Another Road Trip, Old Mackenzie Hwy

We went on the old Mackenzie Hwy. on Aug 16th. First day it was open this summer. It usually opens in May or June. Stopped at a little lake/campground on the east side of the summit. Very pretty, I thought I would take a picture, so walked to the end of the lake, through some grass. Boy, did I stir-up some mesquitos, fastest I have moved in a long time that was not at a run. By the time I got in the car I had 7 bites. Decided we would just go on to the Dee Wright Observatory. Here are some pictures. Some inside, looking out square holes or windows, at the surrounding mountains and a few pictures from the outside.

Daughters cat sneaking up on rabbit.

My daughters cat was trying to sneak up on a rabbit in our sideyard. She was doing good till I decided to take pictures and the dogs heard me go on the deck. The pic with her looking towards the camera was when she gave up with a disgusted look. You can tell in the pic that she got close.
