We decided to take a hike up Windy Pass one weekend. It would help get us in shape for our planned back-pack into Turquoise Lake. The upper part of the hike is through an area burned in the 1988 Canyon Creek fire. It's a cool place with a lot of rock, and great cairns along the trail. It's a hot, dry hike, but there is water at the top. Indy was happy to find that... In spite of the 100+ degree heat, there were a few small snowfields left.

Indy zipped right along, checking out all the smells and critters along the way. Not bad for a 14 year old dog with artificial knees.
