|We look forward to hiking here again.|
It will make a good summertime hike when we are looking for a place to swim the dogs.
There are a variety of short trails to get some variations in this hike.
|Laurel Pond. There was a prettier place (complete with lawn chairs!) to swim the dogs, but there was already a couple there with 3 dogs. We decided to continue on to Wonder Lake to swim.|
|The dogs approached Wonder Lake before us. They were super excited.|
|A flock of geese approached us.|
|The hike continues a long ways next to Wonder Lake. The dogs were constantly in and out of the lake.|
