Definitely a favorite spot for many dogs!

A year ago the water (level) was much higher, less stagnant and far less gross :( Sheesh, what happened to monsoon season this year? I heard it's going to be a wet winter...maybe that will help.

this is "toofast's tidepool". in hot weather, toofast makes regular trips down to this stream to cool off. as more and more climbers (and their dogs) have visited LDE, toofast's new friends have had fun there, too.

until this spring, the water was flowing and really clean. hopefully marcy's right and the stream will get recharged in the winter wet season.

Judging by last w/e, Toofast makes this trip (AND back up to the parking area) in ALL types of weather! She's in better shape than most dogs 1/2 her age.

She's also done a significant amount of trail work in the form of 'dog-cuts' for areas on the trail that are not so dog-friendly!
