Dog Creek Trail

Down past the fish hatchery is a trail to the river. 
It's called Dog Creek Trail.  It is really beautiful.

So let's get started! 
Just follow Sir Bear and he will lead you to the trail.

Oh look, we beat him there. He's an old slow poke you know. That's cause he's just plain old.  He likes to stop and smell the roses. And the leaves. And the dirt. And the grass. And the bugs. And - - you get the picture, he stops to smell everything!

This is a very interesting storyboard. I hope you can enlarge it to read it.  The pictures I posted yesterday did not enlarge like they were supposed to. I don't know if it is a Blogger thing or what.  But you used to be able to click on them twice and make them huge. :(  Anyway, I hope you can read it.

Looks like we are on the right trail!

There were a couple of bridges to walk across and the water below was so sparkly. Somewhere I have a picture of it for you.  Hmmm. Now where did I put that picture?

We walked and we walked. We were so happy that it didn't rain. 
 It was a beautiful day.

Finally we came across a resting place. 
The bench had a dedication plaque on it.  Very touching.

Lady G and I paused a moment to pose for pictures.

And here is another storyboard. I hope you can read it!

Another bridge!  Will we ever get there? 

More of the seemingly endless trail. . .

But look!  What's that blue stuff?

We made it!  Isn't it beautiful?

Wow!  Who knew this was at the end of the trail?

Sir Bear was ready for a cool drink after all that walking.

I just wanted to cool my feet off.

It was a secret fishing hole too. We saw three fishermen and two more were coming down the trail as we left.

This tree had some cool moss hanging on it.

Back on the road to the truck.

And time to load up and go back to camp.  Bear has a ramp because he cannot get into the truck anymore.  But I like to use it too.  It's much easier than jumping up that high.

This was the last day here. 
The next day we moved on to our favorite spot in Washington....

But first we had to go see our friend Les Schwab.

Stay tuned!
