Swimming in the river and blackberry pie
We drove up to Auburn yesterday with the intention of hiking along this remote trail to the river we read about on the internet. Unfortunately that required driving down a road that our car was not going to make so we drove around looking for a plan B. Although it took us awhile to find another place to hike that allowed dogs, we finally happened upon a trail/road along the confluence.
It was not without other people, but people were very dog-friendly and once we hiked a few miles in we were close enough to alone.
Hazel even got in the water and actually swam for a minute, which is very unlike her. I think the heat does crazy things to her brain.
On our way back we picked a big bag of blackberries, which I turned into a pie last night.
And a happy Bench Monday to you!
