Isn't fall wonderfull?
It was a glorious fall day today so my dog Daisy and I headed up Millcreek Canyon for a hike. Here are some shots from the Elbow Fork trail that heads towards Lambs Canyon. It was one of those days where it was hard to decide when to turn around... when the water bottle was near gone, the camera battery dead or the dog looked thirsty or tired. To be honest, Daisy loves to hike with me, but doesn't understand why we always hike up and up, when all the good action is at the bottom where she can frolic in the creek. We eventually found ourselfs atop a rocky knob with great views across Millcreek Canyon to the south and of Mt. Aire to the northwest. The trail headed down from there so it seemed like the "end" so we turned around and headed back. I'm guessing the high point was a mile and half or so up the trail. I do mean up! A Millcreek hike is always great exercise as it's up, up, up, then down, down down. A little work but wonderful scenery every step. The aspens and scub oaks were gorgeous today!
