Genoa Bay Hike

August 26th, 2007, 11:33 AM
Three of us with my 2 dogs and my friend's Scottish Collie hiked up to overlook Genoa Bay yesterday.. and yes, we started from sea-level so it was quite a climb - but as you can see - it was worth it!

The Island on the left (behind the bushes) is the southern tip of Salt Spring Island and yes - looking due east - on a clear day - you could see the mainland...

It is so beautiful out here - I can't imagine how I survived on the prairies for so darn long - and in a city yet!

They were ready for a rest, that's for sure! Amber is recovering from a sore pay - somehow she has injured one toe on her left back leg. The vet told me no exercise for at least 2 days - the hike was on the 3rd day and Amber was like a wild woman out there! No sign of soreness - she is still on her pain/anti-inflammatory meds though but Amber did at least 4 times the distance the rest of us did! Today both dogs were back to normal - ready to rock and roll!

We try to do a really good hike like this one at least once a week - that way the dogs don't get bored by going to same place all the time and we get to see some rather beautiful scenery too!

Gorgeous scenery! Wow! :cloud9:

We don't have vistas like that in hazel's neck of the woods, that's for sure.
