The south side of Castle was covered in wildflowers and had views aplenty. The north side was still ensconced in snow fields. Where bare earth did emerge, there was little in the way of vegetation, and tiny streams braided the landscape allowing doggie drinks all day.
Another beautiful day in the mountains. Dogs and Truckee Girls alike are thoroughly worn out.
