Mom and I, and Mrs Duckie. I was curious but never went too close.
Dad and I usually cheered mom on from the comfy back seat of the kayak while she paddled.
As you can see, we were ready to assist with paddling at any moment :)
Back in the waters. The lake is quite warm, and there are lots of boaters (non-motorized) and swimmers all day long. Mom liked to wear her life preserver while swimming :)
One of the neat mtn bike trails mom and dad explored.
An eve view from Inspiration Point above Hume Lake.
Mom doing an 'ahhhhhhhh!' at Inspiration Point.
Another ride....up to Buck's Rock Fire Lookout. Can you see it to the left there? Looked like a hobit house from the approach.
How neat is that!?
Buck's Rock is an active fire lookout and sits just above 8,500ft.
Big thunder heads and a view north towards Kings Canyon from some of the pillar formations on Buck's Rock.
Mom and dad spent quite a bit of time at the fire lookout, learning how they track and pinpoint fires. There is a little kitchen area, bed and lots of tracking devices and logs in the lookout.
Dad on his way up the many many stairs.....he had bike shoes on!
Beautiful blooms in the high country.
Back to our lake paddling...I mean relaxing :)
I was so relaxed, didn't even notice the many duckies floating behind us.
Another lovely late day at Hume.
I wasn't ready to leave this place. We had a wonderful time! I could never get tired of all my swimmings, and jogs around the lake with mom, exploring and campsite hang time.
If I couldn't get the ball away from dad, I just went for the ball WITH the thrower!
One of our favorite spots to paddle to and swim from.
Our last day! We played all day, then waited for the temps to cool before heading home, about 5 hours drive. Mom had some good snacks there....and we were allowing the boating stuff dry out before packing it all up.
Until next time Hume Lake!
Have a nice weekend pals :)
