Fairy and troll land, in images

Vegas and I made good on our promise to the beanies (our dogs) yesterday and took them for a hike up one of the nearby ski hills - we discovered this lovely and quasi-deserted path last year and were looking forward to going back - and yey! It was as lovely as we remembered it :-)
Gettin' ready, dogs foaming at the bit and all:

Religiously green:

The footpath that meanders along the creek
is a work of art in itself:

Pause for olfactory delights:

The great thing about this walk is that
the dogs never go thirsty:

Nature's path of awesomeness:

Huff! Puff! Huff!

Yey! Made it to the waterfall:

Another pause for resting, pics n'stuff:

Sweet happy Maika:

Happy Dakotah, our tired trooper:

Leaving fairyland...

...but not before admiring the stumps.

If you want to hear the creek music that accompanied us on our hike,
just click on the below :-)

The End :-)

Great post, A! I love the pix of the furkids. They look so incredibly happy frolicking about - especially in the water.

This looks like a slice of heaven.
It reminds me of our time in North Carolina, walking trails and letting the dogs run. So much fun.
Nothing better than a flowing creek.
So, are you ready to go back??? said...

Oh my it's a beautiful spot. I know that my Skye would have a ball but all I see is here taking off and never getting her back. Your dogs are awesome. Great pictures. You must do that more often.
