As you probably know by now, I took my mom and Bailie on a road trip to BlogPaws in Las Vegas this year. It is about a 24 hour drive, LONG! The first day to Denver was sooo boring! Nothing but fields and fields. The second day was an adventure. Mom never really thought the whole driving through and didn’t realize that from Denver to Vegas is almost all mountains. She also forgot about how cold it would be and was wearing shorts and a t-shirt as we drove through everything from sunshine to rain, snow, sleet, ice, and hail storms, so needless to say we rarely got out for photos! Too cold for Mom!
Not long after leaving Denver we were in the mountains and there was snow! We passed by all the ski resorts and even got to step out and use the bathroom in Aspen…I was disappointed as they did not have “golden” poop bags for dogs. I thought Aspen was for the rich and famous, but I guess they use the same bags as us less rich and famous pups. Look at that beautiful blue sky. Bailie and I have been through the Smoky Mountains on a Florida road trip, so mountains are not new to us, but the snow on them was.
Next in Utah we got into bizarre rock formations and canyons. We did make a stop here for a quick photo as it was a bit warmer than up in the mountains. These rock things are amazing and so many of them. As you can see, there isn’t any grass around. There was no grass around after the mountains which caused an issue. Bailie would not go to the bathroom. She held it all day until we found a patch of grass at the hotel. We went through this when it first snowed in November, now she has to figure out that sand or rock is okay to use too! Silly puppy!
We arrived in Vegas just after 6pm, part one of the road trip – complete. It is a lot like Florida but also different. It smells different too, and there are wabbits all over the place! In this photo I just spotted one. Bailie and I woke Mom up at 4am so we wouldn’t miss anything during our stay. We were told not to leave the hotel grounds until after daylight as the area is full of Coyotes out hunting. We peed quickly and went out again at 6am for walk.
We took another photo after breakfast. The area and the hotel are just so beautiful! Those are a few beautiful shots from our road trip to Vegas. On a fun note, I have now updated my states visited list on my about me page to 14! Bailie is checking in at 13 (she is missing Wisconsin) and Katie has nine. I like to keep my paws traveling!
