Trail 6d – Slough View

All photos taken on September 5, 2022.

Our brief sortie up the Water Tower Trail the other day piqued our interest. We had seen all the signs for Trail 6d and we knew what lay over the hill toward Cottonwood Slough.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. We had been along the bottom trail before, but never came from Water Tower. The black lump gave us a start for a moment. We were glad when we did not see any motion. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan

  1. That did indeed look like a bear! This is the trail we had to deviate off when there was a momma and cub ahead. So we didn’t get to the end point at the lake like you did. Pyramid Mountain has a cool face with the colours on it. Bernie

    1. Bears definitely live in the area, especially after we saw a cub wander through the resort. Deviation is better than meeting a momma and cub for sure. Pyramid Mountain is always a great view. Thanks for reading Bernie. Have a wonderful weekend. Allan
