Leg One

Gypsy and Blake are working towards a pack dog title and this weekend they successfully completed their first of four legs. They have to hike 10 miles with Gypsy carrying 20% of her body weight (17#). I can't imagine carrying 20% of my body weight....ugh, but she was a trooper and they both seemed to have a fun time with the others who joined in the event.
I joined them with my friends dog Razz for the first 4 miles and then called it quits; I quit just in time, because is rained for the remainder of the hike. Yuck! The pack dog hike started in a small town named Cle Elum and then continued to Roslyn (the town Northern Exposure was filmed aka Cicily, AK) so in honor of one of my all time favorite shows I tried to recreate the opening credits of the show where they have moose crossing the Roslyn Cafe sign.

Outback & Up North

On Friday we drove up north to spend the night in a small town named Cle Elum, WA before Blake & Gypsy's pack hike on Saturday. We saw this pretty sight (Mt. Adams)
and we stopped in Leavenworth; a little Bavarian-themed town. Several hours were spent in the Outback, but it was a beautiful drive full of fall colors...yeah, my favorite time of year has fully arrived! Oh, and there was a cafe named after our very own Gypsy girl!
