Since their picture got posted a couple years ago, they've gotten up to about 13,800' on Mt. Elbert and also been to Black Mountain, KY in May. They stayed home when we did Wheeler Peak in September. Although they did incerdibly well on Elbert, they also drank most of our water supply. We wanted to make sure we did everything right on Wheeler in order to be successful. They'll join us in the future when we do the Dakotas.

Their count is now up to 8. Had a terrific time with them on Eagle Mountain. They did however jump into the streams and came out looking like little bear cubs from the mud. Their feathering was a mess too from collecting everything else. Knew we should have given them total body shorns before we left. We saw a moose too. One of the highlights of the hike.

Stayed overnight at the Kenton Kabins, started at the trailhead at 6:50 am and got to the summit an hour and a half later. It was 34 degrees when we started out and it was 73 at 10:30. We did great timing on the trail but had to go back to find our dropped camera.

The pups did real well on this hike. Both slept in the truck throughout the rest of the way to the hotel in Woodward. They didn't even get out when we checked out the CO-KS-OK tri-state corner. This way our second time atop Black Mesa and the pups first time there. This is their 14th highpoint.

Wow, hard to believe it's been nearly 4 years since our pups been atop a highpoint. Stayed overnight in nearby Richmond on route to NY to visit our folks. Minnie & Clare still enjoy hiking though they can only be short hikes - they will be 11 y/o in March.

did one on way to NY and the other on the way back. We wanted to do Driskill too but at 12 and a half yrs old and ailing bones, even the 1.8 round trip would have been too much for them
Makes their count 17
