8/26/2020. Hiking with friends

8/18/2020 Denny’s Creek to Melakwa lake.
Monday was a hiking day! I found this not far from us a very interesting trail -Denny’s Creek to Melakwa lake. Parking at the trail head was a very busy place- that worried me a little bit, but once we got to the first falls, the crowds – mostly parents with hordes of kids thinned out, and the higher we got the fewer people there were. Some trail info was saying that it was 3 to 4 miles one way which sounded not bad, so we took a Dixie with us- at the end – my GPS showed that was 5.6 miles, but that was after we got to the lake via Hemlock pass. It was amazingly beautiful hike –not simple especially for our senior dog. We stopped at Keekwulee Falls and had a lunch on the rocks, taking in the view of valley below us, of rushing water above and below and around us. After the falls it really starts to climb zigzagging through the talus deposits, creek bed, woods, and wild flower colorful patches. When we got to the lake we were ready to jump because of moonscape beauty of the crystal clear lake, chance to rest and relieve that all three of us made in one piece. It was like a paradise up there! Ark and Dixie jumped in the icy water and I was making friends with guy and his dog. Man was very serious with a dog- every time dog would try to bark at the Dixie- man looking into dogs eyes would say -“Angel, you have to modify your behavior!”. Way back was a little bit a struggle for the Dixie- 11 miles in total would be too much for majority dogs and humans, but chicken jerky , water, and loving support made all that better
