Does this look like a basset wanting to go for his morning jog?

I’ll woof you that I’m no longer a young pup and a run in the summer’s heat doesn’t get me excited; I’d rather stay home. I do the run to please dad. See the things we bassets have to do?!!!!

The run wasn’t too bad, however. And I do enjoy the scents on Airport Road.

Later in the morning we made the trip for a lunch at Prairie Berry Winery. For desert, guess what? Karen loved the bread pudding so much at the Alpine Inn, we went back to the Alpine Inn for our desert. That Karen is not only a generous, beautiful person, but she’s darn smart too.

All in all, it turned out to be a splendid day for a basset not so enthusiastic about how the day started.

Six years ago, it was a motorcycle day for George. Yeah, I agree with George that Sylvan Lake is one of the best places in the world.

Another day to hit the road with the motorcycle.

This time we went to Hill City so I could visit my friends there.

I’ll woof to you now that lunch at the Alpine Inn is the best! Yup, that’s where we ate lunch. Karen and I agree that the Alpine Inn’s bread pudding can’t be beat.

You know, there isn’t a better place for motorcycle riding than the Black Hills.

In the evening I managed to snap some shots of those Edgemont trains.

This is the life!

Have I woofed before that the Black Hills is a great place to go hiking? Okay, I’ll admit it can get kinda hot hiking in the summer, just ask George in 2008.

I was pretty pumped on our jog this morning, cuz dad told me that we would head for Sylvan Lake on the motorcycle.

And how about this?

We stopped by Deb and Jim’s Frontier Photo on are way to Sylvan Lake for a special shot of Karen, dad, and me. Dog oh dog, I do look good on a motorcycle! And isn’t Karen beautiful?!!!!

This is it! Summer motorcycle riding at it’s best!

I worked up quite an appetite chasing minnows.

I’ll let you know that I did catch two of those minnows, but that’s hardly enough grub for a Porter Basset, so I was darn glad to share a buffalo burger and hamburger with dad and Karen as we enjoyed the fine weather at Sylvan Lake.

It sure was great to be out on the motorcycle!!!!

George had a wonderful early morning hike on Red Canyon Rim Trail on this day in 2009.

He was so looking forward to Sturgis!

Yup, woofingly busy day for this Porter Basset. It started out with a nice jog up to the airport.

We left in the morning for a ride to Rapid City. We took the slow route through Wind Cave and Custer State Park. It was darn nice, I’ll bark you.

Too bad the Jeep got a little lost along the way. Don’t get me wrong, we knew where we were going, but the Jeep didn’t. While traveling east on SD36 to SD79 the Jeep showed us heading southeast to the Cheyenne River.

We turned north onto SD79, while the Jeep turned south right smack in the middle of the Cheyenne River east of Fairburn!

I’ll woof you right now that going 70mph down the Cheyenne River would be even too much for a Jeep. Yeah, it’s a silly vehicle sometimes…don’t trust the GPS on the thing.

Once we got to Rapid City we stopped by the Native American Arts Festival…

and got lunch at Ciao.

Definitely cool that a Rapid City, Pierre and Eastern train rolled through town during my visit.

Dad and I chilled downtown while Karen went into Prairie’s Edge (yes, she did buy some cool things).

My ears really perked up when we stopped at the Wine Cellar to make a 5:30pm reservation for three. This gave us enough time to hop on out to the Black Hills Harley Davidson dealer, where I got to see a bunch of my Sturgis friends. Eating at the Wine Cellar couldn’t be beat! It was the perfect way to finish our visit to Rapid City. But, I’ll woof you that the perfect way to end our visit for Karen was buying two gorgeous lamps at Reflections; they are stunning.

We finally headed home come evening, traveling down SD79. The ride gave me time to reflect on George’s beautiful sunrise in 2009.

But my day of wonder wasn’t over yet! Near Buffalo Gap we stopped to watch a spectacular sunset! Hang on to you paws cause I took a lot of photos.

Bark about a great morning for a jog on Basset Back Ridge!

You can bet I enjoyed every minute, including stopping for wildflowers.

Kinda amazing to see Goatsbeard still blooming this time of year.

I got to see my buddy Gene at the library today, which always makes for a good day. Even better is that Karen went officially on vacation at 5pm. That’s her escaping from the work pasture and into the greener grass on the other side.

Okay, I’ll admit that Karen was trying to get photos of the thunderstorms straying to the south of Edgemont in the evening; hence the reason for jumping the fence.

Now that Karen is off work, I’m so looking forward to tomorrow!

