old homesite at Walnut Creek Park.
I had been there once before, with just Maya, last summer and there are some nice trails. This is also a disk golf course (frisbee) at the park and there was a tournament there this morning. I was near the tail end of it, but picked a route that took me out of their way as much as possible. There were some mountain bikers on the trails too, and a few other hikers, some with dogs and some without.
|The trees have not leafed out yet, so the blooming redbuds|
look like splashes of paint throughout the forest.

|Theo at one of our few rest breaks. This was the only one that|
I actually sat down at, and both dogs joined me.

|This was the most welcome water crossing, coming after a|
long and mostly uphill stretch of trail.
|The harness makes it easy for Theo to pull some extra weight.|
|This old house still stands, but just barely. We walked around|
the outside and discovered a very active bee hive living in one
corner of the house.
