|Dena & Bella|
First we met up at the Bracken Gate of the tree farm. It was a beautiful morning - if you like blazing sunshine, heat & humidity - which I don't! :-) Even so - it was a Ride morning so that mitigated the weather!
Our thrill of the ride came when we saw a Turkey Vulture perched on a snag. As I was getting out my phone for a photo, it took to the air & Bella was suddenly almost in our laps! :-) Dena said she could feel her hear pounding under the saddle! Next - a huge hawk took to the sky! They'd been feeding on something & we counted eight birds in the air circling! After going on one of the few "loops" that I've memorized, we drove down to Haller Park - Dena decided that she wanted the "Bridge Experience"!
First, over the Big Bridge! It's a scary place - especially with the river below full of kids, parents, teenagers - anyone wanting to cool off in the low waters of the Stillaquamish! Bella was Very Brave & over we went! Next we rode on north - to the Arch for the mandatory photo!
