Family Outing

If you count dogs as family (which we do) then today can best be described as a “family outing.”

Sheila had the brilliant idea of taking us to Davis Creek north of Kaslo and then on to the falls (I have already forgotten their name).

So – off we went for a stiff straight-up one-hour 600-metre climb to the lookout above Davis Creek. The trail was a beauty: single track (yay!), well maintained and, well, straight up of course. It was wonderfully scenic. When we didn’t have vistas of lake and mountains, we had wonderful cliff faces and far valleys to gaze at.

After the lookout, we continued on for a bit until the snow got too deep. To heck with snow! This was supposed to be a snow-free hike and besides, we had not brought our snowshoes – so we headed back down, ate lunch in the car and drove on to the falls south of Kaslo. We’d almost decided not to go but I think we both trusted Sheila when she said they were worth seeing.

Truthfully, the whole little park area containing the falls was worth the drive. The beach with its camp sites and picnic tables was gorgeous and the falls were truly beautiful.

All this meant that the puppies got two great walks that included swimming and snow rolling for Shanara and for Abby – the tail end of my sandwich. In other words, they both were well-satisfied.

So we got back home, I had my requisite hot bubble bath and the house is so warm (south facing windows) that we don’t even have a fire yet.

Hurrah!

So this is the prelude to the next two days: up at 5 a.m. and major mountains to climb. Oh boy! (I think).
