Break Time

One of the great parts of hiking in the mountains is finding a quiet area to take a little break - and just soak in the view.

Kiska approves.

    I approve as well. Gorgeous photograph. Nothing like hiking in woods and then suddenly turning a corner and finding a breath-taking view. Now, if the weather will please just return to normal!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
