Hiking with Rudy

My last hike along the base of Mt. Eldon with Rudy as my guide, and the day before the forest was closed to all traffic, on foot and otherwise, due to the extreme dry conditions and danger of fires. It was a glorious, sunny day as we explored the giant boulders at the base of the mountain along the dry stream bed.

I don’t recall the proper name of the ‘alligator’ tree, but the nick name works for me

And Rudy leads me back home, in case I don’t recognize the pipeline trail

Here’s Randy with Rosebud, their African Grey parrot. They are great pals, they even dress alike (sort of)
