Miranda took me for a walk

This is a loop that I will do occasionally. Today it was rainy so I didn’t really feel like going out but knew that I should take a walk. Miranda misses me during the week when work prevents me from playing so come weekends, regardless of weather, I try to go see my girl.
Parking for this one is at a gate on Summerland Rd (N48 39.028 W122 23.252). Part of this hike, from the road up to where I split off on a orv’ish trail at N48 39.014 W122 24.107, is on the PNT (Pacific Northwest Trail). This walk is pretty straight forward, going up on a graveled road to a somewhat wet trail then back to a graveled road that takes us back to the car.
A short way up the road from the car we encountered a deer just off the road. This deer stood so still for at least five minutes that Miranda didn’t even know it was there.
Everything is so wet right now, I am getting itchy for spring and the frogs it brings.
