Smile, breathe, and go slowly

This morning started on the Boulder bike path.  The same path where we forged through 3 inches of water in the deepest spots last Saturday, is now up to 5 or 6 feet today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Otto was not the least bit intimidated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, the other three were able to convince him that perhaps drier ground was the better option.  Boulder County Sheriff did close the creek to all water activities after all!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From there it was up to Fort Collins and the Poudre River trail–we just wanted a little comparison of water levels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Poudre was plenty high, but we didn’t encounter much overflow water on the trail.  However, a short rainstorm provided plenty moisture for us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But this would be the reason we BOTH prefer the Boulder Creek path…thus far, anyway.

 

However, I certainly cannot end a blog post on that note.

Tir’s bridge crossing attempt #4.  Despite encouragement from Sunny, still no luck.

    Holy cow! Hello rain! Poor little Tir, so nervous! You can tell he wants to try, but is just too scared.

    Wow. We had some really bad flooding this spring too, and the creeks and rivers are still higher than normal, but no longer overflowing.
