Last Sunday, Mom and I hosted a brunch at our house for some of our friends. They all came over at 9am, and unfortunately we dogs got sent outside while they got to stay inside and eat something called a Sleepin' In Omelette (one of Pioneer Woman's recipes), some toast, fruit, and they got to have coffee, juice, and homemade apple cider. How rude of them not to even share with us. Oh well, we hardly noticed as we were busy playing outside. After they enjoyed their meal, they loaded us all up and we went for an incredible hike! I guessI can forgive them on the breakfast thing since they did take us out for a nice long adventure. It was a gorgeous day in the canyon but the best part was NO wind! We have had over 50 m.p.h winds here for a week straight...YUCK! I didn't even want to go outside in it, but in the canyon where we hiked we were protected from the evil wind.
Julie & Ozzie
We came across the remnants of an old house. The foundation was still there, and there were apple trees and a beautiful quince bush near it. We imagined how hard it must have been to build a home in this canyon back in the day, and that they probably had to plant all those trees and a garden to grow their own food.
Christina & Hank
Doesn't Hank look dashing! Mom loved this tree and made us pose in front of it. We obliged her, but I assure you it had nothing to do with the fact that treats were involved. ;)
Colleen & Sierra
I like to call Colleen's pose "The Running Woman". And Sierra is in her normal "Scout Out The Area" pose.
We even saw some scary Bassett Hounds. I know what you are thinking..."scary, they aren't scary, they are SO cute!" Well, TRUST me, they ARE scary....you should have heard their deep, menacing bark! It was like a roar, really. I steered clear and made sure to make a WIDE circle around them. Better safe than sorry. ;)
Julie likes to take pictures as much as my Mom, so they both enjoyed capturing us doggies in the field of lupine.
Here I am springing into action.
Taking a break from frolicking in the lupine.
And here Sierra and I are on our way home. As you can see, I pretty much was out like a light as soon as Colleen put the car into drive. Not the case with Sierra, but she did lay down which is HIGHLY unusual for her in the car, so she must have been a wee bit tired after our grand adventure. I love hiking with friends...can't wait for our next adventure.
