Hard Snow

Lots of dry powder, then it warmed up, rained and now lots of hard snow. The dogs love it, us skiers not so much. But who cares about us when the dogs are having so much fun, eh?

January Rockstar

I produce a yearly calendar of the dogs and the photo for January is Oreo sporting sparkling snow chrystals on a sunny day!

Remember Cinder

Cinder was a malamute we adopted many years ago from the Lewis and Clark Humane Society in Helena Montana. There was a 160 malamute seizure in Montana from a breeder who had that many dogs and had no help taking care of them. 160 malamutes, 18 pregnant females, and 80 of the dogs were classified as emaciated meaning no fat tissue and loss of muscle. She was pretty shy and a fear biter but not really bad on the biting. She ended up with us and grew out of her shell becoming one of the sweetest dogs I've ever lived with. I ran into these pictures of her and thought I would post them. They are from a ski trip into the foothills of the Alaska Range. She is long gone now but great dog.

Mr. Oreo

Oreo on one of our recent hikes. A cool spring has made temperatures to Oreo's liking with lots of snow pockets around and oodles of it up high.

Its been a cold April. Here and there snow falls and then melts off. Yesterday we had gotten 4 inches so I went out hiking with the dogs who love the stuff. So lucky to have an extra month of snow for the snow dogs.

Desert Time!

Its that time of year to visit the desert. Not too hot, not too much snow and no rattlesnakes. Easy hiking in the sage.
