6/22/16 Saxl Park

Forecast was for rain but it was sunny when we got up so we went to nearby Saxl Park. This is in town and abuts another more traditional city park- Cascade. I won't try to trace our route because we just wandered- it's basically a large meadow with mowed paths. There are also some trails into woods.

Nice clover at the start

 There is a small pond near the start

 Looking across the meadow

 and down

At the back of Cascade Park is this cascade. Kelley looked at it but I don't think she liked the falling water

She did, however, like laying in the water running down the hill

Coming out of the woods and back to Saxl

 Last chance at the pond

This was a pleasant hour. Kelley did well - we hadn't been here in a long time and she likes variety.


  1. That top shot of the map is a shining example of why I am always LOST.....they have too many cutovers. I'd never know where I was at!
    Looks like some fine weather--very pretty clouds in the sky.

    1. Since the meadow is not that large you don't get lost- in other places i do but Kelley usually can scent the trail. It was a pretty day.
