Mahoney Lake

At the start of the trail

Wild Flower with last night's rain

More wild flowers

The Fallen Pine

Curious Cedar Waxwing

Finally we arrive back to our parked car
Yesterday Hanne decided we should try a new walk from the South end of Mahoney Lake. The temperature at 9.30 am was about 25 degrees Celsius so we should be OK without getting dehydrated. We ended up going all the way round! It took about an hour and a half and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There were a few steep hills but we survived! We found some new wild flowers, and saw several different birds and one ground squirrel. No snakes thank goodness! Here are a few photos....

"Here are few photos" A great little throw away line to accompany some absolutely stunning images. Welcome back after your break.

Thank you Alan for your welcome. We are glad to be back after the flurry of multiple visitors and a series of serious partying events celebrating my first and final entry into the 80's!

Wonderful shots. The dark colored flower is a new one for me to see.
