River walk - North Fork Nooksack

This sounds rather ominous!

It turned out to be an unexpectedly warm day, and who could resist exploring such lovely scenery?

During attempted stick-retrieval, Stewart demonstrates outstanding amateur cannonball technique while Fergus watches in amazement.

After sinking to the bottom of the swimming hole, Stew manages to bob up and dog-paddle to shore for a good soggy shake-dry.

We drove just under 2 miles past the Glacier ranger station, and parked at the trailhead for Horseshoe Bend, on the North Fork Nooksack river. It's a great hike for any weather, but really stunning on a sunny day. We stopped on the way back to pick up growler (aka a 1/2 gallon 'take out' jug) of tasty, fresh-brewed IPA from the North Fork Brewery . They also have great food in a unique setting, but the dogs were pooped, so we headed home. Another wonderful day in Whatcom County!
