Spring Hiking

During March the snow started to melt so we were able to start doing more hiking. This is a hike out Pump House Wash which is really close to our house. As long as we get good snowfall and summer rains this is one of the few creeks in Flagstaff that will have at least a little water all year long.

Some parts get deep enough for Zephyr to swim in. Here he is doing his Blue Heron imitation.

From the parking lot it's about a mile and a half to where the canyon gets a little rocky and bushy. But, there are lots of other trails that link with this and go off into the forest so you can really make the hike as long as you like.

Zephyr loves to play in the water and here was trying to bite the splashes.

A handsome little beast!

Just past here is were the canyon gets rocky. Most people don't come back here so this is one our favorite off leash play spots.

Zephyr likes to play in the water a little bit.

And then get a major case of the Zoomies!

What a happy dog!

Afterwards he warmed up in the sun for awhile and let me take some photos.

He even did some nice stays so I could take some timed photos of us together.

Until he got bored.

And decided it was time to play some more!

Put a leash on the greyhound! Just kidding, I'm a cheater too! :-)
