Foto Fur-iday – Triple H Camping

We had our second horse/human/hound (Triple H) camping trip of the season last Sunday-Monday. We’ll let the pictures tell the story.

Aaaahhhh … feels good to be back in the mountains.

Why lie on a man-made bed when you’ve got mountain turf?

Logan likes the ground, I prefer to be more civilized.

The horses were almost right in camp with us for the evening. For you horse people out there, don’t worry, they weren’t left unattended with that hay net.

Forest fire smoke kept the sun from heating things up.

Until next week …

 

On the Road Again

This Fur-iday you find us on the road to a weekend camping adventure. We were supposed to head out on Tuesday but a big storm came rampaging through Alberta, complete with special weather statements and warnings from Environment Canada, and we decided it was best not to be camped in the middle of it. Good thing too because the winds were just two kilometres per hour shy of hurricane strength out here on the farm and there was some broken tree cleanup required on Thursday.

Luckily, Sid came out the other side of the storm unscathed so we are off to the mountains today! We’ll tell you all about it next Fur-iday.

Have a great weekend!

Sad Day

We lost a family member today. Twenty-year-old Nat the cat finally used up all nine of her lives. 

The news has us all feeling a little homesick. We wish we’d been there to say goodbye. But we’ll honour her passing with this moment of silence and write more another day.

In the meanwhile, a few photos…
