I have a 4 mile loop trail I generally hike here but today the wife and I had our two Beagles with us. Dolly is 8 and Willie is 12. Willie has been slowing down in his old age. I am 65 and Willie maybe even older then that in dog years. One of the main reasons we brought them here is because most of the trails are shaded and that worked out fine. We arrived early to beat the heat but it was 80 degrees when we left. The Trails are All marked and color coded. We saw a Deer on the section along the Marsh.. We also saw a Snake and Cedar Waxwing birds eating old berries. We always see Wildlife here. The only section I don't let is the road walk back. No Shade.
