Walk in the forest on Mt Fromme

This Saturday was the first (relatively) warm and sunny weekend day we have had for some time, so to avoid the inevitable crowds in the park I decided to walk with Charlie on the trails on the side of Mt Fromme - which is the hill that rises up from the end of Princess Avenue, between us and Grouse.

We only completed our usual hour or so round walk as I still haven't managed to find any trail maps and as it's Crown Land and not BC Parks managed, the trails are all natural and there are no direction indicators up there at all. I had an open house to hold during the afternoon and wouldn't have been very popular if I had managed to get lost in the backcountry.

So we had a bit of gratuitious posing

Found a completely moss covered ex-tree

Did a bit more posing on a long since fallen tree

And did more than a bit of stick fetching (he's pretty camouflaged against the red soil & red wood trees)

We also splashed about in the creek, that since we were last there someone has very kindly built a rustic wooden bridge over (it used to be a case of jumping on precariously balanced stones to get across)
