6/2/17 Branch Lake

Sunny morning but rain forecast for this afternoon and much of the next week so I was determined to get in a hike.

Kelley was not enthusiastic at the start and lagged behind, but after a bit she got into it and did well - maybe she loosened up with the movement.

There were finally flowers - lots of Lady Slippers

a few Trillium

 and lots of these tiny flowers I do not know

The lake shore looking south

and North

Because the shore is rocky and also much is wooded or shrubby, there are only a few places Kelley can easily get in the water

another spot

More lady slippers on the way back

 and there were lots of Bunchberries

Almost back to the car Kelley gets in a muddy little stream

This turned out to be a pleasant hour and a half hike.
