Backpacking in Emigrant Wilderness

September 5th, 2007

Kepler avoiding the sunI had a great 3 day weekend in the Emigrant Wilderness camping with Kepler, Andy, and his two high school buddies. Let me just say that Andy is not human — he sprints with a pack that weighs more than he does uphill.

My favorite part was chilling at Deer Lake, eating yummy fish, and enjoying a massive fire. It was nice not thinking about work for a little while.

Kepler did manage to cut his right front leg at some point (I imagine it was due to him running down a cliff-face after a ball), but he had a good time. I even cut my old sleeping bag in half for him to sleep in — which was better than him trying to crawl into mine like the last time we went camping in the Desolation Wilderness outside Tahoe.

    Hi, Reza.

    Happy from Beagle here.

    I stumbled on your site and dig your Vizla. Seeing Kepler made me smile … which is no small task, as I had to put my 15-year-old Golden Retriever to sleep two weeks ago.

    Anyhow, thanks. Hope you’re well.

    some sleeping bags are waterproof and weatherproof too, they are nice for camping outside the house ;*”
