Day 8 Continued… onto Moose Creek Territorial Park for the night


Believe it or not… we finally arrive at our campground destination!

but NO!  We’re not even close to being done for the day… remember?  the sun sets at around 10:30 now!

 

They don’t call it Moose Creek for Nothing….IMG_2378

 

There’s still some exploring to do and what better way to start than discovering more mushrooms…. yes! more mushrooms.

If anyone knows the names of any of these, I’d love to know.  The one below was called a Hawk Wing in a book at the Tombstone Ranger station.   I saw it called something else since then.  d

Hawks Wing I discovered later that these are edible… dang

Strawberries and Cream. Yes, That’s really what they call it…

Yet another dung picture..  It was interesting because it’s the size of a cat poop but obviously most of it’s diet was full of chlorophyl.  Any ideas?

So out of the woods we hiked and into the river channel.

Through out this blog you might notice my predilection for walking through all types of terrain in my sox and sandals.  Although it is rather odd (ok, don’t say it), socks and sandals are the perfect way to travel when one has limited storage space and limited ability to dry articles of clothing.  Wool socks stay warm in the most frigid of water and they dry much more quickly that in insides of a boot.  My favorite socks for doing this are my merlon Icelandics from New Zealand.  Oh so comfy and durable!

I guess you can’t really tell that my socks are on….

 

The poodles had fun getting their feet wet and I had a chance to find some interesting animal prints.  I saw raccoon, beaver

and wolf

Well, all good things must come to an end

But sometimes that end is just the beginning for something even better!!

We finally settle down for a good bone chewing
