We think Punxsutawney Phil may have gotten his prediction (six more weeks of winter) wrong this year, for we saw plenty signs of spring on this hike: buds, flowers, mating birds, and caterpillars.
The creeks were flowing after the recent rains.
Making a statement is no excuse to leave a poop bag behind. Remember, there is no Poop Patrol to pick up doggie bags.
The creek was full! We were unable to walk alongside it this time.

OK fine. We'll go the other way.
The remains of the deceased cow we saw in the ravine when we were here before.
Noreen and Dawn took the easier (?) way.
Someone needs to go boot shopping!
