breakfast, all you can eat pancakes for $4.50. Two pancakes (big ones) and scrambled eggs with three strips of bacon. You can't get that deal anywhere.
We took Honey for her morning walk and made sure she was worn out before leaving her alone at the trailer while we drove into Monroe to do some shopping. No matter how much you plan it you always seem to leave behind something that is critical to the success of your trip. A trip to the Dollar Store and Fred Meyer eliminated all that worry.
We returned to the trailer and spent some time deciding where to put our new gazebo. We leveled the area and went down to the office to get the building permit. All buildings within the complex must be temporary and there are various rules so the park manager must see and approve plans and the final project upon completion. Over the years some people have fudged a bit with the rules but the park is coming back into compliance by making anyone selling their property make the changes that are required by the County Conditional Use Permit.
Day four arrives with a morning breakfast decision to take a hike up to Wallace Falls. We stuffed our backpacks and took off for a nice morning climb. There are two trails up to the falls. One is longer and built on a railroad bed that is an easy walk although it does climb. The other is called the Woody Trail and while it is much shorter it is not road bed, it is a trail, complete with boulders, rocks, stumps and roots sticking out all over the place. It follows the Wallace River up to the lower falls. Here are some pictures of this hike. It was a perfect hiking day with weather in the upper 40"s.

After driving back to Gold Bar I hit the sack with my Kindle and was soon fast asleep to the sound of rain on the roof.
