Head for the Hills

3/6/12


Jeff and I took a break from the world this weekend and went up to his family's cabin in California's Gold Country. The cabin was a big part of Jeff's childhood and triggers lots of happy memories whenever he returns. Our dogs love coming up here, too. They are free to run around the woods and explore without leashes. I imagine all the new sights and smells must be exciting for them. 

There was a bit of snow on the ground when we arrived, but by the end of the weekend it had all melted. Despite the warm temperatures and bright sun during the day, the weather in the mountains is chilly in the mornings and evenings this time of year. We had a fire going most of the weekend to keep the cabin nice and cozy. 

We've decided to spend more time exploring California on the weekends and taking road trips, and hopefully this will include more trips to the cabin. Ever since we moved back we feel like there are things we want to take advantage of that are only a relatively short drive away. 

While at the cabin, I filmed Little Joe doing something I've never seen him do before. Is he trying to bury a treat with his head? Do all dogs do this? Once I took the treat away from him, he just laid down and went to sleep.

  1. Dogs are the best, aren't they? My husband's family's Beagle often "buries" her treats in the carpet. She digs and nudges all around it, leaves it there, and then comes back for it later. Maybe he confused the animal print of the pillow with leaves or something? Hope all is well back in Cali, I'm envious of all your guacamole eating!

  5. I love getting away for quick trips to places that are within driving distance, especially when it feels like it is worlds apart from my normal routine. I also really enjoy the peace and quiet of being in the mountains; where the air is fresh and you can see the stars. Plus, letting our pup run free is fun for both her and us!
