So yesterday we ventured to the ancient lakes/dusty lake trail. Its a 3 mile into dusty lake which is where we went so we could fish. Its mostly desert-like until you drop over a hill and the lake is right before you. You wouldn't expect it to be in the middle of what seems like a waste land. The pups had a blast. The way there wasn't as fun as the way back. It was hot and dry, but they kept on truckin. It was worth it when we made it to the lake. They both just laid in the water the whole time we fished and swam. On the way back they had a little skip in their step and even made time to chase grasshoppers and lizards. It was quite the adventure and im so proud of my little corgis making the 6 mile round trip. Here are some pictures I took. Enjoy!

break time!

No fish! when we got there they had a bunch of regulations posted on what bait you could and couldnt use and we didn't have any of the right stuff and we weren't going to hike 3 miles back out and another 3 miles back in, so we just swam and let the dogs rest. It was nice to have our own little personal piece of paradise. There were dragonflies everywhere! and there we so many different colors. Zoey loved chasing them but the grasshoppers were obvious more fun =)

Isn't that a great place?  We west-siders like to go there in winter or early spring, to escape the rain, when heat isn't a problem.  Look out for snakes!

I was out there once with my young daughter, startled to see a rattlesnake -- which turned out to be a harmless garter snake relative in rattlesnake drag -- don't know its name but it had a perfect diamondback pattern.

But there are real rattlesnakes too.

Note to non-Washingtonians:  the west side of the Cascades gets all the rain; the east side, Columbia Plateau, is arid and usually clear, totally different.  Those cliffs are the Columbia basalt flows, a geologic feature nearly unique in the world.  I think the lakes are a consequence of the Missoula Floods during the ice age damming these little tributaries of the Columbia river.
