I’m dedicating 2019 to adventure and stepping outside my comfort zone. On days where I’m feeling less than adequate, rather than isolating myself and staying in my hermit cave, I leave my house instead. I find that when I get out into nature and explore new places with Wynston all of my worries disappear. One of my goals for this year is to travel around more of Arizona and truly enjoy everything The Grand Canyon State has to offer. So on a cloudy February day, we headed to Saguaro Lake and stopped at Butcher Jones Recreation Site to see what all the hype is about.
Desert living is unlike anything else in the country. It’s hot, dry and full of critters that don’t typically hang out in a majority of the US. Many people will be traveling with their pets for BlogPaws 2016 in Phoenix, AZ so it’s important to know what could be lurking around the desert landscape. Here are some tips for protecting your dog from the demons in the desert!
Yesterday, Wynston and I went hiking at Usery Mountain Regional Park with my friend Katie and her dogs Chipper and Quinci. It was a brisk morning, especially as we got higher up in the mountain and the wind picked up – hence the name Wind Cave Trail I suppose! It was a 3.2 mile hike round trip through narrow paths and massive boulders. It’s definitely not a path for humans or dogs who may struggle with basic physical fitness. Wynston absolutely loved it. He jumped from boulder to boulder like it was no big deal. Enjoy the photos!
