The swimming in the brook was fun though!

|Brook crossing at the beginning of the hike. Deep enough for swimming.|
We stopped here on the way back to swim the dogs.
|So happy to start seeing wildflowers|
|The hike feels like it ascends a lot, but no named summits.|
|Looks like house remains, just before Caesar Brook|
|Taking a break for a snack, and to throw sticks into Caesar Brook|