George and his sunsets!!! Always the best!!!

Yeah, I have to post this one of George on this day in 2009.

I’ll keep posting it in coming years too, since it is one of dad’s top five favorite George photos.

Pretty sweet, don’t ya think?

Dad and I started out the day with another run at the airport. There was plenty of sun, so dad and I hopped in the car for shots of wildflowers along Elbow Canyon Road.

Gotta love the wildflowers!

We also took out the motorcycle. It was darn nice weather for that.

It was time to do a little maintenance on the motorcycle, so I got the tools out in the afternoon to change the spark plugs and clean the fuel lines.
Busy day…and darn well nice too.

July 15, 2015

Did I woof how photogenic George could be?

That would be “Two for the Sun” on this day in 2009.

Dad will tell you that I can be pretty darn photogenic too.

That would be “Porter’s Perdee Purple Prairie Flowers” on this day of July 15, 2015.

Dad and I had to run at the airport because of rain the night before making the grass very damp indeed.

We had plenty of clouds in the morning, so I tried out the Sony NEX-7 with three Canon flashes.

I dunno, it doesn’t make for a great combination with this much daylight. Plus, the Canon flashes don’t seem to fire as they should. I need to try them out in the early morning light like in George’s photo above.

Dad and I went back out to the Purple Prairie Clover when the sun came out. Much different color this time.

In the evening we had pizza with Agnes and Gene. Now that’s as good as it gets!

July 14, 2015

Dad and I got a jog in on Basset Back Ridge.

It was an early morning of sun and clouds, but the view couldn’t be beat!

Kinda amazing that some Spiderwort is still blooming on Basset Back Ridge.

I guess it’s because of all the rain this year.

Of course, we all know how well the Prairie Coneflowers are doing. Right?

In the afternoon dad and I went train hunting by the theater. It was rather hot out. Can’t complain about the results, however.

In the evening we took a ride up Elbow Canyon Road with Karen. The thunderstorms were marching through Custer and looked quite impressive.

Too bad the Sweet Clover has lost it’s brilliance.

Bark about brilliance! Who can deny that George was the most photogenic guy at his best on this day in 2007?

No one can!

It’s great to be running on Basset Back Ridge again!!!!

It’s a changed world now days on Basset Back Ridge and in Basset Bottom Gulch.

There used to be green Ponderosa trees behind me, but the Coal Canyon fire changed that, and now the burned trees have toppled over leaving a lot of clear space. Kinda weird to see so far from this spot.

Later on dad and I went looking for Edgemont train action, which we found at Igloo Bridge.

And in Edgemont.

How about this old CSX SD40-2?

Cool that I got a photo of that one on my first day back in Edgemont.

In the evening Karen and I took dad to Naked Winery in Custer.

We went inside with some great burgers from Black Hills Burgers and Buns. Dad and Karen got some good wine, and I got to enjoy the feast with them. Naked Winery can’t be beat for they’re hospitality to basset hounds.

Barking of basset hounds, how about George in 2006?

Quite the basset hound!!!!

And like me, he had a great day photographing trains.

July 12, 2015

Dad and I were up and out real early to catch some train action in Cheyenne. I waited on the UP mainline.

It’s a constant parade of trains here.

Even the BNSF gets in on the action with their old C&S line running behind the Motel6.

Back at the Motel6 Karen was ready to go for a trip into Cheyenne’s downtown.

Darn nice day to wander around Cheyenne.

And we had a McD’s breakfast at the park right in front of Big Boy 4004.

We finally did leave Cheyenne to continue our journey to Edgemont, but not before I took some shots of the UP yards in Cheyenne.

Cheyenne is one of the best spots for train action.

We got into Edgemont early in afternoon. It’s great to be in Edgemont! Karen took me over to see Gene and Agnes, but I’ll admit that I was a tired pooch and the bed was calling me early in the evening.

George got some train action in at Igloo Bridge on this day in 2007.

Then he hopped on the motorcycle for a ride to Sylvan Lake for a swim and cool down after a busy morning.

July 11, 2015

Nice morning for a quick run on Tower Road to stop and sniff the wildflowers.

Yup, the Indian Paintbrush is still blooming.

As the clouds moved in later in the afternoon, we decided to head for Edgemont a day early. The cool thing about leaving early is that we stayed in Cheyenne at the Motel6 near the railroad tracks. When we got to the motel a storm was just passing through, but it did make for some nice lighting just as BNSF train rumbled by our door.

