up at the crack of dawn to take cody bear hiking with some special dogs and their drivers/feeders/holders-of-leash.

the trails were outside of town on a winding road.  many tributes along the way.

this memorial was right near the entrance to the trails:

so many emotions swirl when you see one.  how sad.  how remarkable to be loved so much.  how striking a contrast:  the stark desert life with the colorful tribute to someone who has died.

it was so cold this morning and the heater in my honda decided to take the day off.  i was all bundled up and loving the beautiful morning.  cody bear and i were so happy.  we were doing on on leash hike with two other sets of people and their scaredy dogs.   it looked beautiful to me…and it smelled beautiful to him!

offroadtypically you will find horseback riders, hikers, off-roaders…and…wildlife.  cody bear went to pee on a bush and “flushed” a cottontail out.  good thing i had a grip on the leash.  he was SO excited.  cats schmats.

here we are…

ushikingme and my wonderful, lovable guy enjoying the cold air while being harangued by woodpeckers.

don’t worry.  as soon as i got home pickles had some intense frisbee play and some speed demon activity in the back yard.  they’re both sleeping right behind me.  i’m going to wake her up and make her go on a walk with me right now….

later taters.

Are those pigtails I see in your reflection? That looks so cute!

Comment by forkboy

I absolutely HATE road side tributes/memorials. I don’t understand why somebody wants to decorate and remember where their loved one died in a tragic accident! I mean, how could they forget?!?

Sorry…

V nice photo of Bear though.
