Back to the Trails

One of the great benefits of spring is that we can access our higher elevation trails (many roads are closed in the winter). We love getting into the backcountry and hiking these trails.

back to the trails

It’s spring, so we are back to the trails.

The winter weather can create a lot of havoc on the trails, downed trees, brush, wash-outs. We just consider those to be great fun.

Scrambling over a fallen tree where the park service has cut a notch.

Of course, the humans enjoy the benefit of something called “Tired Sibe.” We are not sure why they are so happy when we can’t even stay awake in the Jeep on the way home.

Me? Tired? Ok, fine, I might need a little nap.

Quick technical note. We moved our email server last Thursday which, unfortunately, caused some issues. We inadvertently stopped emailing about 40 people our notice that a new blog post was up on Friday and Saturday morning. That was fixed and all emails went out on Sunday morning, BUT several people still let us know that they did not get that email on Sunday. We are trying to identify the common trait among those suddenly not getting their email. If you do not get a notice on Monday (April 6), please go to our “Contact Us” page and let us know the email address which should be receiving the email.

Thank you for your patience.

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.
