This time we headed north to a hospital at Salmon Creek. I stayed in the dark, clammy parking garage while she registered and got the map.
Then I was invited to get out of the car and come along! We took off down the sidewalk, swishing through the fall leaves. At the bridge we peered down at teeny Salmon Creek. It was waaay down there. I was happily exploring the scents and sights and looked forward to some squirrel hunting.
|Here I am wondering if I was going to have to sign up for classes|
|This is a really good squirrel tree!|
I found out that there were trails on that campus, some dirt and some paved. We headed up the hill into a shady treed area. Prime squirrel hunting territory! I was happy. I tried to look up each and every tree.
|Here I am sniffing around.|
There was interesting public art on that campus and many more trees. It is a great place to walk and explore, especially on a fall day.
Once we got up the hill we saw the campus buildings and thought it looked like a great place FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GO TO SCHOOL.
WSU is pretty nice. They put doggie clean-up bags along the trails. I noticed there weren't any dog water dishes out. But I felt relieved actually. It looked like it was not a college for dogs. This wasn't a place where I was going to have to work. This was just a wonderful place to explore and enjoy nature... and squirrels!
|Nice campus but they don't offer a degree in squirrel hunting|
I had a great day enjoying the autumn sunshine and learned that college campuses can also be for walking, sniffing and exploring.
And then, of course, I took a long nap!
