We stayed in Taos, Pagosa Springs, Silverton, Delores, Soccoro, and Roswell, the longest in Taos Ski Valley which was way up 9200 ft. A husky dog greeted us first off and she wasn't even the house dog! And the owner had a BIG cat - 22 lb. Elwood. We looked at each other a lot and I barked at him, when behind the window. Hey, I'm not stupid...We took drives all over and walked around all those places. They got some strange animals up there. One day while on a drive in the mountains, Dad brakes for this animal who is sunbathing in the middle of the highway, actually on the center stripe. He lumbers off into the woods - I find out it's a marmot. Then in Colorado at our cabin, there is an army of chipmunks and ground squirrels (neither resemble the tree rats at my house). I get to bark a lot at them, but of course cannot chase them, "They're so cute." my mom whines. Bite-size squirrels is what they are, specially those chipmunk things. Saw a snow-shoe rabbit - that dude had humongous feet! And deer and antelope and stuff like that. Bunch of elk crossing signs everywhere, but no elk. And mountain sheep - same thing. Guess my reputation had preceded me. Went to White Sands - radical place but it was like 102 outside and I was really appreciating the AC about then. Last night we were at Roswell, where the aliens ended up and it was a big stink. There were little green aliens all over. Even a KFC had a sign "Aliens Welcome." But you know, they won't let DOGS come in, wazzup with that???
