So after our Frying Pan drenching on Monday, we headed up the road toward the Craggy Gardens area and did the hike over to Craggy Pinnacle. Still foggy, but at least no rain. This picture is of the visitor center, closed because of the cave in under the road (which we go around, so safe). This is at 3 in the afternoon, so you can see the fog never lifted at the 5000′ elevations:
The dogs, of course, never cared and loved their hike in the cool air. You can see how much fun the “Red Team” was having – Cheoah in the foreground, Kodiak in middle, and Rusty on the far end.
So up to the Pinnacle and take a quick break before heading back down. Because the fog was so thick we could see absolutely nothing, I took pictures of the dogs instead. Here is Cheoah smiling for the camera:
And Rusty smiling for the camera:
And Natasha smiling . . . Oh wait, this is Queen Natasha the Evil and she does not ever do something just because you want her to (except to occasionally totally throw you off your game). Just like the last time we were at Craggy and Natasha would not pose for pictures (by the way, in that link you can see what the view is supposed to be like when the fog is not there). So instead of smiling for the camera, she is hunting for some bug that has crawled under a rock. Please ignore the human feet in the picture except to note that she is always under foot:
Oh well, pictures are over and back down the trail. Since I showed the Red Team, here is the Black and White team headed down the trail – from left to right – Natasha, Qannik and Kiska:
Happy tails – er, trails!
