Fish pedicure.

Crane Point Hammock

The "fish pedicure" is wild! It's about a half-mile hike to get there, but definitely worth it. Put your feet in the pond, and let the fish nibble. 15 seconds was as long as I could stand it. Great place for the pups to run, even in the bird area!

Minnows. A harmless bunch of piranha wannabes.
