we set out with the dog and a some picnic fixings
headed north about 1 1/2 hours to colville, washington then another 29 miles on a road that was made for motorcycle riders. And many were enjoying it.
along the way we saw a sign for crystal falls and we stopped to take a peek
then on to Frater lake a place where in the winter there are lot of snow shoers and skiers hitting the trails. But this hot august afternoon we only saw cows, a small frog some caterpillers and lots of cow pies
it was a short 1.8 miles around the lake according the book we bought on eastern washington hikes. perfect for taking our little short legged dog along.
for the skiers there is a warming house available in the winter but it is locked up during the summer
loved these little flowers along the way
we heard the buzzing of many bees but didn't see many till we were trying to eat which we then decided it best we do back in the car. but this little frog was so cute he looked like a little frog
most of the trail was through the woods but when we could see the lake it was beautiful here you can see the cows and the beaver dam.
well that was our short little hike for the day but it was a great day hoping to get another one in next week
