Happy Dogs At Clear Pond - Part 1

We arrived at the White Hill Wild Forest and walked immediately down to the edge of Clear Pond. It is, after all, a major attraction in this forest preserve:

And the dogs loved it, though only Seamus went in:

And he really did go in, splashing around and having a grand time:

Clover stayed on land, exploring the work of local beavers:

We had the entire forest to ourselves, so I let the dogs run and play to their hearts' content. I was in no mood to holler at them:

Jack went down to check out the water but was careful to keep his feet dry:

Happy dogs:

Daphne wove her way through the stumps which beavers had left behind:

And we worked our way along the water's edge:

The scenery here is so wild and beautiful that it's always a joy to visit. On this day, however, swarms of black flies did their best to dampen my spirits:

We ventured back into the forest sometimes, only to return to Clear Pond:

Like me, the dogs seemed happiest when they were at the water's edge:

Clover and Daphne climbed up on a big rock for a better view, and then we continued on our way. I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
