Morning Hike To The Towsley Narrows

This morning I wanted to take my dog Hiker out for a walk. Originally I was going to take her over to Placerita Canyon to hike but got to thinking how muddy the trail would be from out last rain storm. Most of the trail is in the shadows of the canyon walls so it stays wet and muddy longer, plus we'd have to cross the stream several times and Hiker would have gotten muddy doing that. So I decided to take her to Towsley Canyon again because the trail there is mostly out in the open and in the sun. As usual the parking lot was full. We started up the road toward the trail that leads to The Narrows. As you can see it was a beautiful morning.

I noticed Hiker was limping so I checked out her paws and there was s sticker in one of her front paws. That was the first time she's gotten a sticker but once I took it out, she was fine. So we headed farther up the trail.

There was some water in the stream this time, not like the last time when we hiked here and it was pretty dry. When we've had a really wet winter, this canyon is covered with wildflowers, but so far this year I have only seen a couple of Blue Lupine bushes.

We hiked into The Narrows where we stopped to rest for a little while and enjoyed the sound of the water rushing over the rocks.

Then we headed back on down the trail. We did a total of 3.55 miles this morning. Good hike.
