The weather was so perfect that the parking lot was full. I had to go somewhere else to get a hike in.

We always enjoy the dog walks at Nolde! The rangers are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I wish more folks would participate because it is a lovely place to hike. We're looking forward to the First Day dog hike!
