Trail of the Cedars/Avalanche hike

Time for a lovely walk in the woods!  We really enjoyed the Trail of the Cedars loop, with lots of shade and beautiful tall trees.


A bulbous protrusion:


Alligator tree:


We continued up on the trail toward Avalanche Lake, glad we did!  The creek drops into this neat little gorge, lots of great rock and water shapes:


Even a little rainbow...


John admiring the gorgeous gorge (and, I assume, not contemplating a dip in the water today):


Sometimes (not often) our little camera does a decent job with moving water:


Loving the tall trees:


A curious selfie decision:


Which was here first?


John looking for a rotten tree to push over (not today):


Hollow Bob:


Wow, what a view of Avalanche Lake and the waterfalls coming down from the glacier above!


Thumbs up for this spot:


This calls for some yoga on the logs:


Revenge of the Trees (for trying to push them over, perhaps):


Getting to the root of the matter:


After that it was time for Kathy and Bob to check in at their new digs - a caboose!  How cool is that.


Highly in favor of this lodging option (at Izaak Walton Inn), like a version of a travel trailer except currently less mobile:


Bob has found the reading nook:


Kathy enjoying the reading room:


 View across the tracks to the Inn:


It's a lovely place, a nice option for a couple days near Glacier:


Always fun to see what we'll find next!
