mazy climbs mt. atalaya ~ santa fe, nm ~ august 14, 2011

we took a sunset hike up atalaya. mazy’s pretty old for a dog, maybe 13 even, and there are times when it seems like she might be showing her age. put her on a hiking trail, though, and it’s clear that she is still in her prime. she trotted right up the mountain, lickety-split, while tim and adam and I huffed and puffed and paused to catch our breath. this picture was taken at the top of the trail, and she looks as happy and peaceful as ever. I love this dog!

FOOD PARTY OR DIE!

one of the dangers of the endless road trip is that whenever we visit friends and/or family, folks are inclined to show us a good time by making us a delicious meal or taking us to their favorite restaurant. this can lead to a non-stop food party. and while i surely enjoy all of the wonderful, tasty, satisfying food, there have definitely been times — just a few, mind you — when i have been inclined to over indulge. damn you herrell’s!

after coming off of our latest vermont food party, some physical activity was definitely in order. there are only so many blocks of grafton extra-sharp cheddar cheese seconds one can down without beginning to feel a bit lactose intolerant. so. we headed from quechee, vt to the northern end of the white mountains of new hampshire for a few days of camping. the cold temperatures helped us burn through some calories, but really, we had a lot of making up to do. first up, an exhilarating and bracing 14-mile bike ride (7 miles uphill; 7 miles down) along the franconia notch bike trail. we stopped and paid our tributes to the old man of the mountain and watched a group of school kids swim (in 50 degree temperature mind you!) in echo lake. crazy kids and their crazy music!

next, a 7-mile hike to and from the zealand falls hut. if that’s not cardiovascular exercise, i don’t know what is. and happily, my 39-year old body leapt to both challenges with nary a complaint. not that i should be overly proud of my accomplishment. mazy’s 84 years old in human years and she did the hike naked and without shoes!

so now that that’s all over with, i say bring on the next food party!
