|From the parking lot (bottom right) we took the Matheson Lake Loop Trail in a clockwise direction until we reached the Galloping Goose Trail (top left) and followed it back to the cars.|
|First glimpses of the lake.|
|Along the south side of the lake.|
|The first of a few bridges.|
|Lots of ups and downs and some quite narrow|
parts of the trail along this side.
|This old tree looks in pretty|
|Lots of mossy weird shapes -- hence the "wet coast."|
|A mossy, rotting partial tree.|
|Another great viewpoint.|
|An attempt to keep peoples feet dry in wet weather.|
|A real backwoods trail in places.|
|A very old stump with another tree|
growing out of it. Note the cuts for
a sawing platform from the early days
|It pays to watch for tripping hazards.|
|A newer bridge followed by an older one.|
|A few signposts to keep us on|
the right path.
|Tried to get a shot of this guy a few times but trees in the way.|
Finally got him from the far side of the lake with a zoom shot..
|Onto the Galloping Goose Trail at the northwest corner of|
|Some photos of the "My Chosen Cafe" grounds before we|
head back home.
|A close up of the caption on the right hand gate post.|
|The goats appreciate the attention.|
|A neat place to stoop and look about.|
|And a good place for some candid shots.|
That's Brook behind the scenes.
