Linking Trails

Grand View Trail in shadow
Dr. K, Becca and I hiked the Grand View Trail, crossed Fresnal Canyon Road and linked up to the Bridal Veil Falls Trail in order to extend our hike.  We only did a short section of the latter trail.  The audio-less video at the bottom shows us descending the steep trail to the footbridge over the creek.  The weather was absolutely beautiful for an early-morning hike.  When we got back to the ranch we were greeted by a canine welcome wagon:  Hoss (Brown Lab), his dad, Champ (Black Lab), Hailey (Blue Heeler) and Cowboy (Australian Shepherd).

Those dogs are such characters.

Thanks, Liz! Dr. K sometimes feels completely overwhelmed by those canine characters.


A Nice Bushwhack
