Trinity Alps Part 3

We woke up to a beautiful morning!

I normally don't sleep well my first night out backpacking because I hear bears and mountain lions and other scary things whenever the wind blow or a dog shifts but I slept SO well that night.

I made Kirk wear a booty on her cut paw.  She didn't like it at all.

Although she was fine with it when we started hiking.  I started out with her on leash, but that didn't last very long.  And the booty didn't last much longer.  There were so many water crossings that it became a pain to pick her up and carry her over so I just took off her boot and let her go.

Can you spot Rampage?

We had a more leisurely hike out than we did on the way in and stopped to let the dogs play in the water.  This was Bear Creek (I think).

We also found a nice path down to a swimming hole at Swift Creek.

It wasn't TOO swift, but I did almost lose Rammy down the rapids to the left at first, the water was moving fast there!

So then I sat there to block the way.

Rampage loved the water here but Kirk and Brew weren't so sure, maybe due to the current.
