Today's hike with our friend Susan and her dogs Rizzie and Bandit took us up USFS Road 97 near the Sunburst Campground on Hwy 215. It was a wonderful 5 mi hike between thunder storms this afternoon, the thundering was rumbling all around us but we stayed dry. Sky is playing in the pool by the Little Beartrap Waterfall

It was a wonderful day spent in the woods, it was cool and green with wildflowers everywhere, and mist hanging in the woods. We took a chance on the weather and were rewarded with some beautiful scenery.
