Tomichi Creek runs at the bottom of our street, separating the Hartmans Rock recreation from the Dos Rio Golf course.
As we crossed the bridge we spied this marmot enjoying a bit of sunshine on one of the few remaining patches of snow.
The path up the hill was well traveled and easy to follow.
Many covered with bright orange lichen
They ranged from yellow to orange to a subtle red.
The rocks at the top were piled into interesting formations.
We watch the older rider take a fall near the top of the path, but he stopped by us, unhurt and with a smile on his face
We began our walk back down , me as usual trailing behind with my camera. I seem to have more photo of my husbands rear over the years than I do of his face.
But he did turn at least look back when I called.
