We rode for a while passing more and more snow. Cooper was awake and alert for a while with the excitement of playing in the snow. When we rode on the temperature was chilly but refreshing to breathe deeply. Cooper sniffed the air endlessly as I know I would have too if I was a dog.
The scenery was stunning. There was no way to take it all in and as I view the pictures I have to say, pictures don't do it justice. What a beautiful place to be. There was wild life there just trying to conduct their day as were we. We saw deer as close to us as perhaps 100 feet. Cooper watched them cross the road without a noise. I guess you could say he was speechless.
We had Cooper pose at one of the most beautiful sights we could see. Usually we don't have to tie him because he always stays were he's told to stay, but this time he was near a ledge. Jesse tied him to the tree roots. NEVER take chances you can't recover from if something goes wrong. Cooper is safe and I got a beautiful picture of him in front of Crater Lake.
