Happy Dogs At Clear Pond - Part 1

The dogs and I drove to the White Hill Wild Forest, about 12 miles from home. I turned at the newly painted sign and began the rather long drive through the forest:

The one lane gravel road took us through the forest and across a beaver pond:

This beaver pond was both wild and scenic, yet accessible by car:

We drove a couple of miles to the parking area and headed off down the trail:

The first stop and, as it turned out, our only stop, was at Clear Pond. We've been here many times before, and the dogs love it:

Daphne was the first to jump into the water, bouncing up and down, splashing like a happy seal:

Seamus walked in amongst the gigantic Bullfrog tadpoles. He didn't do any excited splashing. He just likes to be in the water:

We walked back up to the trail which, I knew, would take us to more shoreline access. Little Jack was so excited that he was running in broad circles. He continued his running all the time we were there:

The trail brought us back to the edge of Clear Pond:

The dogs explored, Seamus walking and Jack running:

And they all had fun sniffing in the wildflower meadows along the shore:

Seamus and Daphne went into the water again, but I was too slow to get a photo. By the time I snapped a picture, Daphne was back on the trail and running again. This was all great fun, but we still had lots more to see. I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
