4/24/17 DeMeritt Forest

55 and sunny - a nice day for a hike. We still have  Conner with us and I don't know if she has been here before. Had trouble with the camera so messed up a bunch of shots.

Hard to believe but a bit of ice on the Logan Rd.

The small stream was clear but I had to move some windfalls so Kelley could get to it

There was water everywhere and Kelley took advantage. Cooper is not interested in the water.

I only got them together by anchoring Cooper's leash to a stump.

More water - this time with a bit of ice.

 After our loop through the woods we went across the road to check out the Stillwater River. Kelley was into the small cove before we could actually reach the river. Cooper was interested in exploring the shore but not the water.

Water in the river was quite high.

So instead of getting in at her usual spot she chose an unphotogenic spot.

Then it was back to the car. Cooper did very well and seemed to enjoy our outing.  Kelley was not as energetic has she was yesterday but perked up for the water. Still a pleasant hike with the woods to ourselves. 1 1/4 hours 


  1. 55 with sunshine is great weather for a hike.
    Sounds like a fine outing.
    Have a good day.

    1. Hi Sue - yes, good weather and hike - a good day to you too.

  2. I'll bet Kelley is happy to have so much open water now.

    1. You would win that bet and there is water everywhere -

  3. I guess dogs are a lot like people..some are interested in somethings that others are not..they keep us guessing..

    1. Yes, you are right about likes and dislikes - Cooper also doesn't get excited about food like Kelley does
