The Snows Of July . . . .
 
Pete and Ruby took a hike yesterday, July 7, up Ptarmigan Cirque in the Highwood Pass of Alberta's Kananaskis Range, not too far from Calgary.

Lots of snow still there.

Ruby (left) and Pete enjoy the view and the chance to cool down. I was wearing a t-shirt, shorts and running shoes and was still hot!!

Flowers were blooming where the snow had disappeared.

Ruby looks back the way we came. This is probably about 8,200 feet above sea level and a popular, short hike.

Below, at home, Pete watches Polly, our two-footed, handicapped cat, intently. She'd caught four mice in an hour from a hole coming out of our deck and he knows it. Polly has her front feet but her back feet have been amputated.

I have to say Pete does know how to cool himself off! As always beautiful pups and awesome scenery Rick.

What lucky dogs you have to live in such a beautiful place to roam free.
Great photos and beautiful dogs! I sure wish we still had some snow. My dog is having a real hard time with the heat.

Awesome pics, Rick! Just what I needed to cool off! It's been bloody hot here.... :o

Love the snow pics--and Pete's way-back-legs as he cools his belly! Wish I were there! :laughing:

Snow, oh I am so jealous of that lovely cool snow. Gorgeous photos, as always. :)

Same here! That snow looks beautiful and my dog would love to play in it.
We did not get very much snow last winter.

A few more from a weekend walk . . . .

Pete heads up Sentinel trail, west of Longview, Alberta, inside Kananaskis Country . . .

Pete takes a break amid some some Alberta Wild Roses . . .

At home, Ruby at sunset walking the perimeter pathway around our fence I keep cut down. The tall grass covers about 2.5 acres and I keep about 1.5 acres cut as lawn.
