Warm January day today, though too many clouds. We did get some beautiful Ponderosa Sky at the Gold Rocks. I’ve been thinking how I would conduct tours of the Gold Rocks. I could get up on Porter’s Gold Rock Pedestal … Continue reading

Chilly jog this morning with a nice sky. The hiking was pretty darn good. We went out and about Mathias Peak. The mild winter continues, and there isn’t much snow. George’s 2008 winter jog still had that icy surface with … Continue reading

One of my favorite sounds is the sound of sausage links cooking in the morning after our jog. Are they ready yet?! It’s a good way to get some calories before our morning hike. In the afternoon I was all … Continue reading

Hmm-m, can’t say as though the day looked too promising during our jog, cloudy and snow. Even when we went for a hike at mid morning, the sky was rather dreary with snow still falling. Dad decided we should do … Continue reading

I’m telling ya, sometimes a basset just has to keep an upper stiff lip to cope with the weather around here. It rained (again!) just before dad and I took our jog. That stupid rain made the streets into ice … Continue reading

Some of the day provided plenty of blue sky like when I was at Howling Rock appreciating the view. Yup, Ponderosa Sky at Portrait Rock too. However, I was more worried about my treat allotment than the beautiful sky. Dad … Continue reading
