A Gorgeous Saturday

Our weather was absolutely perfect – a gorgeous Saturday. Low of 44F (7C), high of 63F (17C), crystal clear blue skies, and a light breeze. You guessed it – we spent our day out on the trails. And we plan to do it again Sunday.


Cheesewhiz, Typhoon and Frankie are showing their enthusiasm for hiking.

And notice that Typhoon, as the youngest, was the designated bear bell wearer.

And, yes, the entire Herd was on the hike. The photographer just captured the younger crew.
