Charlie loves being on the trail, climbing rocks, and getting dirty!
✅ Mission accomplished!
Lovely wildflowers: another sign of winter’s abundant snowfall
Late afternoon hike
views of distant snow capped peaks,
ever changing skies
Taken on the peak just behind our house. The first time I took him there a year ago, he could barely make it over a small felled tree. At this point, he’s leaping over everything and runs laps and circles to get in some exercise on this very short climb.
Charlie loves the snow! He looks for the deepest pile he can find and burrows his face in. He happily frolics through drifts and pristine off trail snow. His most recent addition to his repertoire of enjoying the snow is roll in it on his back.
Hiking in the snow is a good workout. Especially when there’s another dog to chase.
After sleeping in his bed for a while (not shown here) Charlie’s second nap was under the table to remain close while I had lunch.
He decided he had enough energy to switch to yet another napping location which allowed him to be close to Mom. It’s nice to have a shadow. 😊
I love this face. 😍
