Hello everyone, it’s your favorite dog blogger, Makena!
We are on the road again!!! While my parents are busy driving from Wyoming to Yuma, Arizona, I’ll get you all caught up. We have finished up with our fourth and final summer at Luton’s Teton Cabins, just five miles east of Grand Teton National Park. Once again, we were the last work camper couple to leave. My dad steam cleans all the carpets, so it takes a while to get thru all 14 cabins and the lodge. I have enjoyed my time here, because I can run around off-leash on the property.
The one problem, for me, with being the last to leave is the weather. It always snows before we leave, and it gets cold. It was 17 degrees when we pulled out this year. But it sure is pretty! This was our view from Luton’s on Saturday, October 5, when we left. It had snowed the day before.
I think I caught a cold or something, because I’ve gotten sick the last two mornings before we left. My parents had to wash my favorite blankets two days in a row, and I’ve been sneezing a lot. But now that we are on the road again, I am doing better. I spend all day in my crate in the truck, so I have been getting a lot of rest. It’s my “safe place.” My parents say I’m an excellent traveler.
We are going back to Westwind RV and Golf Resort in Yuma, Arizona. I’m looking forward to the warm weather and sunshine! My parents told me they will have new jobs this year, and will only be working two days a week. Yay! That means more time for me! They will have an orientation day on October 15th, so I’m sure my mom will get back to blogging and have more information on their new jobs after that time. And their friends Tom and Ellen will be working at Westwind this year. They stopped over at our house a month ago, and brought their new puppy, Duffy, with them. He promptly sniffed my butt and ate all of my food. I don’t like him….
Before I go, I’m going to post some more photos of the Tetons that my mom took in May, and September. The Tetons are a beautiful place, and I hope all of my readers can someday visit the park. Good-bye Tetons, looking forward to new adventures next summer in Alaska! Here’s a view from Oxbow Bend at the beginning and end of our season.
Jenny Lake is a popular area in the park for hiking. This is a view from an overlook. In May, the lake was still frozen.
