Tuesday hike with Mark and Bella!
|At the Copper Country Audubon's Lake Bailey Wildlife|
|I led the way through the cedar swamp.|
|After crossing the swamp we climbed the bluff|
and ran into snow.
|At the top we could see the lake to the north.|
|The air was dry and visibility good.|
|Oh ya, we had such a nice hike to the top.|
|Patches of snow remain up here.|
|View to the south and we could hear the stream roaring below.|
|Markers of various colors showed the way.|
Of course, us mutts didn't need no markers.
|We stopped for snacks. Mark brought his maps.|
Me and Bella keep telling him, stick with us
and you won't get lost!
|We head back down.|
|Aaaahhhhhh winter dogs can cool off here.|
This was along 5 Mile Point Road near Eagle River, where we ventured in to find the elusive Meeme falls. Mark had tried to find them years ago but failed to locate them.
|Me and Bella had to wait on the slow pokes, as usual.|
|It was brushy but a trail could be found.|
|Laying on the gorge edge, Sandy spied a rock engraved|
with the falls' name.
|Water was up and the falls quite nice.|
|The little gorge had many rapids in it.|
|We found what appeared to be an old bridge location.|
|We crossed the creek via "natural" bridge.|
|We hiked upstream to see what we could find. |
Adventure dogs are all about that!
|We had such nice adventures up north today.|
