San Carlos camping, We saw a ??????

Hi All!  Sierra-dog here.  My latest adventure included some Truck Camping on the Apache Indian Reservation outside of Globe, AZ.

It was super pretty there.

I drove.

Just kidding, BM said that I couldn't.  So I was the navigator.  I took this job very seriously and didn't lay down on the job...


The peeps ate at their favorite restaurant in Globe.  They think it is a must-stop if you like little dive restaurants were they serve Mexican food and chips with butter on them.  Yummy and TOTALLY low-cal. *Cough, yeah right, Cough*

Here is our camp site.  It wasn't bad! What was bad was the graffiti on the rock.  At least it was pleasant.

I even got to sleep with the peeps in the back of the truck because I am special.  Err.. Dexie got to also.

We started in on our hike down the creek when the peeps noticed how warm the water was.

We then noticed how much green stuff there was in the creek.  BM says the warm water helps it to grow and it was EVERYWHERE!

Hum... more green stuff.  LL called it "Algae".

A little down stream we heard a big "Splash!!!!" and  Dexie was seen swimming through this!


"Um, Ma?  Dexie says she needs some help getting out!"

Dexie: "Put away that camera and get me out! Oh, and you all can STOP LAUGHING and help me!" The poor thing looked like a green sea monster!  She was not the least bit pleased with her little swim.

After that incident we decided to abandon the creek hike idea and go for a nice drive instead.

Dexie enjoyed the view from here much more then the creek. You can see how she is all cleaned off and her coat is very shiny.  Who knew an algae swim would be so good for the furrs?  I should have charged her for pushing her in kindly suggesting she may enjoy a therapeutic mud bath.

The peeps let us blaze the trail!

We found cow tanks and went swimming.

We were very pleased to see how BM's training on throwing sticks for us is progressing so nicely. He throws until his arm gets tired. Isn't he a great peep?

While on the drive guess what we saw?  NO really, you're going to have to guess.  Here are a few hints:
1) It was fuzzy.
2) BM and LL have never seen one in AZ before.
3) It's momma was not around.
4) We were glad we were in the truck.
Come back soon for pictures!


  1. Beautiful country - I can't believe all that algae!!! Or was it duckweed??? Lezze::: was it... a fawn?
    or.......a cub??? (not sure if there are bears there, but think so!
    or.......a baby raccoon???
    We'll be back to find out!!!
    Hugs xoxo

  2. I love the suspence! It's gotta be a bear... Since you were glad to have the truck along, you obiously took it home with you, right?

  3. Great trip, and a beautiful area!!! Oh that algae! Looks like some nice weather :)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  4. Woof! Woof! What a FUN great adventure. I can't believe what happened to Dixie ... YAKs!Great photos thanks for sharing. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. Wow, what a wonderful trip you both had!!! Except for that green slime - eeewwww - not for us, although it seems to have put quite the sheen on somepup's furs.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  6. We love El Rey! I remember going there as a little kid with my dad when we'd go work on billboards with my uncle.

  7. Inquiring minds want to know - if you did not get to drive, did you at least get some of those butter covered chips at the dive Mexican food place?

  8. A little Smokey?

    I love the khreature from The Green Lagoon!

    Thanks fur sharing your pawesome time!

    PeeEssWoo: Mom says those chips sound yummy!

  9. hey Sierra,

    What a pawsome trip! Dexie looks great in green slime! The green looks lovely on her shiny black coat! And the food sounds yummy, but I don't understand what "low cal" is. Does that mean more meat? ;-> You obviously did a great job as navigator. Extra treats for you!


    p.s. is it a baby tarantula that you saw?

  10. so beautiful! I miss AZ. How hilarious about Dexie and the green slime, you could market a new product for doggy hair care :) My guess is you saw a bear because I know you've seen plenty of tarantulas before!

  11. I gotta guess baby bear, too. Wow, that algae--must have smelled lovely, too!

  12. Oh mannnnnn, I think you saw a baby Bigfoot! Yes, I'm sure I'm right ;-)

    What a fun trip! I won't show this to Augie and Ti because then they'll know how much we are lacking in the "fun" department!

  13. You guys were so close to where I work! I wish I had known!
