Hiking Big Elk Creek in Idaho
Since Sunday was my birthday, I wanted to go for a hike. I think we have hiked every year for the past 8 or 9 years. Mr Google told me there was a hiking trail not too far from us, so off we went.
Big Elk Creek is a beautiful area. The creek ends up in a nice size lake that adjoins Palisades reservoir. The trail goes up the canyon for miles, but we didn’t go quite that far. It is unusually hot here right now, and none of us were up for a marathon hike.
The creek is beautiful, and the forest is super thick here.
Apparently there was a very wet spring, so the flowers are amazing.
Hiking all in a row.
After a couple of miles, we were hot, the dogs were hot, and we wanted to get near the creek.
Torrey ran right in, up to her ankles. Al decided to help her get even more cooled off.
She was not impressed.
I got Roxy and her hiking shirt wet so she could cool down too. Then she found the good shady spot.
Al said I needed a photo with the dogs, since I am always the one behind the camera.
So photogenic. LOL
It was a nice little hike, and a great way to spend the day.
