Whomever built this trail was clearly paying homage to The Swiss Family Robinson, and when you were a kid, you probably wished you could live in that family's tree house. Well at Mcdowell Falls, you can! Who needs Disneyland.
It is entirely possible that Cookie The Dog enjoyed her time on the hike more than we did. She would run ahead and then turn back to make sure we were coming.
Oh, and that is TOTALLY not a fake forest background that can so often be found in 80's era family photos.
A man, his dog, and his dad. Look closely for the dad. Right there, on the right.
The next two photos are good examples of the theory of perspective. Items that are closer to the camera lense appear large (Brian's head). Items that are farther away appear much smaller (my head). And here, the highlight of our hike. The slug.
We grow 'em big 'round here.
More to come, dear readers. Stay tuned...
