    Wow! It almost looks like you could have raised your noses and touched the sky! So, nobody was afraid of heights?

    Wow, what a lush and green view!

    My dogs never seem to have a huge interest in views. But, I just read a book about a couple and their wolf/husky hybrid who befriended a wolf pack and studied their behavior. They stand on ridges to survey for prey. The “watcher” then rounds up the hunters to chase whatever he/she sees. It’s called “Three among the wolves” and I loved it because it combines dog stories and wolf pack behavior.

    Wow, that’s beautiful! We don’t have views like that in the midwest …sigh. Just a lot of flatness.

    Your pal, Pip

    Woooo fantastic view, look how green it is. I bet there were plenty of smells along that trail too 🙂

    We’ve tried to leave two comments and don’t know if they’ve gotten through because we don’t see them. We totally agree with you that you guys found a Marvelous viewpoint. Grammy would never be able to hike up in a place like that any more, but she sure loves looking at your pictures!

  21. Country Corgi Pups on July 8, 2010 at 6:22 am

    Did our comment go through? It doesn’t look like it did unless you moderate…

  22. Country Corgi Pups on July 8, 2010 at 6:21 am

    THAT is TRULY a WONDERFUL VIEW!!! There is no way Grammy would be able to hike way up there and she wouldn’t get anywhere near that close to a drop off either, but the view IS spectacular!

  23. Kess & Her Mama on July 8, 2010 at 3:15 am

    What a lovely walk. Guess you guys have no fear of heights!

  24. Marvin on July 8, 2010 at 1:31 am

    No wonder you were enjoying such a beautiful view!

    Thank you for sharing. We feel as if we are really with you! ;0D

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
