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!!
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?
