Utah Camping

Matt and his girlfriend, Rebecca and their dogs, Moki and Luna went camping in Utah for almost a week. They had a fantastic time. They made it their goal to never look at a clock the entire time they were gone. It was even getting dark when they were coming back from one of their hikes because they were having a great time and had no idea how long they had been gone. I thought I would share some of his pictures with you.

Not sure what Rebecca was attempting to be here, but it's a cute picture and what a great little spot!

Matt said that these formations went on forever....you could just keep walking and walking. Isn't it awesome?


Little Moki taking a peak outside. They really did have to be careful with her because of her size. She would have made a tasty snack for a big bird or a wild animal.

Matti and his faithful friend and travel companion, Luna.

So pretty....makes me want to take a trip out there.

These three longhorns came charging at them. Matt said it was pretty scary. They came really close to them and then just took off. They were sweatin' a bit after that encounter!

I'm a dog, I'm a workin' dog, I'm a hard workin' dog....wasn't that from Sesame Street or one of those shows? Every time I see Luna with her backpack on I think of that song!

Moki travels in a variety of carriers, but this is the new one they bought especially for this trip. Sometimes she would sleep inside and sometimes she would peek her head out. Here she is just "hangin" out" HAHA and posing for a picture.

Could you imagine doing this? Uh, I think I would have to skip this move!

I love this one!

Make it a really great day and be sure to do something really nice for yourself!

I'm not a camper but I do love the outdoors, and this is beautiful. How great they include the dogs in their journeys.

Looks like one very exciting camping trip. If it were me, however, I might have chosen a slightly shorter walking stick.

These are so gorgeous!!! We used to live in New Mexico and those four states (AZ, UT, NM, and CO) have some of the most stunning nature I have a every seen - especially if you like the desert and rocks. Love the dogs!! Especially that little one looking out of the carrier!! Love, Silke

Hi Kathy,
What a beautiful place, is'nt it wonderful that the kids get out and explore so many places, I love all the wonderful shapes and colours in the rock. I definitely could not do that move over a chasm I cannot stand on a chair without getting dizzy, so glad they had a good time the dogs too.
Love Jillxx

Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. We've never been to Utah. I hope the working dog gets extra treats after lugging that backpack around. The little guy is so cute in his carrier.

Utah is a beautiful state. I've hiked many canyons there. Looks like fun. Nice to see people having great adventures. Especially with their doggies.
