Washoe Lake County Park
It was a shorter trip up to South Dakota and back but we enjoyed every bit of it. We are just a few miles from California but when traveling this way we stop to see our soon-to-be daughter-in-law's father.
Overlooking the lake in the distance.
We just stayed a few days but I got some nice hikes in.
Hurley and I headed out early to beat the heat and hiked the Ophir Creek Trail. It's a moderate 7 mile trip.
I got a kick out of this Poop Fairy sign.
Then on to more serious stuff.
We started out by the creek and Hurley soaked up some nice cold creek water to start things out.
The scent of the pines in the heat is one of my favorite smells!
There was plenty of shade about 2/3's of the way.
By now we were taking lots of breaks in the shade so he could rest.
What a happy boy once we got back down and he could cool off in the creek again!
We always have a great time! Looking forward to Brennan and Alex's wedding next May!
It was a great visit. Now we'll hide at one of our favorite spots for a couple of weeks and chill before Ryan and Diana's wedding next month.
