A greatly needed outing

Since life has been kinda quite around here lately when LL said "Let's hop in the car!" with major enthusiasm I was a little skeptical.
"Oh hum...a car trip.  We are probably only going to the vet. Boooooring!"


















A half hour later...
"Wait a minute!  THIS isn't the vet!"






















"We are at the State Park! PAWESOME!"


















"Come on LL!  We'll lead the way!"














Whew!  That was quite a hike... look what we found...

















Water!














Water!






















Water!






















And an Alien!  Who knew they had these at the State Parks?

















It was a wonderful day!
 









If your ever want to visit Montrose Pools like we did, go here:
















From Tucson head north on Oracle road until you pass Tangerine.  Look for the signs and the entrance into the park on the right.  From Phoenix, take I-10 East to the Tangerine exit.  Drive all the way down Tangerine until you get to Oracle.  Turn left on Oracle then right into the park.  Or- easier yet, give us a shout and we will join you! Leashed dogs are always welcome at the Catalina State Park.

  1. Oh good. I was looking for somewhere to take Jack with water. I wonder how long it will last.

    I've also taken him up to Rose Canyon Lake up toward Mt. Lemmon. That was his first water experience!

  2. Hi Sierra-Dog,

    So sorry it has taken us a while to visit you again. My mommy and I were doing Hospice care for a patient whom we got really attached too. The patient passed away on March 20th and we've been trying to catch up on all of our blog friends and postings and it takes a while. We are so glad to see the Khyra won the big gift. How wonderful that was!!!

    Your day out at the park looks like it was sooo much fun. Swimming in the water and finding aliens...who knew!!??? BOL!

    It took us a while to refuel after the loss, but everyone here on the blog is so supportive and loving and funny that we couldn't stay away too long.

    Glad we are back and glad we came back to read about your adventures!!

    Much love, Woof! Josie and Mr. Blues
