Hiking and Swimming the Canyon in February?

Another enjoyable day here in the Foothills. Four adults, four tweeny girls and three dogs ambled down the Canyon for a hike today.

Trying not to fall off a boulder (I've got broken ribs you know...)

Enjoying the rapids...

Angel swimming...


The girls wave before they go swimming in the very cold snow melt....




Ah, spring. A bullfrog egg...


This is why we live here. Just an hour's hike down the canyon brings us to isolative beauty.

Great new profile photo Allen.

And a fantastic canyon. I can see why you enjoy tooling around there.

Any trout swimming around in that creek?

Take care,

Larry
