A visit to Rattlesnake Lake - Part 3

If you missed it, here's Part 1 and Part 2 of this series:
Lots of great hollowed out stumps like this!

I love how the wood has aged and again lots to look at.

The dogs are really having a great time

There were some dogs (leashed and of leash) but, this place is so big that we were able to get enough distance.  It was good work for Viva and she did well all things considered.

D'light wanting to get a birds eye view!

Figuring out how to get down...

He made it down no problem and then watched the birds

Beautiful Viva!

"Check this out!"


The little bit of water that is left of Rattlesnake Lake.
That's Rattlesnake ledge in the background and there is a path that will take you to the top of the rock ridge.


 Time to move on

Viva has zero problems with navigating the terrain. She was just in heaven here.

Our sweet, sweet boy!

Cool bark on this stump

The wind picked up but, that didn't slow down the dogs

D'light says "The wind is going to lift me off the ground!"

Figuring out where to go next.  D'light would like to head to the trees since trees = critters.

We are at the other end of the lake.

D'light watching Viva

"What are you doing Viva?"

"Over here D'light, check this out!"

Both dogs were interested in this broken structure.

Looks like an old chimney for a house way back in the day.

A big chunk of tile from a long gone structure

We circle the lake

Time to head back to the car. 
The dogs give this a two paws up adventure!

More pictures:

The old water markers

There was a huge heron in the water

And it had a raven buddy

More stumps and rocks

An old, old bottle in stump

And an old can

What a great and beautiful time!  Everyone was tired after this trip.


  1. What amazing photos of the dogs! But you all really are having a drought, aren't you?

    1. We've had very little rain but, it' coming over the next 5 days!
