Setting up at our favorite spot.
Feeling like I'm on top of the world!
Quick story - Bob and I have found at least 3 lost dogs while we have been in the mountains, and this camping trip was no exception! We were just minding our own business, driving down a beautiful road, when Bob said, "There's a dog in the road." I thought it was a calf, but sure enough, it was a dog, he was standing in the middle of the road, and he was very lost! I'm pretty sure that God knows how gullible we are, and just drops them right in our path to take care of!!
He was so sad . . . and soooo skinny! We gave him a little food, but not too much, especially since he was so hungry, and had been without food for a long time.
This poor guy was so weak, he couldn't even get into into the truck by himself - Bob had to lift him in. He did have on a collar with a name and phone number on it, and a GPS collar. We called his owner, who fortunately, was not very far away - and in fact, had been coming to the hills, looking for his dog everyday for a week!! They had been bear hunting, and his dog got away from him and had been gone for 7 days . . . without food, thank goodness there was plenty of water. His owner was very happy to see him, as he was his best dog! This beautiful dog was named, Jake!
Cole did not know what to think about Jake. . . sitting on his seat!! But he tolerated him, even let him lay down while he sat on the floor!
We were on a walk and Cole scared up this rabbit - it scared him to more than it scared the rabbit!
Cole had a great time playing in the forest!
Yes, there are still cowboys in Idaho . . .
And gorgeous sunrises . . .
Cool nights, perfect for sitting in front of a fire . . .
Amazing skies . . .
Trees, perfectly spaced for putting up a hammock . . .
To take naps in . . .
John Muir said it perfectly when he said:
"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
Have a beautiful week!!