And I can’t complain about the sunset either.

Can’t complain about the Arby’s dinner either.
Tomorrow, on to Edgemont!

George was traveling on this day in 2008. How hot was it at Carleton College, George?

“Woofing hot!!!!!!!!!!!”

Well, how about this? Finally a day with more sun than clouds!

We took advantage of it for a trip into Denver.

I would like to woof you that I got some great food at the Cheesecake Factory, but it wasn’t the case. Yup, suddenly they decided that I wasn’t worthy of them to sit at the outside seating. Stupid people! Dad and I did a lot of walking around, and I did get plenty of attention from people who appreciate the FINER things in life. But still, some cheesecake would have been nice.

George and his sunsets of 2007.

It’s was a spectacularly beautiful time.

July 09, 2015

Hey, finally some sun today. I took advantage of what sun did come my way by checking out the wildflowers off of Tower Road.

It’s rained everyday since we got back, but I’ll admit the Lilies looked darn nice with the water droplets on them.

And I’ll woof again that George sure knew how to pose for the camera.

Bark about looking darn nice on Red Canyon Rim trail in 2009! That would be George!

Yet another gray day in Castle Rock.

Does this place ever have a sunny day?

And Karen gone too! I needed a bit of cheer! Dad was kind enough to take me to Burger King for a breakfast.

That helped, but what really made my day was picking Karen up at the airport. She’s home!!!! Aarrrhooo-oo!!!

Dog oh dog, that George sure new how to pose for the camera.

Another pretty blah day in Castle Rock. I did get out for a bit of hunting of these rascally fellows.

Alas, I didn’t catch one. I need to rethink my strategies.

I was having a good time until Karen left for Dallas of all places. Dad and I drove her to the airport, and then, poof, she was gone. Depression sank in, I’ll woof you.

Maybe if I had been out with the wildflowers on Red Canyon Rim Trail like George was in 2009, I might have felt better.

Maybe if I had seen a nice sunset like George in the evening, I might have felt better.

Bark about a dreary, gray day in Castle Rock. At least the Trumpet flowers looked nice on our jog.

It managed to rain all day. Some welcome back to Castle Rock…blah.

George had a pretty good day with a hike around Mathias Peak on this day in 2008.

As you can see the morning was pretty toasty, and George was glad to get back to the car for a big drink of water. LC and Willow went with on that morning. A good time was had by all.

After one last run at the airport…

it was time to say goodbye to Edgemont.

We drove through some storms once we got to Cheyenne and on down to Castle Rock. I was pooped out from the drive, I’ll woof you. Yup, Porter Basset will sleep well tonight.

Too bad we didn’t have the magnificent sunset George had in 2007.

That’s a magnificent basset too!

Last day in Edgemont for this trip…sniff.

It’s been a great week, no doubt about that. I sure had a good time seeing Agnes and Gene and my friends downtown Edgemont. Okay, there was that tremendous thunderstorm Wednesday evening, but I got over it.

I got on the motorcycle for a 4th of July ride.

I went through Wind Cave National Park and got a Dairy Queen sundae in Hot Springs. My kinda of ride!

Don’t forget to view my video of me riding on this trip to Edgemont.
Porter’s 2015 Motorcycle Ride

Where else do you see a basset hound riding a motorcycle?

We spent one last evening at the Wild Horse Sanctuary. Sierra got some special attention from dad. We watched the sun go down on this trip.

Tomorrow, it’s back to Castle Rock.

Barking of motorcycles and basset hounds. No one rode a motorcycle better than George!

Well, okay, except for me :-)

We got going early for trip to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary today. It was hazy from wildfires in Washington and Canada.

But it wasn’t so darn blasted hot.

Karen had a good time with her Spanish Mustangs.

I had a good time sniffing around the Prairie Coneflowers and generally causing trouble.

I did get a nice shot of Honey and Buckshot by the last of the Penstemon.

In the evening we made another trip up Elbow Canyon Road, where Karen and I looked for worthy subjects for our cameras.

And here’s a worthy subject now. Me!

It was great that Karen finally had a day off from work. Sure made my day better!

Okay, back to 2006 and another photo of George on his run on Basset Back Ridge.

Dad put four of those running photos together to make one big photo of George at his best on Basset Back Ridge.

Great memories!

Another run at the airport this morning.

Really, the airport needs to be retired and renamed the Edgemont Dog Park.

Dad and I went on a mission to photograph the Coneflowers on Elbow Canyon Road.

