Trips taken with my Labrador Retrievers.
The mountain rainfall outlook was high. So we took our final trip of the year to Eastern Washington.
It took some wrong turns to get to the south entrance to Lord Hill Regional Park finally.
Glad to have gained some elevation the day after we hiked the flattish Camano Ridge Trail.
Today we visited Camano Island for the first time after having driven past the exit countless times.
While most people were opening up presents, the pups and I checked out the Heybrook Lookout.
Today we took our new apprentice on a short trip to Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park.
We brought our young recruit out on his first hike. This trip could have been our shortest in 2019.
There are a dozen Goat Mountains in Washington State. By contrast, only three Goat Peaks.
One of my goals for the year 2019 was to explore more of the Olympic Peninsula and the vicinity.
The yellow pup and I visited the neighboring Sopwith Camel Mountain last spring in the sunshine.
The view out to Columbia River would have been excellent had it not been for the persistent clouds.
We wrapped up the Thanksgiving streak with our fourth and final trip on San Juan Island.
It had been nearly a decade since the black pup and I went up to the Icicle Ridge Lookout.
The pup and I continued our Thanksgiving week tradition on Norse Peak.
There hadn't been much snow in the past few weeks. So I decided to give The Brothers a try.
Our November trips alternated between Teanaway and the desert so to avoid the rain altogether.
