...although a Harps Lager would do almost as well...