There’s one spot that can’t be beat and there sure as heck are a lot of them. Put them against a pretty blue sky and you can’t deny their beauty.

After Karen got out of work, we again headed up Elbow Canyon Road, where the Sweet Clover still blooms intensely.

We continued on our way to the Red Cliffs on Pilger Mountain Road. Very nice day for it!

Then we headed back on Red Canyon Road, where I snapped this picture of Red Canyon Creek all muddy with that reddish orange sand.

It was a darn pretty drive. Karen got some great photos, and I got to wander and sniff around. Quite excellent.

George’s day in 2006 was one of resting after the heat of running on Basset Back Ridge.

Even after he snapped a photo of the engines on this train, he went back to his napping.

I could use a few winks myself.

Before I do, I’m going to end this post with a big splash! (In Red Canyon Creek that is.)

Dad and I wandered up Elbow Canyon Road later in the morning today, looking for Prairie Coneflowers.

We found them alright, and they were looking darn good I’ll woof you.

Put a basset in with them and you’ve got a very fine photo indeed.

Before going home we checked on the train action in Edgemont.

It’s so nice to be in a place with a lot of trains!

Lulu went to the car vet. We’re hoping her problem of losing power can be resolved.

In the evening we went to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, where we caught a not too shabby sunset.

Too bad the food we picked up at Wooley’s in Hot Springs wasn’t nearly as good as the sunset.

I’ve kinda had a theme lately of George’s 2006 runs on Basset Back Ridge.

Bark about good times, right George?

An early morning jog for me at the airport. Notice the new lights.

Yeah, pretty amazing that the Edgemont airport has new lights.

It was a day of sun and clouds over Edgemont.

Plenty of heat too as I wandered around the Sweet Clover in the late morning.

I did get out for a motorcycle ride, so that was a good thing.

Did I look as hot as George did in 2006?

Well, no, since I didn’t run as far as he did, and his run on Basset Back Ridge was much rougher than my run at the airport.

George had a great run, nonetheless, and then he got in some great train action.

Not a bad morning for a run at the airport.

Still way too many mosquitoes, but I survived.

We slapped a new battery in the motorcycle and hit the road!

Notice the GoPro camera riding on my back. Yup, it was time to do some video work of Porter Basset riding his motorcycle.

Here goes!
Porter’s 2015 Motorcycle Ride

Did I mention that I’m an awesome basset!!!!!

George was a very awesome basset, no doubt about that!

Yup, even after a hot run on Basset Back Ridge, George was up to task with his nose exploring the ground of Windsong Rise.

This is one of the best things of Edgemont, BNSF Railway in action.

Yup, I’m at Igloo Bridge enjoying the train action.

But it wasn’t just train action today. We made it to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary too, where Montego Bay was looking dashingly hippie like.

The Penstemon was looking darn beautiful there.

But the nerve of those horses! “Hey you, that would be MY water bowl!!!!”

In the evening we made another run up Elbow Canyon Road. Just can’t beat that Sweet Clover.

Sometimes summer evenings can’t be beat!

George couldn’t be beat either on this sunset photo back in 2007.

Dad and I did our early morning run at the airport. Bark about a lot a lot of Sweet Clover!

It’s outrageously beautiful this year around Edgemont. Look at these photos along Elbow Canyon Road in the afternoon.

Magnificent! This is the most Sweet Clover I’ve ever seen. Must have been all that rain. Too bad with all that rain there are enough mosquitoes to carry a basset away.

We had a splendid day with a great lunch at Prairie Berry.

And then I got to see my buddies at Frontier Photo. Emma was looking her usual fetching self.

On the way home we stopped at Circle Viewpoint.

So great to be back in Edgemont!

And don’t forget, Edgemont will always be remembered as the home of Sheriff George!

We left the cloudy skies of Colorado behind and arrived on the High Plains of Edgemont to a beautiful High Plains sky.

I’ll take it!

Not a bad morning to run along Tower Road. The little Roses sure are sweet.

And there are plenty of Sunflowers.

Of course, come the afternoon the thunderboomers started to grow.

Or in this case you can see one had already gotten darn big when I took the previous photo.

We didn’t get much of anything from them, but I was worried about the thunder in the distance.

Tomorrow we’re headed for Edgemont!!!! Arrrhoooo-ooo!!!!

Barking of Edgemont, George was loving his day after a great jog on Basset Back Ridge. Mexican Hats anyone?

Plenty of clouds in the morning and then booming thunder in the afternoon. What’s a basset to do?

