A few more mountain pics

Hello, it's me, Miley. Mommy has been working a lot lately but I am forcing her to post a few pics. She has got a Monday report deadline to meet so no fieldwork for me this weekend.

I love working in the mountains and getting away from the heat. There are so many little streams to walk through as well as the aptly named Mountain Ditch (dates to 1922) in the Absaroka Mountains. My paws are frequently wet. Mommy made me cross the Little Popo Agie River south of Lander in the Wind River Mountains last week. I had cool water above my tummy, it was invigorating. Mommy had water almost up to her knees -she had to drain her boots afterwards. We found a little abandoned gold mine (cabins, prospecting pits, adit, etc.) several miles from the South Pass City Mining District ( which is far larger than South Pass City itself. Mommy took a picture of me standing by an adit (horizontal shaft) which was totally hidden by a tree. This was my first trip to the South Zone of Shoshone National Forest.

Happy summer, Miley


  1. It sounds like you're having a wonderful summer and staying nice and cool too, Miley! We're happy for you!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  2. I like the sound of those creeks and rivers, Miley. What fun that would be to mess around in the water keeping cool.

  3. Hey! We're back in mountain country! Well, almost! Florida was fun, really fun, but we're glad to be back in our element. Now if Moma would just take us for some hikes!

    Enjoy what's left of summer. The colors will be coming soon,
    Jake and Fergi

  4. You are a very brave Dale! Water up to my belly is quite scarey for me. I never have taken to the water like some of our relatives.:>(
    Smooches, BabyRD

    Oh Miley I would be running right through that water with you. Sounds like your mommy is waaayyyy more physically fit than our mommy. She is kinda chubby & quite slow!
    Happy summer to you too! WelshieHugs, Hootie

  5. Hello Miley

    You have some wonderful countryside to roam around in. We hope your Mummy's work does not interfere too much with your leisure activities.

    Have a good weekend.
