First Day of Retirement
I had been scoping out picnic areas in Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest.
This was late this morning at Beckler River Campground a little over an hour away on Hwy 2, one of his favorite routes. Quite a nice campground in the forest, pretty empty on a Monday on a cloudy cool summer day. Seems like all of June and July have been cool and cloudy. Summer anybody? They had a separate picnic area right by the river.. That's the Beckler River burbling behind him.
Then another ten miles to Deception Falls, a beautiful area where you can see some great rapids and waterfalls very close to the road. Some great very short trails. I did the accessible trail. A lot of white water for .2 miles. Dennis took the longer trail with Teddy who decided that he wanted to run the trail at a full gallop. Dennis was game and the two of them dashed up and down stone steps and along the river.
I took the picture of the lower falls from a footbridge above.
