This afternoon we tried something new, something we've been remiss in doing for the almost 4 years we have lived in Kennesaw. We went to the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.
We did not see a lot of it, but we definitely plan to return. We decided we wanted to go for a walk and we wanted to take Lucy with us and dogs are welcome there. We met lots of folks who had the same idea including a miniature greyhound, 2 pugs, a poodle/schnuaser mix, and Caeser the great dane. We walked with Caesar and his parents for a good bit.
We walked about 3/4 of a mile on one of the trails and then turned back so we could find some water for the dog. Lucy got a lot of compliments and a lot of people think she is younger than her 3 years because she is not a fat bassett hound.
When we return, I will definitley take my camera, for the dogs and for the nature and for the history. The battle took place during Sherman's march to the sea in 1864. It's an amazing thing walking the trail under the canopy of trees and thinking almost 150 years ago there was a battle being waged right there.
