I just got back from a weekend backpacking trip to South Mountain (NC) with my chocolate lab, Coco, best friend Andy, and his son Logan. We had fantastic weather and a lot of fun (video clips to follow soon). Here's a great picture of me and Coco stopping to pose in front of the mountains - what a beautiful background (see my updated blog banner?). Notice too how Coco is wearing her Kelty K-9 Chuckwagon pack. She carried in all her gear and food and carried out all her trash.
