As for Ivy, she’s proved to be quite the adaptable pooch. She was perhaps most surprised at sleeping with us in our snug little tent along the Pecos River. What a concept! Night sounds of the rushing river, the wind kicking up, and owls calling in the pines.
And now, here in a cabin at Bruce Spruce Ranch near Pagosa Springs, Colorado, Ivy and Ross encountered three elk at dawn. Biggest doggies she’d ever seen. Yes, Ivy, we’re not in Maryland.
Next stop: Durango! Only cloud on our horizon is worrisome news from home regarding Ross’s mom who turned 96 last week, and has taken a turn. Please hold her in your thoughts.
