We left Utah the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and headed south. 20 at night, is just too cold. Plus, we had everything done we needed to do as far as art stuff. This was the first time we hit the road without Roxy. She did love the desert, and she is watching and traveling along I’m sure.
We don’t have any art shows in Arizona until January, so we have time to explore. We like to stay at Lake Mead not too far from Valley of Fire every time we pass this way. Something different this trip was wild burros were we boondock. We sometimes see them in the general area, but never right were we camp.
There is just not enough years to spend with a special little soul like Roxy.
December 25th, 2004 – October 16th, 2020
I started this blog in January 2011 under the name Roxy the Traveling Dog. And she was quite the little traveler. She went a lot of places, and had a lot of fun. Her favorite thing ever was meeting new people, or seeing old friends. She was quite the people person, or dog. She touched so many people, some who never met her. Because of the blog, she became a little bit of a celebrity and it was always crazy when people would approach us and recognize her.
Bears. Everyone loves the bears. They can be the most challenging to find, and get good photos of, but so nice when you get that chance. It’s definitely right place, right time with them. They move around, people move around, and sometimes our paths cross. There are areas where your chances go up though, areas where bears are known to be.
Then you just have to hope they cooperate.
“I’m not coming out, it’s too peopley out there.”
We were walking on a trail we enjoy, and saw this bear clear out on a limb getting hawthorn berries. This is the time of year when they focus on getting fat, hyperphagia, and the berries are a prime source of food.
