Breath and strength in my body to climb and row, intellect and curiosity in my mind to think and wonder, joy and gentleness in my soul to feel and live; my cup of gratitude is overflowing.
My pup Picacho, a 1y/o schnauzer, and I loved Snoquera Falls! It was his first time hitting the trail and though he has quite a bit to learn about trail etiquette (sorry about all the barks, folks), he joyfully handled the ~5 mile trek.
We parked at the trailhead, started out with the cool walkways on the Moss Lake Loop, and then headed up to Snoquera Falls. The water was calm enough underneath the falls for us to cross and continue forward on the loop. The water wasn't low enough for pup to wade through, so I carried him.
We tried to reach the suspension bridge that crosses White River across the highway from the trailhead, but despite the pink ribbon markers, the trail was still unnavigable and washed out. Maybe we'll catch it next fall!

Camped at Fairholme and pushed out into Lake Crescent early in the morning on calm water. The clarity of this water is dazzling. A fellow paddler informed us that lifejackets are required here, so keep that tip in mind!
A steep hike up Mount Storm King (#49 - trailhead access near Marymere Falls Nature Trail), later in the afternoon gave a deeper appreciation for the lake's blue tones.
