Kings Canyon is an amazing place. Incredible rock, deep canyons and is one of the largest road-less terrains in the USA.
I got to dig all I wanted while camping...mom thought I was trying to hit water...or up-root some of the big trees... Nope, just diggin'...like to do it!
We kayaked each afternoon around Hume Lake.
I usually rode with dad, and sat between his legs....not sure what I was doing here for the photo.
We had some friends visit for a few nights...dad and our friend, Sparky (has endless energy), went on a big road bike ride into Kings Canyon.
Every morning, mom and I would race down to the little Hume'n Beane coffee deck for mom's coffee, my dose of lots of kids, and I always got some good deck sniffing in. And, water of course!
Well...dad's mountain bike frame cracked a few days in to the trip...luckily, we were close to an area that had internet. This day, I hung out a very long time at the boat shack with dad and mom....lots of kids to visit with, but I really would have rather been swimming in the lake....
Watching other paddlers....
Back in the boat with dad.
How come dad gets to chow down!? I love that chair...I have it on the deck at home too. Very snuggly.
Mom's getting me used to the lake water...I was very hesitant at first, and would cling on to her for dear life!
Then, just sit with dad...got too cold for me a few times...burrrr....
Loved sliding down that tent sidewall.
My little friend we met on the first day at the cafe deck.
Hanging out on the deck....mom would try to get through one cup of coffee, while I played and sniffed around the deck floor, and met lots of Hume Lake campers.
Mom with a big tree trunk!
Everyday, I would change colors from the dirt I played in. But, got washed off every afternoon in the lake.
Dad heading off on a mountain bike ride.
Did not like the fenced off area I was to hang out in when we first got to our camping site. Yuck! I want to be out around the site!
There's my tent red and blue, and the gate I didn't like...it ended up being used for drying towells, and I got a bigger area with a runner, so I could be in the middle of the campsite, and mom and dad didn't have to worry I would bark or knock the gate down.
It took me a few nights to get used to night's sounds and all the different critters....squirrels, birds, spiders, bears, BEARS! We didn't see any at camp, but out on walkies, I was steered clear of the bear poop!
