About this picture

We started off full of energy on our backpacking trip. Dasha the labrador bursting with excitement, running up and down the trail. We hiked up and down and up and down the huge rolling green coastal mountains that are iconic to central California. We trekked through thick forests and crossed icy rivers that were waist deep. Dasha was no longer dancing, she was chugging and I had to take the weight off her dog-pack and carry it in mine. A couple hours before sunset, we found a perfect spot by the water to set up camp. Together we spent the rest of the afternoon chilling with the trees.
