Pups Go West 2012 – Day 3

It’s always unnerving waking up with the feeling that someone or something is watching you.  That was the feeling I had when waking suddenly at 5am on our first morning in Utah.  Surprisingly, it wasn’t the usual staring suspect (Mira), Yukon’s fuzzy black figure was the one hovering over me.  Assuming he wanted to eat, I told him to go back to sleep so I could have an hour or so more rest.  It was freezing in the Jeep so I invited the little snuggle dog Mira to climb in my bag…instant warmth!

My plan was to start the day out with a quick drive down Kane Creek Blvd. past Hunter’s Canyon.  I’ve ridden this road several times on my motorcycle and after traveling it in the Jeep, I’m not sure why I’d ever do it on the Ninja 🙂  Lots of washboard bumps and steep switchbacks…perfect for a KLR or GS not so much for a sportbike!

Campgrounds were still packed for the night so I drove with the dogs up to Green River and grabbed a cheap motel to do some laundry and relax while planning the following day…Temple Mountain Rd. and Goblin Valley State Park in the morning.

I'm currently on a long stretch of work (ends tomorrow thankfully), the dogs haven't gotten a ton of activity over the past week or so.  Today I too them out to a local lake for a dip.  Mira was so tired she could hardly pull herself out of the water and I had to drag Yukon, the lab, out by his collar because he was having a tantrum - didn't want to leave 😜. Mira looks a little chunky when she's dry, it's always funny to see her wet when all of her floof is plastered to her sides! #australianshepherd #australianshepherdsofinstagram #labmix #blacklab #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram  #labsofinstagram #swimming #michigan #summer Early chicken spotted on our hike this evening.  I brought a couple home, I'm giving them a second chance. #chickenofthewoods #mushroomhunting #wildmushroom #sulphurshelf #woodstotable #publicland #huronmanisteenationalforest #michigan #foraging RAWR!!!!! Always on turtle patrol, this little mossy-backed Snapping Turtle was in the middle of the road.  I helped it to the other side even though it was ready to fight 😂 #turtlepatrol #snappingturtle #turtle #michigan #baldwin Always cherish time on the trail with this little old lady, she might not be as fast or hike as far as she used to but she still loves to be out exploring.  We knocked out 3 miles on the North Country Trail this morning north of Timber Creek (near Baldwin, MI), nice to have a little cooler weather! #hikingwithdogs #hiking #northcountrytrail #nct #hike100nct #michigan #baldwin #olddogsrule #traildog #australianshepherd #australianshepherdsofinstagram #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram
