The girls and I just spent three weeks traveling to Utah and New Mexico, going hiking, watching birds and we attended the International Western Music Association annual award show. It was a lot to take in.

The dogs were excellent travelers, always ready to hop in the car for the next big adventure. The weather was really lovely – sunny and cool for perfect days of hiking but also cold, often really cold at night. Luna and Sky curled up with me each night in the tent trailer and we managed to keep kind of warm most nights. We saw lots of amazing sights – great sunsets and sunrises, red rock and canyons of Utah, ancient ruins and thousands of Sandhill Cranes.

Our first campsite was at Antelope Island State Park near Salt Lake City. The lake is dreadfully low and I never did make it out to the water’s edge. Antelope Island can be a good place to see birds but the day I was there it was pretty windy. It has a pioneer ranch where you can walk among the old buildings and equipment. There are some horses you can rent and also there is an introduced herd of bison that is actively managed.
