Happy Leap Day! I posted these photos of George on March 1st of last year, but they really are Leap Day photos from 2008. George was at his happy howling best on the Mickelson Trail that day! Gotta love it! … Continue reading

Once again the only sun we saw came briefly at early morning on our jog. Dim light pervaded Ponderosa Thicket, where I spent some time hiding behind trees in hopes of some critter coming along. Sigh, I guess it was … Continue reading

Whew! That howling wind of yesterday evening didn’t greet this morning on our jog, so the jog was nicely done. More snow fell on and around Mathias Peak. The clouds raced by as we trudged through the snow, but no … Continue reading

Dog oh dog, what a gritty, crummy February day; lots of rain, damp cold, and mud, mud, mud…blah. After our jog, I kinda made a nest in the car hoping dad would get the hint that outdoor activities weren’t going … Continue reading

Another walk along Old Hwy 85 under a big sky. Sometimes a basset just has to get out in the wide open spaces to feel free and alive. After our walk we headed over to Igloo Bridge for some train … Continue reading

Deep down in Basset Bottom Gulch you’ll find a very special place: Basset Amphitheater. Getting in and out of Basset Amphitheater is not an easy task, but it’s well worth the effort. The entrance is marked by a tall, stately … Continue reading

Dog oh dog, this is about as much sun as Edgemont got today. That would be our morning jog sun. At Summit Tree Camp the lighting failed to make much of an impact so we brought out the flashes. We … Continue reading

How about this for basset magic?!!! Tada!! Here comes the sun! I think a sunbeam caught early in the morning is the next best thing to having a few treats in celebration afterwards. Wow! Another great day for hiking…just keep’em … Continue reading

A terrific morning for hiking along Indian Paintbrush Trail. We wandered near the edge of the plateau, and, well, you know that feeling of wanting to keep going and explore? I asked dad if perhaps we could descend the south … Continue reading

Quite the day for this Porter basset today. After our jog we had a great hike under a Ponderosa sky around and up to Mathias Peak. Um, I did step on a cactus. Ouch! Dad saved me by pulling the … Continue reading

Cold jog this morning, but mighty fine under a sunny sky. Thought you’d like to see me jogging on my normal path through the airport. Sometimes when it’s cold like this, I really get to hustling. Go Porter, go! Of … Continue reading

A winter day today with snow and clouds. Dad and I hiked Basset Back Ridge and Windsong Rise. On Basset Back Ridge there’s an area of fallen trees that the rabbits love, so I LOVE that area. I’m after one … Continue reading

Dunno what’s the problem. The 70-200mm lens never seems to work well with the T2i. I hooked on the fixed 200mm lens today to see how it focused. Quite nice, thank you: sharp Porter on a creamy background. The problem … Continue reading

What’ca think, does this guy look gloomy under a gloomy winter sky? Well, maybe not, but it most certainly was a gloomy sky all day. On the Mickelson Trail, dad and I could have sung “snow flakes keep falling on … Continue reading

Nice golden morning for a jog. The clouds were moving in, so from Portrait Rock I pointed in the direction of the Gold Rocks and told dad that we should hike to them before the blue sky goes away. It’s … Continue reading

If you look to the south, there’s a huge storm system dumping tons of snow on Colorado, Kansas, and Nebraska today. It brought plenty, plenty clouds to the Edgemont area in the last couple of days, including today. But dad … Continue reading
