Waking up in the mountains....

This ball toss goes out to my furpal Sophie!

A late drive last Friday feeling much better and so excited to make a little trip. We woke up in the mountains Saturday morning to warm temps, and soft snows!
Shorts and boots! Ready? Let's play!
Orange ball throws... recall practice...all more fun when I can jump around in the SNOW!

Dad....the flip flop guy..hey, throw my ball! Such a teaser dad is!


After I pooped out, my human's rode the lifts to hike a bit for some swooshing through July corn snow.

Friends that had been out since 7:30am, knew where the good snow was! Following friends down the ski hill.

Lots of ski wax and big smiles!

Not a breeze, just warm temps and great views.

Post-ski, and more play with moi, mom and dad headed out on a little mtn. bike pedal... They found some sweet spots. This cabin has Caples Lake views.

Caples Lake, late day sun.

We camped with friends Saturday eve, and Sunday arrived quickly...

Early afternoon Sunday..and with a short drive North on Hwy 88... I could barely contain myself.... lake swimming!

Mom and I hung out by this refreshing little lake while dad took a road bike pedal up Blue Lakes Road in Eldorado National Forest.

A beautiful area. We headed for home sweet home after the temps had cooled... A brief get-away, yet so enjoyable!
Happy 4th to my friends!

  18. Thanks for sending that snowy goodness our way, Sierra! Nothing like a little ice in July. ;)

  19. Well, a week late, but again we just got this today in Google Reader.

    Somehow flip flops and snow just don't seem to compute well, but we sure would love to put our bare paws in that snow. It is just so very warm here. And then a refreshing dip in the water - you are one very lucky girl!!! Hope we get your next post in a more timely fashion so we aren't so late in commenting. Know that we always want to be here to visit.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
