Road Trip

06 May

Where are we Going?My younger person is home from school this week and today he and my person told me to get in the car with them. I like jumping in the car but I always get a little nervous about where I might be jumping back out.

We headed down the street and we made a turn. Well, this isn’t the way to the vet. I like the vet. They give me loves and treats there.

And then I got really worried. This is the way to the dog hotel! I don’t like going to the dog hotel. Maybe we should turn around and go back home.

But we kept going. Hey, wait a minute! We don’t ride this far in the car when we go to the dog hotel. Where are we going?

We rode and rode, and finally my person stopped the car. And there was no vet and there was no dog hotel. We were in a big parking lot.

And then we crossed the street.

Fay Canyon Trail Sign

A brand new trail! I hope my people brought lots of water because there are an awful lot of bushes that I need to leave messages on.

After my people assured me we had lots of water with us we headed up the trail.

We walked for a ways through lots of trees and then we climbed some rocks – and look what I saw!

My younger person went exploring some more, so I thought I might too.

But before I could get very far my younger person came back.

I could sit here forever.

What? It’s time to go back.

I sure hope there’s some treats at the end of this trip.

      Thanks Blueberry’s human. You and Blueberry should come up to Sedona and go on a hike with me and my person sometime.

    What a great trip! Your area is so different from ours…but one thing is the same…lots of outdoor trails/parks for a dog to explore!

    • Bongo

      Kat n Collies, anyplace is good when is has lots of outdoor places for dogs to have fun.

    Oh, so many good things all at once! Car, new trails, younger person, incredible view … new plants to water! Only one thing left now: FISH!

    • Bongo

      May 6, 2013 at 11:54 pm

      Marina, there wasn’t any water on this trail- just places where lots of water runs when it rains – so I guess I’ll have to look in those places for some dried fish.

    The car is tricky like that. It takes you places, but they’re not always the places you WANT to be taken. You lucked out with this ride. What a beautiful, fun hike!

    Love and licks,

      Thanks Cupcake. I wonder if we can figure out how to control those cars better – so they only always take us to fun places.

      Maybe Molly should come with me on my next road trip.

      Benny & Lily, the smells were awesome because they were all new. And I added a few myself.

    Ooooh, beautiful! I’m so jealous of everyone’s great hiking photos on today’s MM! My younger brother is in AZ–I should suggest this place to him!

    Bongo is quite the handsome boy, by the way! And I love his name. 🙂

    I love reading about your adventures Bongo! I just wish we had some of those great trails around us!

      Thanks Melissa. I guess I’ll have to keep going on new trail adventures, so you can enjoy them through me.

    Phew! *wipingforeheadwithapaw* I’m glad that you didn’t have to go to the Dog Hotel Bongo!
    Wow!!! What a breathtaking scenery that is! Yes! I could have sit there forever if I would have been there!!! You’re so lucky to have those amazing place close to your place! I’d love to visit Sedona someday! 🙂

    • Bongo

      May 7, 2013 at 9:51 pm

      Kevin, I sure wish you could visit Sedona and we could visit all the trails together. That would be so much fun. And I’m sure glad I didn’t get sent to the dog hotel this time.

    I love that trail! I need to get my people to bring me back to Sedona so I can hike it again!

    • Bongo

      May 7, 2013 at 9:52 pm

      Lola, I think the first time I met you – on your blog – was when you were hiking this trail.

      • Lola

        May 8, 2013 at 6:48 am

        I think you’re right. Sedona has such great trails. Have you ever hiked West Fork? I think it’s the best trail I’ve ever taken. Ever. In the Whole World!

      • Bongo

        May 8, 2013 at 6:04 pm

        Lola, both my people have hiked West Fork, but they’ve never taken me. I’ve got to get them to take me there because I hear it’s got water.

      • Lola

        May 10, 2013 at 5:23 pm

        Lots of lovely water. It’s the best!

    Now that’s a great road trip Bongo. My road trip today was to the library….booorring! Lola

    • Bongo

      May 7, 2013 at 9:59 pm

      Lola, I won’t trade road trips this time. The library does sound boring – unless you can find people to give you loves.

    Looks like you guys discovered a whole new trail to explore, we hope you have lots of fun on this new trail…Woof Woof from Penny!!!

      Alex, Trish, and Penny, it was definitely a great trail. I hope I get to go back there again.

    A new trail Bongo and you had such a beautiful view at the top. We would love to sit there and look too. Too bad there wasn’t a little stream for a splash!

    • Bongo

      May 7, 2013 at 10:03 pm

      Lexie and Mica, that’s the only thing this trail was missing. Water. I think it has streams when it rains hard, but then I’d probably be so wet I wouldn’t care.

    Wonderful photos. I love to take my dogs hiking along with my camera.

    • Bongo

      Thanks Susan. My person won’t ever leave her camera at home. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

        May 9, 2013 at 4:13 am

        I’m learning that every time I forget my camera I wish I had it with me. So now I take it everywhere.


    May 8, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    That sure is a beautiful place to go hiking!!!! Wow! I’d sit there a long time!

    • Bongo

      May 8, 2013 at 9:44 pm

      Max, it really was a great hike. I could have sat there all day.

    You had really exciting adventures with your younger person! Beautiful landscapes and beautiful photos! My favourite pic is, of course, that one in which your head is to be seen in the right bottom corner! I have the feeling that I can see exactly the same scenery as you!

    • Bongo

      May 9, 2013 at 9:13 pm

      Kolytyi, I’m so glad you looked over my shoulder and shared the scene with me.

    Wow Bongo! We collies are jealous… what a beautiful place for a walk! It looks like one could walk forever…. you are one luck dog! 🙂

    • Bongo

      May 12, 2013 at 10:21 pm

      Collies, I got to go to an even better place today. It had a swimming hole! I’ll do a post on it in a couple days.
