I am a California dog born and raised, Utah has such weather extremes. Actually a lot of these states we have visited are cold. More on that later, today I am just going to share about the last three parks we visited after Zion in Utah. We went from warm and wet to cold and icy and then back to hot. I thought it was spring not winter. From Zion we headed to Bryce Canyon. It was cold and there was snow. One day my human dad found icicles hanging from the trailer. I was thankful mom brought lots of blankets and our trailer has a heater. I can’t imagine sleeping in a tent up here.
At Bryce there were these things called Hoodoos. They are really cool, apparently they don’t grow up from the ground but instead are from erosion that shapes the limestone into pillars.
This park only allows doggies within the parking lot and look-out within that area. So my humans got to see everything we just couldn’t take any hikes.
The first stop was really muddy from the rain the night before and my paws were very dirty. But the last stop was icy and had snow on the ground which was great at cleaning the mud off, better than a pedicure I bet.
After Bryce we went to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in the Moab area. It was warm there, but not too warm it was nice. My humans had been to Arches before and they explored part of Canyonlands. This was more a stop over for two nights to relax before we enter Colorado. So we explored a little but these parks are not made for dogs. Have your humans secure daycare or a pet sitter if they want to hike. The ground is not good for your paws.
My humans have a selfie stick so they can take pictures with all three of us together. At first I thought it was dorky but I do like seeing the three of us together. Sometimes though I am sleeping in the car and Mom will sneak and take pictures of me. She is really silly.
From Utah we head into Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota and then we start heading west back to Wyoming. I hope we get to a place where I can run around a little bit and smell new and interesting things. It has been a week or so since they made Steak, so I hope they go to a store and get some more. But I can’t complain they had burgers the other night and I got a mini one all to myself. I have good humans who spoil me.
I wonder what new places I will see tomorrow and yummy treats for my tummy. Take the time to embrace the smells and sights of your journey, enjoy the moments of each day.
