Days Out

A walk on South Shore

David is headed back to Mountain View today — I am staying a couple of weeks. So we took time for a drive up Hwy 26 (toward Lake Gumboot) — we got to the usual place where  the snow plow stops clearing the road. Then we took a walk on South Shore — it was a bit slippery but the reflections on the still lake very beautiful. We walked along the path closest to the lake and it was a mix of snowy patches and clear. Frecklz took a moment to sit while we waited for David to take pictures. A very loyal dog!

A great Christmas Day walk above Box Canyon. No-one around; only a little snow and two very happy dogs.

Winter Sun

So what happened to winter? Nights not below freezing and days in the 50′s. In fact last couple of days have been sunny and even warmer (although nights back to freezing again). We have had ants and a fruit fly — and I notice the wild Azalea is budding. Went to North Shore with the dogs — no snow left (not even along the road). Guys at the lake with shirts off — it is still February? The dogs enjoyed the walk — we met several other groups of doggies. I even brushed the doggies on the picnic table! It surely is still winter — but you wouldn’t have know it from the day yesterday. Another beautiful sunny day today before some rainy weather returns.

A walk on North Shore

The dogs and I took advantage of the continuing nice weather and had several walks on North Shore of Lake Siskiyou. Best you can ask for in the middle of winter!

Winter at Bunny Flat

Last weekend we had a beautiful walk at Bunny Flat, along the road towards Panther Meadows. But the road was about 12′ beneath us:-)
