Starting our hike at 9:30am.
What's inside the forest?
Wait for me!!!
2 curly tails. 2 happy dogs.
The fog started to disappear but it stayed cool under the trees.
Just 2 love bugs ❤️️
About half way through the forest clears and the trail opens up to a wide plain with lots of wild flowers and a picnic area.
Something in the bushes is very interesting...
Can you spot me?!
Hey Caesar! Wait for us!
Chai likes to stay close to his mom.
Waterfall! One of many...
Lots of fresh running water.
The trails are leash only, partially because dogs (and humans) aren't allowed in the creek and waterfalls. We saw a mix of dogs on and off leash, although there are rangers in the area.
Chai really likes balls and sticks. In fact, sometimes he cries when he can't pick up a stick that's too big. He's very good at chewing them, too.
Just follow the (very clear) water...
Did you get the picture?
Checking out another waterfall.
This trail is everything a forest trail should be: soft dirt, mud, the smell of trees, a babbling brook and big rocks. Even though it was chilly the fog made it extra magical, and everyone we came across was so friendly. There was even a tiny pup learning to hike!
