3 August ~ 2020

I enjoy staying home and working on the house and yard. Summer goes by fast though, and while it is here I feel drawn to forget all my home projects and spend time in the high country.

Last week the dogs and I backpacked up on a mountain where I have been going for over twenty years. It is a wonderful place, and I have traveled on it with eight different border collie friends, five of which are now in Heaven. On this trip I wandered off trail and found a nice spot to camp on a ridge partially up the mountain. All the photos below are of my mountain time last week with Beau, Hayley, and Mollie.
