Rob, Robert and I did a little hiking and trail maintenance on the Dickey Creek trail up to the creek crossing.  The weather was great and the trail wasn't crowded at all.  We met a solo backpacker headed out. I think he may have been camped at the creek ford.  There were a couple of other folks we saw at the trail head, but we didn't run into them after that.  They said they had planned on the Pansy Lake trail, but there was still too much snow up that way.  We saw a few little patches of snow that were only a few square feet in area.

Small creek the trail crosses:

The tributary just above the creek ford:

Before and after a little TLC:

We stopped at the ford for lunch and this was our turn around point. It wasn't too difficult to cross the creek on the log:https://www.trailadvocate.org/wp-content/forum-image-uploads/kirk/2017/05/20170520_140222_resized.jpg

It's a good thing Ollie is good at walking the log.  I wonder what he would have done if he had to get wet crossing the creek since he doesn't seem to like getting wet?

We're you more concerned about Ollie or Kirk falling off the log! Lol jk

That creeks looks messy! Great fish habitat tho. Without a log, that ford looks dicey. 

Cool outing.
