Today we ran into this beautiful Red Coon Hound. From a distance I thought it was a Vizsla, but he had longer ears and a dark nose and eyes. I love hounds, but I rarely see them in Marin. I took this from my blackberry, so it's not very clear. It was in the 70's on our hike this morning and Remo found the one and only water hole. He likes to cool off when it's warm.

This morning we headed out to the Alta Trailhead in the Headlands, but it didn't last long. The dogs usually hit the trail running with their tails wagging straight up in the air, but not this morning. After about 5 minutes into the hike Turbie stood between my legs with her tail down. She then headed back to the truck with her tail down. She's a smart dog with a very keen nose, much more than Remo. I think she sensed danger and I didn't want to stick around and find out. There are a lot of coyotes in this area or there's always an occasional mountain lion siting. The dogs know best, so we left.
Next stop was the Corte Madera Wetlands and it was wet. All that rain made ponds in the areas we use to walk through...it was deep enough in some places for them to swim. Unbelievable all the rain we got in the past few weeks. I had a hard time find high ground for walking, but the dogs had a great time.
