Mabel in the Arroyo

Last month, when I was feeling homesick, I took Mabel to the Arroyo. All the trees remind me of my grandparent's farm... With all the repairs still going on from the Station Fire, things have changed a lot in there.  We had always seen this little reservoir just past the ranger station, but it was always fenced off. You could get to it but you had to hike up the mountain about a 1/4 mile and back down the stream... and do the reverse to leave. So, we've never gotten to swim there. But oh, what we've been missing!

Now that the fence was down... Mabel just walked right in. It's off the trail a bit but eventually a few doggies did join us but we had it all to ourselves for quite a long time considering it was a Sunday and the trail was busy!

The pond was not very deep which is ideal for Mabel... she likes when her feet touch the bottom...silly baby!

Watching some other pups arriving.

The pond is fed by a lovely stream

It's just gorgeous there!

Keeping her eye on the stick!

Got it!
