FitDog Friday: Hiking Tyson's Corner

We're in Tyson's Corner for BlogPaws, and it's amazing.  But mom and I still need to have our walking time, and we made the most unexpected discovery -- green space in Tyson's Corner!!!

Yesterday we discovered a greenway, and this morning we explored it some more.

I wonder where this path leads

Not quite the James River

but there are some yummy smells

We followed the greenway as far as we could, and came out to a grassy clearing near some office buildings.

The pointy building in the
distance is our hotel

If we can find a trail in
Tyson's Corner, we can find
one anywhere! 

It's important to get out for walkies, even when traveling.  If you don't know where to walk, look at a satellite view of the area on Google Maps.  We saw what looked like a residential neighborhood, so we headed there for our walk, and that's how we found the greenway.  Take the time to explore -- you might be surprised what you find.


  1. We hope you are having a great time. Happy exploring Garth and have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. SlimDoggy Steve saw Garth and mom on this walk. Garth is one happy dog when he is outside. Actually, Garth is one happy dog when he is anywhere! Great to meet you Garth! (and Garth's mom and dad!)

  3. Hey Garth, great idea about using Google to find some space - getting that walk in is pretty important! Good to finally meet you & thanks for joining the Hop

  4. Lots of times when we travel we look for dog friendly hotels that are close to business parks or business areas. Then Google map can show us how much green space is there. When we are in Dee See, we like to make a trek to Rock Creek Park, which is another nice city oasis

    gussie n teka

  5. Always fun to find new places to walk! We hope you're having fun on your trip to BlogPaws.
