Genoa Bay Hike

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!

Lettin the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin it back in.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't gonna happen anyway.

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!

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