Jani and I decided to take an adventure across Passcreek this afternoon. I even DROVE...a 100 mile circuit never traveling more than 10-25 miles per hour and we took the pups with us. We stopped to let them "swim" and wade. My Kemmer up by me int he photo below is not NOT a lover of water, but she finally did wade some...that's Kady in the water.
12 1/2 year old Kady loves the water (below).

We continued up the Passcreek Road toward the Howe Highway (39 miles on a dirt road) enjoying a couple of hawks as we went, first just sitting along side the road. We also saw one female mule deer crossing the road.
Then, taking flight.
