Mary and I took Parko on an afternoon outing up to the Rimrock Lake area (40 minutes from our house) on Sunday. We stopped at the lake first and let Parko run on the shore there for a bit, but there was a little too much human activity around, so we drove down the road a few minutes and found a quieter spot on the South Fork Tieton River to explore.
We parked at a random spot along the road, then bushwhacked a couple minutes down to the river. Parko romped around the icy water with a little coaxing, but mostly seemed more interested in the adjacent woods smells.
I was vaguely aware of a rock climbing crag in the vicinity and the vagueness became obvious once I noticed the only prominent rock outcrop in view from our river playground (you can see it behind Mary in the top photo on this post). Just a short walk through the woods. Really, really neat spot and I’m excited to come back soon with my climbing gear.
