Walking towards the sky....

Greetings my friends! Mom and I on today's morning walkie, which for some reason has recently turned into big morning hikes! What has gotten in to mom?
The sun has been shining, hills have turned summer brown, and mornings are just cool enough for some hiking. I'm willing to go provided I get lots of water, shade breaks and sticks :)
The past few mornings, mom seems quite keen on this particular route...pretty views, very quiet, lots of sky...
And good grief...many uphills!
Thanks!! Yummy waters....I'll take some on my head too, ok?
Oh's up we go.
Looking back...Mt. Tamalpais in the distance.
To the other side...far out is the hint of San Pablo Bay.
Break time thank you! We take a few minutes at the shady spots. The air is still cool with a few breezes .
There's a bee in there......
Lots of monkey flowers. Didn't see any actual monkeys though :)
Oh yeah! My stickie on our first day out here...nice one, eh?
The trail ends at private property. At that point, we rest a bit then turn around and off we go...down down down....
And down...
Another stick break.
This was today's stickie. And...shhhh, I snuck stickie in the car when we got back... :)Ah ha! You know.....always return to my swimmin' hole!
Nice walkie but I am SO ready for some pool!
Fill it up please!
Ah! I'll be here for a while! Have a sweet day pals!


  1. Sierra, you crack me up! I couldn't hang with your mom but you do and so you deserve your big ole pool.

  2. What a full day! What fun you must have had!!

  3. You sure did go up high, Sierra! Taking long walks is always a good way to get out excess energy.

    But your pool does look like the perfect place to hang out after a long hot walk....ahhhh!

    I guess you didn't get to bring your stickie in your pool though. Oh well :)

  4. Hi, Sierra Rose!
    Yes! More hiking than walkie!
    But sure it was great!
    Kisses and hugs

  5. What a great morning! We wish we could join you sometime!!

  6. The picture of you with a wet head on your hike is the cutest!

  7. Oh, what a beautiful place to hike! My mom want to go there right now...


  8. Woof! Woof! How beautiful. Oh I wish I could have gone with you. I bet it was HOT n definitely pool is the only way to go to cool off. It's HOT here too so I also had some pool time ... a really good one. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. Wow, what a beautiful place for an adventure! We don't have mountains here in Kansas ... I wonder if I could get some?!? They look incredible!
    Thanks for taking us hiking with you!
    Play bows,

  10. Very nice walk! I like that the trail/road is wide - you don't have to worry about snakes!

    Have fun in your pool!


  11. What a great walk, Sierra AND those sticks are super. Bet you are glad it starts UPhill and that you can return by the DOWNhill. Happy pooltime.

  12. Hi Sierra Rose,

    You and your Mom sure go on long walks/hikes! That is some very pretty country too :) Your pool looks so fun too. Enjoy!

  13. Sierra - you go on the best hikes! I really like that big ole fat stick you found - I would've been running around the yard w/ it. Your pool looks very refreshing, I wish my mommy would hurry up and get me one. Let me know when your 1st pool party is!
    Love, Scout

  15. Wow, you guys do the best walkies ever. BTW, you can never have enough sticks. Wonderful pictures, thanks for sharing.

  16. A great hike and a cool dip in the drink afterward... ahhh, it's a dog's life! :)

  17. What a lovely place you and your mom go hiking! The scenery is so beautiful and yes, lots of sky! I love the blue sky. Isn't summer full of adventures and fun?

  18. Whew, we're tired too just from the photos!!!

  19. Sierra, you're so lucky to have such a cool place to hike. It's so fun to have summer, isn't it? Summer means hiking and adventures but you also have to remember to drink more water too. Have fun!!!

  20. Such a great walk...I would love to join you some time and experience the hot dry 'foggy doggy dew' here today...thunder and lightning and raindrops....YOUR POOL is the same as mine....yeah...we have good taste!!

  21. I bet that you're not complaining, Sierra, about those long hikes! What familiar terrain for me... it's fun to see. It's been a while for me but I thought that it was usually foggy and cool at this time of year.... I keep being surprised to see scenes of bright sun and you in the pool!

    Have fun, girl!

  22. what a great way to start a morning walkie.....with a nice steep hike! your mommy sure knows some beautiful trails to walk! And I think that stick is the best part! That, and the pool after of course!! One lucky dog!

  23. At least it's all downhill once you get to the top!

  24. Hey pal, what a nice place to go fur a hike! Your mom sure is lucky that you took her along! :)
    Of course the best part is the pool after the hike!

  25. What a beautiful hike Sierra! We just love all your hills and mountains!!

    We just get sidewalks mostly...:-(

  26. What a beautiful hike you got! We are very jealous. Where we are hiking is dangerous because of rattlesnakes and coyotes! I want to take Simba to Colorado really bad so that we could hike one of the big mountains. Thanks for the cute posts you always do!!!

  27. What a beautiful walk/hike. I can't imagine being out in the "open" like that. Where did all your yellow cabs go?

    I need one of those pools. You look very happy in yours!

  28. What a beautiful place for a walk and you found a stick. Us Heeler's love sticks.. Hey do you share that pool with other pups? We will get our towels...

  29. Sierra,
    What a beautiful hike you had! That place is wonderful! Gorgeous pictures! The pool after your walk is perfect!

  30. Sierra, our momma is lovin' those monkey flowers! She isn't all that crazy about the monkeys some people have in the house 'cause she says she wouldn't yike to clean a hairy diaper - but she sure loves those flowers☺

  31. That was a pawesome hike! I bet it took you and Ma about 20 minutes to reach that gate!!! The views are totally pawtastic and your Mom's 120% correct - a BBer!!!! It takes Dad and Mom and me about an hour to get up there hee hee! But it is so pretty - thanks for the pictures - beautiful day and you deserved that great pooltime (and stick!)
    Big Hugs xoxoxo

  32. Woo, that looks like a trail we would love. Can we come next time?

  33. I'm tired just from watching you! Fortunately our hills are smaller, so we reach the sky faster. ;)

  34. Thanks for taking me on your walk - from your photos and description it is almost like being there with you. Mum also likes your sun-tanned look - I'm a pale Golden Retriever.

  35. Looks like a great walk!!! I hope you enjoyed your pool time after! :)

  36. What an incredible blue sky! It's just beautiful, Sierra Rose, and so are the monkey flowers! Your pictures are gorgeous!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch
