Below the Rim

Rosy: Wait a minute, didn't Daddy hike below the rim too??

Jakey: Yeah, he did...but he got our permission to go and hike with Murphy and Stanley's Daddy.  Mama just grabbed her camera and snuck out of the wheelie house to join Aunty C!! 

Sunny: I could have sworn I heard her say she was leaving Jakey, you must not have heard her!

Rosy: Ok, you two! The thing is, dogs aren't allowed in the actual "canyon" part of Bryce Canyon. This year, Aunty C talked Mama into doing the hike into the canyon and, as you might imagine, she took lots and lots of pictures. Being the good girl that I am,  I agreed we would let her share this week and again next week on Nature Friday!

 There sure is a bunch of pretty red lumps and bumps in the canyon...and look at the little tree!
How pawesome, Mama found some Angel Greta flowers!!

The green of the tree sure is pretty against the red rocks

 WOW....look how big this part of the canyon is!!

 Look Sunny, those are people at the bottom of that HUMUNGOUS canyon!



 Jakey: I don't know....I still don't think Mama had my permission to go!
Rosy: Shush Jakey and look at the pretty pictures!

 Another tall tree in the canyon.....

It's nice to see the blue skies after all the smoke we drove through to get here, isn't it you two? Look how pretty the sky was above the canyon, hardly a cloud in site!!

Look at all those trees down there. It's like a forest is growing in the canyon!

In fact, we'll get into more of the specifics next week, but Mama says she thinks that IS a (Dixie or Bryce) Forest down there!

Mama sure did get to see some beautimous views!!


Rosy: Now, on behalf of every puppy here Mama, I do believe we are owned a WHOLE BUNCH of rewards for being so nice and letting you go on your hike Below the Rim!!!

Show us your nature.  Flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey, any nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE  to go to our Hoppity Page.


  1. wow that are the best photos ever! how beautiful your land is.... we have to see it once with our own eyes.... oh we wish it would be possible..

  2. Those photos are awesome, what a stunning place.
    And thank goodness you all escaped from the smoke. Are the skies clear again back home yet? Gail and I have been so worried about all our friends in the fire hit states.
    Toodle pip!

  3. LOL! We have a photo of the same lavender flowers on our post today from a hike up here in our part of the country! Glad your Mom enjoyed her hike and you guys let her go with her friend.

    OMD - will you look at that place?!! What a joy to see, even from this distance. Thanks for letting mama share them! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Dear ones...I must tell you Mom's are sneaky...BUT since they have the thumbs you must learn to just go with the flow.
    Personally I'm over the moon happy that Momma took that hike w/ or w/o prior approval.
    The photos are absolutely breathtaking...thank goodness we don't have to chose our favorite.
    Hugs Aunty HiC
    PS I love your bench pose.

  6. What an amazing place! I keep expecting to see the Roadrunner with the Coyote chasing him!

  7. Beautiful and so is the canyon. You pups are the best. I would have loved to go with you.

    Have a woof woof day and weekend. My best to your peeps. ♥

  8. the view below the rim is spectacular and I think my favoirite is the tall tree growing in the small space between two walls of red rocks. amazing views. I assume no dogs allowed is for the safety of the dogs.. so be glad mama left you safe with daddy

  9. That really was amazing and I'm glad you sweeties stayed up top!

  10. Thanks for letting your mom share her beautiful hike with us. We sure hope you all were well compensated for having to be left behind.

  11. Nature can be amazing or deadly or both. Be careful if you get near those steep canyons! We are also glad y'all got out of the fire/smoke zone for a while. We had it hear 2 years ago for the first time in recent history, and it was terrible. Made me appreciate what folks go through who live in areas where forest fires happen more often.

  12. The canyons are beautiful. But the pictures with you three are the best!

  13. I agree, you more than earned your treats! That was very generous of you to let your momma and daddy BOTH go hiking without you.

  14. Sure glad you let the mama go even if they didn't let you guys tour the canyon. What a beautiful place.

  15. Isn't that beautiful! It was nice of you all to let Mama go on that nice hike, and we are sure she rewarded you accordingly! :)

  16. I love the photos. I was going to get all worked up about dogs not being able to go but then I saw the cliff and I think it would be better if you stayed home on this one.

  17. Lady is very proud of your mom for doing the dive this year!


We love to read your peemails!!