Actually the clouds in the morning kept me from getting too hot on our jog. And there was some blue sky headed our way.

But the afternoon and evening were pretty scary for this Porter Basset. I wish I would have had the great weather George had in 2006.

Okay, it was hot and George showed that at the end of his run on Basset Back Ridge, but it turned out to be a great day for enjoying wildflowers and trains in Edgemont.

It’s summer alright, which means it can sure get hot if there are no clouds during our jog. We did have a beautiful blue sky this morning. It was a perfect morning to view some of the latest wildflowers.

“Hey! I look darn handsome in the above photo!”

I’m a classy guy, don’t ya think?

Come the evening and those pesky thunderstorms fired up. They scared me again. Dad and Karen found me hiding in Karen’s bathroom (a safe haven from thunderstorms, I’ll have you know). Thank goodness the storms moved to the east, and Karen brought out a Freddy’s hotdog for me. I was the fearless Porter Basset again.

Bark about fearless, that would be George running along in the early morning of June 23, 2006.

It was a hot run on Basset Back Ridge, but George handled it like it was stroll across the street.

Here’s what I gave dad for Dad’s Day.

Pretty cool, huh?

I’ve heard it said that the best gift to give is one the giver (that would be me) will love too. Heh, heh, yes I do love plonking my body on dad’s Dad’s Day gift.

Another cloudy morning and early afternoon (Colorado, 300 days of sun…well, yeah, if you fly above the clouds :-D, dad and I had a good jog where I got in cozy with the Yucca…

and the Indian Paintbrush.

It would have been nice to have more sun and a pretty sky for these photos. The clouds did make my jog less hot, I will woof that.

Up very early, that would be George, and here he is on Red Canyon Rim Trail.

I don’t know how George managed to look so darn handsome so early in the morning.

I gave dad his dad’s day present. He really liked it! I’m going to leave you in suspense and show it to you tomorrow (keep the readership up on the blog :-)

Dad and I had a short jog under cloudy skies. The Prickly Poppy is still looking good, but a basset has to watch out for those pricklies on it.

After a Burger King breakfast, we wandered into this field of Cowpen Daisies.

Too bad I didn’t have a blue sky with white puffy clouds or a beautiful sunset, cuz these beauties sure would look gorgeous under the right setting.

I’m not complaining, though; they’re still darn beautiful.

George’s day in 2006 was a before 6am breakfast and then onto the jog on Basset Back Ridge. You had to get up pretty darn early with George eager to blast out for a run in the forest.

With all that moisture in the past month and a half and now some heat, the flies and mosquitoes are pretty bad.

Though it is nice to see real honey bees taking care of business.

Cooler today so we made a trip to the Chicago Vienna hotdog place in Denver. Yeah, that got my month drooling, I’ll woof you!

In the evening I tantalized dad with a dad’s day gift that I am going to have him open tomorrow.

“You can’t open it yet, dad!” I woofed to him as I showed him that I would sprint away with his dad’s day gift if he tried to open it before tomorrow morning.

He’ll love this gift!

And he loves this photo of George in 2006.

I do too!

Look at George with his wildflowers on June 19, 2009 along Red Canyon Rim Trail.

I gotta admit that he sure knows how to take a photo!

I tried my best today…

but though I look pretty good, I wasn’t able to best George’s photo. Mind you dad tells me that I have great ones in the past as good as George’s wildflower photos. Maybe tomorrow.

Beautiful day, though the temperature sure was hot. I took advantage of the hot sun by plopping myself down in the cool grass while sunning myself. Sure gets the joints feeling darn good. Karen had a doctor’s appointment. Dad and I took her so we could drive her home after the stupid doctor gave her a right nasty hurt. It was hot for me but dad and I lazed about under a tree in the cool grass as we waited. Easy for dad and me, but not so easy for poor Karen.

It started out sunny so dad and I had a great jog. Naturally I took time to smell the wildflowers, in this case Yucca.

Since it looked like the sun wouldn’t last dad and I got the GoPro camera set before the clouds moved in for a Porter romp.

Looks kinda weird on my back, I’ll woof to you.

But you got to admit the results are pretty bassety cool!

Back in 2007 George was still thinking of the great sunrise as he lazed about in the little sunflowers.

Dad and George were up early (5:15am) on their jog and got to see this beautiful sunrise unfold.

My morning jog was hot but the wildflowers sure were a delight.

Globemallow anyone?

And how about this Prickly Poppy?


The Trumpet flowers are starting to come out in force too.

I wonder how the wildflowers are in Edgemont?
