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

Spring Apalachian Backpacking Trip

Woofs to all!
Dad and I just got back from a 5 day backpacking trip on the Appalachian trail. We hiked an area near Harrisburg,PA known as the St Anthony wilderness(apparently the Jesuits had a retreat there in the 1800`s). This spot is one of the largest roadless areas in PA and also contains ruins of old coal mining towns that once thrived here. We were able to hike the Appalachian trail as well as some side trails here. At one point excellent views were had of the Susquehanna river from the Appalachian trail. The first 3 days of the hike were sunny and warm although by day 3 the winds were getting rather gusty in advance of an approaching cold front. The front came thru on day 4 with rain and falling temps. The rain actually ended as light snow on our 4th night and when we exited our tent on morning day 5,there was a light dusting of snow! Some pix with descriptions follow.

After a LONG winter,spring is finally here! We were blessed with some nice weather the first few days of April,so dad decided to take me for a 3 day backpacking trip in the NJ Pine Barrens. The land here is mostly flat which made for rather easy hiking. We explored some old jeep roads,hiked an abandoned rail line thru remote parts of the pines,swam in chilly rivers and found 2 more geocaches. It was a fun trip! Some pix with descriptions follow.

Craters of the Moon

We entered the lower 48 crossing into Washington state from British Columbia. The end of the day found us in southern Montana. It was fiercely windy and cold as night descended. We found a spot to camp in our car overnite at a ranch gate near the interstate. Some snow overnite made the early morning driving a bit scary as we entered Idaho but the snow soon ended. We were headed for Craters of the Moon national monument near Idaho Falls. This area is a vast lava field with rugged terrain and volcanic craters. We hiked some trails here and even hiked thru an underground lava tube. Some pix with descriptions follow.
