Part 3 of my adventure in the Bridger National Forest is all about STICKS. Did you really think my adventure would be complete with out sticks?
As you can see MOM picked a pretty nice spot among some trees. And where there are trees, there are sticks.
Belle even helped with the saving of the sticks in the water.
Everywhere I looked STICKS!
"I claim this stick in the name of.... well I guess in name of me, Goose.
While Belle was a good sport with the sticks she sometimes had her mind on other.... things. Here she is trying to camouflage herself with the tree branch so the squirrels would not see her. Not only is she beautiful inside and out butt she is smart too.
She was super helpful in finding me sticks. "Hey Gooie what about this stick here? Is this a good one?"
"Oh Belle I think you have found a fine stick."
Oh yes indeed my friends, Bellie Sue found a primo stick. You know it is super good when you can climb inside them.
Oh yea. I am in heaven. My eyes are about to roll back in my head I am loving this so much.
While Belle kept watch over our tent from the squirrel invaders.
I helped myself to this stick. Really it is a twig, but I am not choosy. I'm an equal stick kind of dog.
On Elk Creek I found several that were stuck in the middle of the creek.
This one was not only in the water but hung up on the rocks. No problem, I got it out.
This here was a total tree wreck. Hundreds of fallen sticks all piled up. I slowly began to remove them from the jam up.
Friends sometimes rescuing sticks can get a bit dirty. Butt trust me it is well worth all the mud up to my bellie. I did wonder how MOM would feel about snuggling up to me later that night. Turns out she did not mind at all. Gotta love her... I do.
My friends that was just a few of the sticks in the forest.
You might be thinking that our whole trip was full of nothing butt go, go, go. Butt I will show you tomorrow how we were able to keep going and going, hiking and hiking, fish catching and squirrel chasing. Hope you can join us.
