Woo-hoo! I’m going up into the mountains today!!!

Mountain Man Bogart

We’re heading to Zigzag – and we’re going to walk in the mountains of the Mt. Hood National Forest!

See, dad and I are REAL mountain men – we’re prepared with our rucksack filled with supplies just in case…

Now it’s time to head up – we hope to get all the way to Ramona Falls (about 4.4 miles)

Wait a minute… WHAT IS THIS WHITE STUFF?  It’s COLD and it’s WET and it’s WHITE…

Yes folks, this is Bogart’s First Snow.  The only snow I’ve ever seen was fake snow made on the street in Pasadena, I’ve never been in anything real before.

This is the river – it doesn’t seem like much from this vantage point but that’s deceiving…

I SMELL SOMETHING – there were ANIMALS here!!!!!!!!  (note to Bogart – yep, there was deer poop everywhere)

There was still a LOT of snow, and walking wasn’t easy for the humans who only have their inferior 2-wheel drive… I however have canine 4-wheel drive so for me it was no problemo.

Look at this giant tree!  It made mom and me look TINY!!!

I even found a great stick – woo-hoo!!

It was a great walk, I can’t wait to do it again!  I hear that next time there probably won’t be any snow so the walking will be easier – and of course, it will be easier to see all of the sticks!!!Mountain Man Bogart

Back in dad’s car, time to drive home.  These longish drives relax me…

One more snout full of fresh mountain air…

Hey wait, you mean I HAVE TO SIT IN THE CAR WHILE YOU TWO GO EAT???

Mountain Man Bogart

Ah it’s ok.  I’m kinda tired anyway…

Love,

  1. Hey Bogart,
    That is a very lovely place for walkies. Such nice scenery. Did you sleep all of the way home? We would have.
    Luv & Wirey Hugs!

  2. That looks like a great place for walkies! AND you found a stick! We’ve seen snow a few times, but not like you saw. Ours doen’t really stick to the ground for very long…just long enough to make everything muddy!

    Aire-hugs,
    Poppy, Penny & Patches 😀

  3. Snow in May! Hey, we’re impressed! Looks like a chapter out of a Jack London novel. No doubt, there are wolves about.

    Love the last nose-shot!

    Cheers,

    Sephie & Buster
