A tree with ornaments, each in memory of a furry friend in Carmel

I know, this should be a Holiday story but I just came on it today and it's too long until next Christmas.

Today my friend Sharon of Lobos Lodge) and I, along with Sophie the Jack Russel terrier, went for a stroll at Mission Trail Nature Reserve. We were looking for the tree where people leave a Christmas ornament with the name of their pet who has passed away. Sure enough, it was still decorated with these heart warming monuments to furry family members.

Frankly, I don't know if these get taken down at some point and only new ones put up during the Holiday Season, or it is a conglomeration of several years that stay up. Note to self: check this out.

I think this is a fabulous way to remember your pet during a very emotionally charged time of the year!!

Mission Trails Nature Reserve Carmel

Mission Trails Nature Reserve Carmel Mission Trails Nature Reserve Carmel

Located directly across the street from the Carmel Mission on Rio Road, Mission Trail Nature Preserve was designated a nature reserve in 1976. The reserve boundaries encompass 35 acres of unspoiled native vegetation and offer the public meandering walking and hiking trails through a secluded wooded area. Carmelites and their dogs find this reserve a great alternative to exercising along Carmel's sandy beach.

DIDN'T I MENTION BEFORE THAT CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA IS A DOG FRIENDLY CITY?
