1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Well with the idea of going snowboarding out the window with our late night on Friday and the high winds in the hills we stayed home. BUT i wanted to do something near by so i opened the maps on my phone and looked for a big lake to walk around and Barr lake came up near by. with only a $7 entrance fee it was not so bad as other state parks near by. we got a late start at 11:30 and forgot our sunscreen Sad we could only do half the lake as the other half is a refuge with bald eagles and such but it was still a 8 mile round trip starting at the nature center crossing the dam, hitting the you cant go farther and then turning around, thank god for the cloud cover that came half way into the "hike" as we would have ran out of water, there is only one stop for water and potty and its at the boat ramp section about 2.5miles from the nature center and thats it! it was a nice urban adventure and we did the 8 miles in 3hours with from what my tracks say we only stopped for a total of 30m. the trail is bordered by the lake on the one side and a canal on the other for the one half of it, in the summer this would be a great morning hike before the heat hits and i bet the trees in bloom will give great shade, right now there is really no shade options. i wore my hiking boots and got a nice blood blister on the bottom of my heal, time to get these feet back in hiking shape! ok on to pictures Smile

That flat 14'ers sign really made me laugh. Very Happy

I can't get over how pretty Sierra looks! She's got such a sweet face.
