6/7/16 DeMeritt Forest


Rain the last two days and more forecast for today but sunny when we got up so we went to the nearby forest to try to get in a hike.

Clouding up by the time we got started.


There were lots of buttercups about


and water for Kelley


Dandelions gone to seed




and bunchberries


Some of the trails were a bit wet


Once more in the stream before we end our loop


After we did the loop through the woods we went across the road and down to the Stillwater River






Deep enough to swim


There is also a small cove


and another chance for Kelley before we head up the hill and back to the car





Kelley did well and was happy with all the water. There were mosquitoes but no black flies. The rain didn't come until later in the afternoon. A pleasant hike. 1  3/4 hours

  1. Looks like Kelley got a good work out today. Bet she napped good later, huh?

    1. She did well and then slept in the yard while I worked in the yard. - but she has never been one waste energy - if nothing is happening she rests.

  2. The buttercups and bunchberries are beautiful. And John, you're the only person that can make a dandelion seed pod look like a GOOD thing!

    1. Thank you Marianne - my last posts received so few viewings it didn't seem worth the trouble. Perhaps I'll give it another try
