Harry And Charlie Wag The Wissahickon: Hike Two




Our second hike was a full family outing, with Olivia and Michael joining us.  If you look at the tree on the right, you'll see our starting point was the lavender trail.  This is a very popular trail with dog owners.




Charlie had a swim, but Harry wouldn't go in the cold water.




Our destination was a trail's northern end, accessed by a bridge along a busy road. Harry and Charlie posed for me to mark our arrival, before we turned back.


It's good to know there's a spot for lost items such as keys and dog tags.  Maybe my missing earring from our last hike is hanging somewhere.
