Where in the woods am I?

We did it again. Oreo (my dog) and I ran into another porcupine, and this time, it wasn’t in a tree but walking on the ground, obscured by tall grass. Oreo was almost right on top of the critter before I realize it was there. Fortunately, Oreo was on a leash, and I successfully dragged him in the opposite direction and wrapped his leash around a tree for good measure. A few minutes later, the porcupine waddled into the woods and Oreo and I continued down the trail.

Looking at the photo gallery below, see if you recognize where Oreo and I hiked. Leave your best guesses in the comment section at the bottom of the page. Winner gets a high five and mention in the updated post. And as always, stay tuned for tomorrow’s “1-minute hike” video and written summary of the hike!
