Dad has just posted some pix from his recent hike in the Grand Canyon this past fall. On this hike,my dad hiked from rim to rim and back. He witnessed kayakers and rafts running Colorado River rapids, saw a towering waterfall,and took a refresing dip in inner Canyon creeks. I had to be kenneled for the 8 days that he was hiking down in the Canyon but we took a 2 day rim hike after dad got back out of the Canyon. Some pix follow.

Scenic route from NM to AZ

Leaving White Sands,we journied along US 180 thru NM and on into AZ. This is a scenic back road and really is a nicer drive than the interstate. We passed by an artistic rest area in NM,a beautiful reservoir in AZ,and once in Flagstaff,dad explored a lava tube. I had unfortunately become dehydrated after hiking at White Sands,so Dad had to board me at Canyon Pet Hospital in Flagstaff while he explored the lava tube and for his later hiking in Grand Canyon.

Leaving Florida,we traveled west. We saw some unusual things along the way such as an ostrich farm in TX,rafted in a Louisiana swamp,and hiked in White Sands National Monument in NM. White Sands was really cool. If you ignored the heat,it was as though you were hiking in the snowy wastes of Antarctica! Some pix with descriptions follow.

Woofs to all! Dad and I are finally home after a 2 month trip. We journied to places such as White Sands National Monument in NM. Grand Canyon in AZ,Death Valley,Yosemite,and the CA coast including San Francisco,a hot spring in the NV desert,awesome towering cliffs and moonscape like areas in UT,Great Sand Dunes National Park in CO and a salt mine 600 ft underground in KS as well as Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in KS (this was a Dances with Wolves landscape!). Dad`s laptop is broken so we had no internet access for much of the trip hence the paucity of diary entries. Will post more later.

Woofs to all my Dogster buddies!
Dad and I have been on our fall trip for about a week now. We left Phila last Sun Sept 14 and spent the first week of our trip down in Florida where my German Shepherd cousin Julie lives. Dad and I paddled down both the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers and did a few day hikes there as well. We are now headed west to the Grand Canyon and will post when we can as our internet access while on the road is limited. We are currently staying the night with Flicka and Lucas` mom,Pam,here in Oklahoma. Dad and I enjoyed visiting with them very much!

Dad and I have been away for a little bit recently. We haven`t been to the Delaware Water Gap in almost 2 yrs so he felt that another backpacking trip was in order here. We spent 6 days hiking the Appalachian Trail and numerous side trails on the NJ side of the Gap. Dad found a few new geocaches,swam in a few lakes,and even put me in a canoe! It was fun and save for just a little rain,the weather was nice! Some pix with descriptions follow.

Leaving Florida we headed north to North Carolina`s Outer Banks. We had stayed down in Florida for an extra week to wait out Hurricane Arthur which made landfall a week earlier in the Outer Banks. We took the ferry to Ocracoke Island in the Outer Banks and spent several days walking the beach on Ocracoke and nearby Hatteras island. We also did some rafting in Pamlico Sound. This was the last activity of our spring-summer trip. It was one fun trip! Some last pix with descriptions follow.

Phase 3 of our recent trip was in the state of Florida. Dad`s sister lives there so we were able to stay at her place and spend a good bit of time there! We did several canoe and kayak trips as well as hiking various sections of the Florida Trail. At one point along the Florida Trail a gator cooling himself off along a section of flooded trail hissed at us as we rounded a bend and came upon him! Fortunately he allowed us to detour around him! The Suwannee River had many nice white sand beaches and pretty side creeks while the Santa Fe river has numerous clear springs. We even visited the Kennedy Space Center where the Shuttle Atlantis is on display. It was an adventurous time in Florida! Some pix with descriptions follow.
