Featured Trip: Capilano Pacific

Cap Pacific Hikers with Millie (the leader)

Ralphie and Carol


Ralphie and Millie

Of the eight hikers who met at the Rabbit Lane trailhead, we had one guest and 3 new members on their first hikes. Ralphie, the beagle, who just moved into his forever home, had a non-stop waggy tail until his mom went into the woods. Tail stopped, he stared at where she went and did not stop howling until she returned. Being a beagle, he was leashed the whole time. Millie, on the other hand, was very chill and was off her leash on all the leash-optional trails. Wasn’t long before Ralphie realized he had a new mentor. He needed a little help when it came to drinking out of streams. It was very hot and his mom had a hard time coaxing him to drink, but Millie did a great job showing him. When we got to Cleveland damn, Ralphie hung out happily at the picnic table while Mom took a little break. The water in the reservoir was very low, and the outflow at the dam was very reduced. We stopped at the hatchery and there was some pretty good Coho action. Returned to the trailhead at about 13:30. Millie and Ralphie were the stars today.

Thanks for reading! Happy trails, everyone.
