Trail head
This stream crossing wasn't difficult, but if water is higher, it might be.
We gave the dogs a chance to cool off whenever possible.
Taking a break to cool off
Crossing a woods road
Roots over rock slabs
We often found ourselves walking across steep rock slabs.
My mantra: Just run! Another steep slab.
Summit marker
A hot day. At the summit, we found a little shade, and made the dogs rest there.
