Dad drove me over to Tower Road for my early morning walk. I was feeling pretty spunky. And I got a Ponderosa Sky shot. Look at this Porter paw. My goodness, I sure have the miles on my paws. Dad … Continue reading

George started out his day in 2009 with more examples of flash power. It sure was a lot of gear to haul around on Red Canyon Rim Trail. I didn’t have the nice morning for flash power outside, since it … Continue reading

Darn nice morning to be out on Tower Road. Dad drove me to Tower Road so I didn’t have to run to that spot. I spent a lot of time walking and sniffing and generally doing my bassety thing. I … Continue reading

Hey, hey, a sunrise to capture on this morning. Kinda reminds me of Edgemont, which I think is up that way. I never did show you my new Sturgis Rally patch. See there it is, 2016. I’m a motorcycle riding … Continue reading

It’s always nice to have a clear morning with the moon yet to set. It’s particularly nice when you know you’re going to Miyo for breakfast. Yippee! Miyo! As you can probably guess, I did my best to pig out … Continue reading

Wow oh wow, a 42 megapixel Porter basset! And it’s sharp too. You know at 300dpi it would print at 26.5 by 17.7 inches. That’s what 7953 by 5034 pixels will get you. Of course, with that many pixels ya … Continue reading

I got the multiple flash packs out this morning. I haven’t done that in awhile. I should do it more often. The only problem is that the remote flashes won’t go off if there is too much light. In this … Continue reading

No food or treats this morning since I’m headed to the vet…yuck. Cancer sucks, no doubt about that. Dad tells me that three of his basset hounds, his first wife, and a good friend died of cancer. What’s with that? … Continue reading

I was up early again hoping to catch a sunrise. Too bad it didn’t amount to much. I did get up close to the Gayfeather about an hour later. Nice to see the sun was coming out. I had quite … Continue reading

How many hamburgers can a Porter basset eat? You can bet that was my main question as I awoke to the rising sun. You can also bet that I can eat a lot more hamburgers than mom and dad are … Continue reading

Not a bad morning to be out and about. Monday, so Mom’s back at work, so dad and I did our morning routines, though I don’t have to do the running anymore. I’m still up for Prairie Dog hunting despite … Continue reading

I hung out on Porter’s Perch for some sun warmth early in the morning. Feels good. I didn’t stay too long since mom wanted to take me to Miyo for breakfast. I couldn’t turn that down! Barking of food, dad … Continue reading

This time of year the wildflowers are sparse. But there is Gayfeather, not much but some. After a Burger King breakfast mom took me to PetSmart so I could pick out whatever I wanted (okay, she didn’t let me get … Continue reading

I’m all depressed. Sigh. Dad always said that my nose would get me in trouble, like porcupine quills stuck in it or skunk spray shot up it or a few mountain lion scratches. But that’s the way I am. Dad … Continue reading

Dad and I got up to take our Tower Road run under a cloudy sky this morning. The sun did come out mid-morning, so I certainly took advantage of that. The day time temperature here in Castle Rock is so … Continue reading

Dad and I took one last run at the Edgemont airport before hightailing it out of town. I always get depressed leaving Edgemont. Of course, in Castle Rock there’s Burger King, Smash Burger, and, and, and…Duke’s! Here comes mom now! … Continue reading

It’s a go for the motorcycle ride to get my 2016 Sturgis Patch! Despite the heat (104 for a high today), dad and I knew that the morning would be good riding. Just before Hill City, Roadpics.com snapped this picture … Continue reading

Doesn’t look like it’s going to be a good day for getting on the motorcycle. Yup, with the chance of thunderstorms I didn’t pick up my Sturgis 2016 patch for my jacket. But, the Olympics are on! I’ll show’em what … Continue reading

Whew! Can you believe this gray morning? I should be out enjoying Sturgis Rally 2016. The sky did start to clear around 10:30 so we thought that taking the motorcycle to Prairie Berry for lunch might work. Alas, as we … Continue reading

Dad and I went on a cloudy run this morning. The day was so different from the days we’ve spent here in Edgemont over the last two weeks. It was cloudy with a cold east wind…shiver. Dad and I took … Continue reading

After a good night’s sleep, I was up and ready to go. You know, there are stories about ghosts in the Alex Johnson hotel. Well, I don’t believe in that sort of stuff. What’s that?!!!! Just kidding! After a Burger … Continue reading

I’m on the road again! Yup, dad and I got on my motorcycle for our Sturgis Rally trip. Just before Hill City the motorcycle hit the 50,000 mile tick. Wasn’t real busy at Hill City, but then the Rally is … Continue reading

Pretty sky this morning on our run. But the humidity…yikes, the dew point has been in the upper sixties. That’s just darn nasty. I hope when it’s time to head for Rapid City on the motorcycle, the humidity won’t be … Continue reading

It’s not gonna be quite as hot today. That’s a good way to start out August. This is another good way to start out August. That would be catching a BNSF stack train in the view finder. Dad and I … Continue reading

It rained again this morning. At least the morning started out with a rainbow over the Edgemont standpipe. Dad went for his run in the rain. I stayed home; I get the better end of the deal. When the rain … Continue reading
