Happy Dogs At Clear Pond - Part 2

The dogs and I were enjoying the scenic beauty of Clear Pond in the White Hill Wild Forest (see also Part 1, posted yesterday). Seamus was also enjoying the chilly water:

I was photographing wildflowers, and Jack came over to "help" me with this Red Trillium:

In spite of the black flies, it was a quiet and serene experience:

We walked back into the woods and picked up the hiking trail:

But soon walked back down to the pond:

Seamus went into the water once again, but the other dogs were careful to stay dry:

But it was time to return to our car, so once again we hit the trail:

I stopped at an old house foundation:

There was also a very large concrete foundation. I've heard that this was once a Boy Scout camp. There was an entryway under the floor slab which some wild animal had been using. I was worried that my dogs might try to go in there, but they wisely chose not to:

Before we left, we stopped at the brook which carried the runoff from Clear Pond. It too was scenic:

Seamus trotted across the brook as if it wasn't even there, but Daphne and Clover weren't so sure about crossing it;

Eventually Daphne, Clover, Fergus and Seamus crossed the brook, though Jack and I walked around and used the bridge:

Soon we were back at our little red car and on our way home:
