Drake & Paige in Yosemite
« on: July 19, 2007, 02:07:11 am »
Hey guys, hope all is well with everybody and their doggies.  I don't get much time to get on this site much these days with the baby and work keeping me so busy.  We were up in Yosemite about a month ago and it was a blast.  We stayed at the Tenaya Lodge in Yosemite where Sarah was having work meetings.  While she was in meetings, the three of us hiked the valley floor.  Well.... actually I was trying to maneuver a baby stroller with one hand and walk a 130 lb. Newf with the other, constantly dodging European and Japanese tourists who wanted to photograph Drake with his Doggles and saddlebags on and ask 1000 questions about him, stopping for numerous bottle feedings (for both the dog and baby), all while having a wonderful time in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  It began to rain so we headed out, but I had to stop and get a pic of the three of us at the lookout point, which you see below.  What a shot!  You can barely see Half Dome in the distance.  Got several great pictures that day as you can see below.  Hope to have more adventures in Yosemite with Paige and Drake in the future, hopefully Sarah will join us too

Great pics~!  Paige is sure looking cute, and Drake too~!  There's nothing like trying to walk or hike pushig a stroller and holding a leash  :)  I haven't been to Yosemite since January this year, but hope to get there soon.  Haven't brought the dogs, since they're only allowed on teh valley floor, and we like to hike the trails.

Thanks guys, yes Paige is becoming a little person now.  She does belly laughs and is a week or so away from crawling, I can't believe how fast she's grown.  Drake hasn't quite bonded with her yet, but once she starts to interact with him, i.e. dropping him food, that will change.  Yosemite is so amazing, you all have to go there.  That last picture of the three of us says it all, virgin nature, so beautiful and majestic, never to be ruined by human greed.  I love that place!

Great pics! Drake looks like a professional hiker with his saddlebags and doggles. I can see why he was such a tourist photo opportunity!

I am so glad to see that you guys finally made it to Yosemite. It is to bad that we don' live there anymore as that is one of Bear's all time favorite places- especially in the winter. You all look great!

Good to see your crew I was wondering how Drake & Paige were doing i.e. if Drake had bonded with his sister yet. Anyway both look great, and its great to see them. Tim
