Default Cherry Springs in the Rain
After going to Home Depot in the rain at lunch, I decided to make a quick trip up Charouleau Gap to Cherry Spring to enjoy this beautiful weather. I packed up in 30 minutes and I was off. Just me, the Rubi and the pups. It was an awesome adventure. Heading up Kiss Rock as water poured down the face of it was a little more difficult than doing it dry, but the Jeep did awesome. Cat-dog and Gidget had a great time playing in the water and with each other. Gidget went swimming in the pond a few times. And every time I would try to load her back up in the Jeep, she go in to the water as if she were thinking, "If I'm in the water, you can't come get me to go back!" Funny pup, I had a secret weapon - a bag of Frito Lays. It worked like magic. She's a smart pup, but I won that round. We made it back safe and sound, just a little wet and muddy. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

Very nice, we like to go look at the waterfalls or pouroffs in our area during or just after a rainstorm too. Nice pics.
