Doug and family came down to visit Granny Bev for the week of the 4th. We thought we should drop by. Dad hitched a ride with us as we headed down.
There were a couple things we thought we should do in the afternoon on the 4th. We talked up the Rodeo and visiting Piedra falls (short hike involved). Several of us chose the falls hike. We all loaded up in the car, and headed north. After a few miles we started joking about Doug forgetting the fishing gear (Fish On! Warburton), and 'the short cut to the rodeo'. After the directions not being specific enough, we found the trailhead to the falls. 1/2 hike as it appeared the clouds coming in. Turns out most of the 'shortcut' joking was realized when we stopped at the dead end... Debbie expected a rodeo at the end of this drive!
We jumped out and started the hike with significant clouds overhead. As we walked it started to sprinkle..rain...lightning...heading back...no pictures... let's find that route home!
We passed the Sportsman's store for the 4th time (signage would be helpful) on the way home...
Doug brought down quite a feast! A full red salmon and lots of crab legs... We cooked up the salmon and some of the crab legs on the grill and steamed the rest. Quite a feast!
Of course we drove down the street to catch the fireworks!
