High country slickrock

We spent the last few days in out little pop-up camper out in the Needles area of Canyonlands. We took Leo up some of the high monuments and let him climb around. He is fearless and a good climber although he still needs spotting. We got in about 4 miles with him the first day, up to some nice high slickrock but in a 40 mph wind which was quite unpleasant.

We're now in Arches, which is spectaular but full of crowds. Leo's two speeds are a bit more extreme - running as fast as he can or sitting in the sand making sand waterfalls. Its a bit hotter here, and no wind, which means really hot! Moab is growing like crazy with biking and 4 wheeling being the popular sports these days.
