Puppy Therapy

Taking a page from blogger pal Zoom, I took my camera on my travels to Trail today. I was rewarded when I saw this cute little guy out on an excursion with his new "mommy." It's a chihuahua puppy, and, while I'm not really a fan of that particular breed, you have to be a pretty cold-hearted SOB to not love puppies of any breed, right? Right! The lady was gracious enough to let me photograph this seven week old little guy.

Water Water Everywhere

These were taken last week during a camping trip to Syringa Creek, which is on the Lower Arrow Lake.

Red Mountain & Poochy's

Yesterday, I hiked up Red with my dad, stopping at the top at Poochy's Inn, the ski cabin. The elevation gain between our starting point and the cabin is just shy of 1500 feet. Full story here.

Cominco is capping off a lot of old mine shafts, so these signs are posted at closed trail heads. Most people ignore the signs.

Looking up Sally's Alley, across which the Red Summit trail criss-crosses.
