Goodbye Summer … Hello Fall

Seasons come and seasons go.

The temperatures are cooling off here in Central Arizona; Fall is in the air. Summer is over; another chapter is closed. We had a great summer with so many wonderful adventures and memories. We enjoyed sharing them with you.

We went on several different hikes together and discovered some beautiful places to explore locally.

We also went on some trips away from home and visited some gorgeous places along the way. I hope you enjoyed following our summer adventures as much as we enjoyed sharing them with you. Now … bring on the new season … Hello Fall!

A Day at the Lake

Willy and I explored the shores of Watson Lake.

It was a gorgeous day for a hike around the shores of Watson Lake in Prescott Arizona. It is no secret that Willy loves the water, so this was definitely his kind of adventure!

One just does not take Willy anywhere near water and not let him go swimming. Oh how Willy loves to play in the water!

As we hiked around the shores we saw some people in their kayaks. Willy thought that was pretty cool. Personally, I think he was hoping they would offer him a ride.

Watson Lake is surrounded by Granite boulders. I had a lot of fun with this photo shoot. Gorgeous scenery, beautiful water reflections and a very handsome dog. It made my job fairly easy.

Willy didn’t care so much about the photo part, but he did really enjoy climbing the boulders. I think it made him feel like he was on top of the world!

Sometimes you just have to do something that makes you feel glad to be alive!

Until next time, get out and go on an adventure of your own!

Six Places at Once

Not too many dogs, or people for that matter, can say they have been to six places at once!

Willy and I took a little trip last week. We drove to Delta, Colorado. Willy is always excited for another adventure.

Our first stop was The Four Corners National Monument. Now I know that it is true that when you stand at a certain spot on the monument you are in four states at the same time, but did you know that you are also standing in two different Native American Reservations? So Willy actually was at SIX places at once: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, the Navajo Reservation as well as the Ute Reservation.

Can I just say that it was HOT that day! It was 108 degrees so I did not let Willy’s paws be on the hot sidewalk longer than it took to snap a couple quick photos. This was the best photo I could get, but believe me when I say, he truly was six places at once. After this quick stop we were on the road again into Colorful Colorado!

Can I just say this was by far the most BEAUTIFUL drive I have ever been on thus far in my 53 years of living on this earth. We followed the Dolores River for miles and miles.

We saw some gorgeous scenery. This was June 19th and there was still snow on the mountains.

An absolutely stunning sight where lush green meets snowy mountains.

We arrived at our destination and picked up Willy’s new friend, Carly Sue. Then we checked into our hotel room. Willy and Carly got to know each other then we got some much needed sleep for the journey back home the next day.

Until next time, stop to enjoy the beauty around you.
