With only a morning available in Creston, our choices of where to cache and see the area were limited. Ali chose very well with a stop at the Creston Valley Wildlife area. It offered a nice loop hike including at a place designated as Balancing Rock. Our available time did not allow us to complete the entire loop, but it did give us a chance to take in the views and wildflowers up to Hanging Rock and back. Ali signs the trail register at the start of the Balancing Rock Trail kowboyk. The cemetery was right at the border with the rear line of the cemetery along the border. Besides finding a well done tribute to a cacher who has passed, we were able to visit a unique border benchmark at the edge of the cemetery. I was also able to make my third visit to BC. ;)

We never really thought about bringing home an aussie. Gwen came to us from a friend who raised show aussies. She was a "companion" dog meaning there was some reason she couldn't be shown. To us she was a champion in our hearts from day one.
Gwen and Toli on the Trail
The days together are amazing, but it never lessens the pain at the end... Bye-bye my little ducky. I will forever miss you Gwenabelle.
