Yup, one of those brutal runs this morning, cold, wind, clouds. Blah. The wind kept up all day, so dad and I took it easy. We did manage to get hints of sun like out at the Cottonwood Bluffs. Dog … Continue reading

We got a lot more sun than expected today. That was nice! Bit nippy in the morning, however. You get around those snow drifts and it’s like being in an open chest freezer. A basset has got to stay warm. … Continue reading

Dog oh dog, did this day come out so much better than the forecast. We got to run with the rising sun, a cushion of fluffy snow helping the paws. I stopped at the Black Hills National Forest boundary to … Continue reading

A winter’s day, no other way to bark about it. I was in an upbeat mood at the start of our hike on Red Canyon Rim Trail. Snow baths are always fun. Letting all the wild critters know that Porter … Continue reading

I would never had guessed this photo could happen today. And I gave the sun a big thanks for making a special effort today. You see, during our jog it was cloudy and even started to sprinkle. It rained as … Continue reading

You got to love a winter morning like this. Grand! Isn’t it? I was so happy that I sang with joy. The afternoon was more computer work for dad. I took the time to try out DXO Pro 8 with … Continue reading

Pretty darn nice jog this morning. The sun was up, the snow down at the Cottonwood Bluffs. There still are some huge drifts that will take along time to melt, like this one on Fort Igloo Road. I got to … Continue reading

Well, a basset has got to love this photo! A Dairy Queen double cheeseburger headed my way, a beautiful Ponderosa Sky, and 55 degree temperature on Mathias Peak. I was in heaven. I’ll bark you that I wasn’t all that … Continue reading

Bark about a pathetic, gray day. A damp wind blew out of the southeast for most of the day. Outside using flash was the only way to get some color. And a basset has to keep moving to stay warm. … Continue reading

Those snow drifts! Dog oh dog, they can be tough to negotiate. Just ask George in 2008. Just ask me in 2013. We had some moments of Ponderosa Sky today. But high clouds usually bleached the sky for much of … Continue reading

Ouch! Another one of those mornings where I thought we would have a gloomy day. We ran on Elbow Canyon Road and Robinson Flats with only a few hints of sun. The afternoon turned out differently. Love it! I got … Continue reading

Considering the forecast and the little hint of sun in the morning, I kinda thought it was going to be a dreary day. Our run on Robinson Flats and Elbow Canyon was pretty dreary. I suggested to dad that we … Continue reading

A break from those cold temperatures on this day, plus we had a Ponderosa Sky in the morning. I took out the Sony DSC-R1 and NEX-7 on our hike to Summit Tree Camp. Ponderosa Sky anyone? There’s still that snow … Continue reading

Another cloudy day with snow this evening. We’ve got enough snow I’ll woof to you. We did get some sun as I had to tangle with some drifts. Did I bark that we have enough snow, so enough already. I … Continue reading

And yet another frigid morning (-11). At least the jogging is easy on the runway, since all the snow blew off of it. Five years ago George was checking things out at Summit Tree Camp on a beautiful January day. … Continue reading

Ya, another day of winter. You know, clouds, snow, wind, cold. Because of all the snow dad and I didn’t dare leave town. Look at the drift in the backyard. Just walking down to the railroad yard was enough to … Continue reading

Bark about a cloudy day. We got to see early morning light and late evening light, all in golds, with gray in between. The run on Windsong Rise and Circle Viewpoint was pretty darn good. Gotta like the gold grass … Continue reading

Do you mind if I start out with another photo of me against the golden grass? It’s pretty pleasing, I think. Plenty of sun today unless you stayed in Edgemont, which dad and I did not. Ponderosa Sky! Bring it … Continue reading

Warmest run we’ve had in ten days. Not that it was warm, but seeing 23 degrees on the thermometer sure is more than what we’ve seen lately. Dull sky for most of the day. Dad and I were lucky enough … Continue reading
