We've been to Argus Ranch a number of times for Nose Work and lure events. We always pass by the old Weyerhaeuser campus and I often say "I want to stop by that place". So after D'light's lure event we stopped off to check it out.
Viva says "Another great place!"
This is big campus and on the grounds you will find The Rhododendron Species Foundation & Botanical Garden and The Pacific Bonsai Museum
We focus on the main building on the campus
The place is empty...
Viva taking in the environment
Lots to see
Viva looking inside the building which was empty
Down the long corridor we go
A huge meadow
We skirt around what is the front of the building
So much fun!
We find a large pond that has lots of waterfowl in it
Viva is really enjoying herself!
More watching of the pond far below us
We complete our circle and I see a sign off in the distance
We head over to check it out
Well this is bummer! No pets!
Viva says "What do you mean no pets?!".
So, back to the car Viva goes.
I saw a security guard and flagged him down. Sure enough there are not pets allowed on the grounds. This is due to the waterfowl which is protected here.
I head back and take a few more pictures.
There were a lot of geese here
This really is a neat place to explore if you are dog free. There is a foot path around the pond and through a lot of the wooded areas of the campus.
