Arrival Story:
Wanting to find a companion for my old dog, Smiley,I logged onto Petfinder and did a search for golden retrievers or golden mixes. I located Wesley at the Lehigh County Humane Society in Allentown,PA. Wesley may have a bit of husky in him as he has a curved tail and a bit of an independent mindset!

Bio:
I like camping,hiking,and rafting. My Dad and I enjoy overnite trips along the Appalachian Trail,we`ve done hikes in PA,NJ,and the Shenandoah`s in VA. We have also taken trips out west and hiked in the Grand Canyon,Death Valley,and Yosemite. We have even done a trip to Alaska together back in 2008 and hope to go there again in 2013. I also enjoy rafting on the Delaware river. More videos are here youtube More Wesley photos are on webshots My photos on webshots My Facebook page

Dad hiked for 4 days by himself in California`s Yosemite National Park. My arthritis flared up really bad in Death Valley and I had to be boarded at the Bishop Vet Hospital to recuperate. He hiked trails up into the granite spires above Yosemite Valley as well as a trail which wound around Yosemite Valley floor,passing El Capitan. Climbers were visible climbing the sheer rock face of El Capitan. The fall foliage in Yosemite valley was beautiful as were reflections in the Merced River. Dad even climbed to the base of Half Dome. He picked me up from the Bishop Vet Hospital and we spent a final day hiking around Tenaya Lake and the Merced redwood grove in Yosemite. Then it was on to San Francisco and the Pacific coast.

Our first major stop upon reaching California was in Death Valley National Park. This is an awesome place with salt flats,wierd mud formations,sand dunes,ghost towns,old mine shafts and tall mountains. A picture is worth a thousand words and the link to them is below!

After 2 days hiking the Rim trail in both directions,we left Flagstaff and Grand Canyon heading west to California. A favourite place of ours is Lake Havasu. This is a man made lake in the Arizona desert on the California border. London Bridge was shipped here in pieces and reassembled. You actually have to drive over it to reach the beach! Bullet holes from German planes can be seen in the bridge supports,a relic of the Blitz. Dad inflated the raft and tube on the beach and we spent a few hours out on the lake,dad swimming in the tube and towing me behind in the raft. Then we proceeded on into California. Darkness overtook us and we camped that night at a peaceful spot in the desert. The next morning,we traveled thru the desert headed for Death Valley,seeing some interesting sights along the way.
