Tag Archives: dog walks

Luna and I had a nice walk in the woods this afternoon. She wears a brace on her leg to protect her injured Achilles tendon. In a dog, it has a different name but it’s easier to think of it that way. She klunks when she walks with it so we have nicknamed her, Klunker.

Fallen larch needles cushioned the trails. Some snow lingered but most of it is gone with the extreme warm temperatures recently. We often expect to be skiing on these trails by now.

Luna still enjoys walks in the woods and smelling all the smells. I like to see all the small scenes in the woods and the scent of the pine trees.

October went from fall to winter and back to fall. The girls and I got out on various walks, in various weather. It was all good.

We started with a walk up at the pass so the girls could play in the snow. Of course, Sky found a tennis ball. A dirty, partially rotten tennis ball. She was so proud. Another day we went to Big Valley right after a rain squall. The colors were magnified by the moisture. Shortly after that we went back to Big Valley after the first real snowfall in the valley. And salmon were spawning in the river this month. Circle of life.

The dogs have been enjoying the weather recently. Nights are very cold and in the morning the snow is firm enough to support their weight. Mine too. Daytime temperatures are well into the forties so all in all, it’s a lovely time to be out and about!
