Today I want for a hike with Dottie and Appelina’s mother, who is in town for a week. She will henceforth be known as C-mom (Canada-mom). We went to Franklin Canyon Park and had a great time sniffing trees and chasing squirrels. And then Dottie discovered the sunbathing turtles (red-eared sliders, invasive)! Don’t worry, no turtles were harmed or eaten.
