After yesterday's hike Kelley seemed a little gimpy so even though she seemed fine this morning, I chose a short easy hike with lots of water.
We started from the end of Kittredge Rd. and walked across the meadow and down to the beaver pond. for a swim.
Besides getting in a couple of swims she got to see some fiends who were also using the pond.
We went a short ways on West Trail and then took a side trail over to the old rail bed. A short distance on that and then back to another side trail and then one I wasn't familiar with that I hoped would take us back to West- it did.
It was quite breezy so I ended up with a lot of out of focus pictures of wildflowers. This hawkweed was the best of the lot.
Back to the beaver pond for a couple more dips and up the hill to our car. It had been a pleasant hour and a half.
