Our wolves are still here and finally they are letting
My Vickie get close enough for some fun
pictures. Kaos has always been friendly
and playful with her but Kara
is still very cautious.
We laughed a lot when we saw the picture
above because we think Kaos looks like
the Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood.
Kaos is always making us laugh.
Kara, is still pretty standoffish.
But oh what a beauty she is.
So Goose, Buddy
I have a new place for
us to take our humans and you
are gonna love it.
Today My Vickie and I
decided to hike up the mountains to
see if the mountain goats were
coming down for the winter.
Our goal was the big rock cliff above.
My Vickie took me to an old trail that
she used to hike up years ago
thinking we could get all the way up.
Only the old trail is now under water.
A huge stream has covered the trail over the
last four years and so we had to
hike right up the water.
It was cold for her, but perfect for me
We had a great time and she only complained
about her wet feet a few times.
We were thinking it looked a little bit
like spring with the little bushes and
their light green leaves.
As we hiked along, My Vickie came to
a place that she and her sister Wendy used
to come to to pan for gold.
Yep, she was one of those people.
I thought I would give "looking for gold"
a try. But then I gave up and just played in the water.
Isn't it beautiful, and check out
all the different kinds of rocks.
Can you find me in this picture.
I think I did find gold.
We didn't make it to the top
cause we got side tracked by all
the stuff around us.
Like when we looked up
we saw three bald eagles.
My Vickie was so excited.
The eagles come back every
winter and spend their time
flying in our mountains and fishing
in our big lake.
Then My Vickie took me to her old house.
And I mean Old. It was built in the 1800's
Check out the door upstairs.
It was what they called a polygamist home
One of the wives lived upstairs
and 100 years ago there was stairs
coming out of that part and going down
so the wives didn't have to actually live together.
This was her view from the old house.
My Vickie said it was old and drafty and didn't have heat
and that the winters were very cold. She said that the
bathroom was an old outhouse that was connected
to the house in the 40's. Wow.
She said she moved out about 15 years ago
Now why would you ever leave a cool place like that.
Well, I have really rambled tonight, haven't I?
So I am off, but not without telling
everyone how much we both
appreciate all your concern and
sympathies from our last post.
No Allred hasn't come home yet.
Tomorrow My Vickie has one more
place to check out. But we are not
holding out a lot of hope.
It is a real long shot.
