Tuolumne 2011

We took our annual August climbing trip to Tuolumne this year. Unlike years past there was some weather. Rain. Had lots of fun anyway meeting many of our climbing friends up there.

The Hound: Aug 2011

Luna is five years old now. She has calmed down and grown to trust all of us. She can leap over tall barriers and crash through bushes and fences in pursuit of tennis balls and loves to do so till she is so tired she can't stand up. But, she also likes to flop down next to you and get a good ear scratching now.

Ready for a ball to be launched
