last weekend

Last weekend, we took the pup and his new girlfriend up to Mt. Charleston to enjoy the nice weather and the last of the winter's snow. We made the hike up to 8,500 ft to Mary Jane falls, the view from which is gorgeous.

At the top of the mountain, the falls were half melted. Some running water coupled with the vibrant blue ice and a fun little (big!) cave to explore made the trek up totally worth it. The pups seems to have a fun time too - eating snow, chasing snowballs and running around - up and down the snow bank formed at the base of the falls.

About halfway into our rest/ play period at the base of the falls, a whole dog pack made it's way to the top with their owners. There was a bit of an impromptu dog park created at that time and they totally wore each other out. Before they completely pooped themselves out, we headed back down the mountain and ended the hike with another quick romp in the snow.

Hope you all had a fun weekend as well!
