Forum Rules
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.

Map to trail head and our hike
http://goo.gl/maps/VQfrD
the stats are off and we were a bit slow on this one, it should be about a 5mile RT and about a 3hr hike if you move with little stopping but up at the lake. Heather and Jarod caught up to me on the highway and followed me to the trailhead, this was my 3rd time shoeing this trail and their 2nd.
the Wind was crazy as you will see but we had sunshine so it was ok with me. Now to the best part, Pictures!


we had a snow trail


and then we did not.....


Heather and Ro


WIND!!!!!


after a mile hike on the road you come to the trailhead.


Koda, Jack, and Sierra were ready


Ro and Jack


Jack says COME ON GUYS

Jack


Koda showing off his new RW pack, he was being a brat and not looking at me

I am severely jealous of you. I want to start hiking with Onyx but we don't really have that sort of scenery to hike in. I have 2 drive maybe 2 hours north to get into forest and hills. No mounts here in the mitten state Crying or Very sad

lol great pics, looks like loads of fun (minus the wind... i hate cold wind ;x). wish i lived in an area like that, we have very few trails around here and the ones we do have are very short (at the most 2 miles).

13th pic down is my favoriet.

Awesome! I was planning on going there last weekend, but my friend decided not to go for some dumb reason. Can you let them off leash there?

Well people had off leash dogs but had leashes in hand and for the most part all dogs were friendly. I would not let the huskies off as its to wooded and I don't do off leash in the woods. I did unhook them from me, kept leash on them at the lake so they could sniff around we were also a good few hrs in so they were ok.
