In all the times we've been to the Petersburg National Battlefield we've never experienced The Crater!
You can't ride your bike there, so I guess that's why! And, it's the farthest away from the other part of the park where the trails are!
It was a little chilly, but a good hike!
We stopped at the audio stations and explored the various points.
We headed down a new trail! We had noticed people walking, but never knew how they got to these parts of the park.
Charlie is always up for hiking "off road" in new places. He loves the trail. But if you think for one minute that he will jog with us on our road think again! It must be too boring for him!
He likes to go to the park. He will hike forever in a new place!
He gets so irritated when I make him pose for pics!! There's no time for this in his mind!
If it was a little warmer he would have been in this creek!
The different plaques had different stages of the battle/timeline.
The park had just built this new bridge and we were anxious to find it! Apparently, there's a new short trail section added too!
Another pic here!
This is the "come on, let's go!" look...
So much to see!
Then, we attempted a "groupie!"
And, this one Charlie couldn't resist licking mid-shot!
We do enjoy the sights and scenery at the park!
It's great to learn about things that are right under your nose!
One last pose before heading out!
We got in about a 3 mile hike before it got quite cold! If you're ever in the area, check out the Petersburg National Battlefield!
