My first trip to Colorado in the fall was also my first trip with two dogs. Storm was new to the family and just under 3 months old. I had just finished a project and decided to take my time getting to Colorado.
We spent the night in Las Vegas, just off the strip at the super dog friendly hotel chain, La Quinta. Seriously, I can not say enough good things about this hotel chain. I’ve stayed in a La Quinta in 7 different states. And it’s always a pleasant stay.
The next morning we got up early and headed to Zion National Park, with my handy America the Beautiful pass, and a list of dog friendly trails (one trail) we found our way to Zion and walked the bike trail that allows dogs. Pa’rus Trail.
We then made our way to Bryce National Park to walk the along the top. Again the only dog friendly trail. But the three of us loved it because it got us out of the car on our long drive to Dillon, CO.
From there we hauled it to get to Dillon, having a bit of a scare when we couldn’t find a gas station for hours. But we made it safely to our destination around midnight. To get up early the next morning to meet our friends at the Old Dillon Reservoir.
This trail is just so nice and easy, yet stunning in the fall. We met up with our friends @one.chaotic.pack and had some adorable puppy playtime when both Storm and Norway were super adorable puppies.
Definitely one of my favorite photos of Frankie.
Adventuring together from the beginning.
A swimmer from the beginning.
The pups love hammocking. After they figured out it was safe.
Puppies, such adorable puppies. From here we hit the road at went to the super dog friendly national park, Black Canyon of the Gunnison. We went on three or four short trails there. All of them with spectacular views. If you ever want more formation from our travels please email us at email@example.com.
