1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So we took our first hike of the season on Sat. we did the Mt. Sanitas loop in Boulder, took just under 3 hrs with some breaks getting up and at the top, we flew down the other side.

at the start of the hike we went up and over what i will call a tall hill not so much a real mountain.

views of Boulder

Sierra and Jack did very well on the Heal comand when we stoped!

more of Boulder

our break at the top.

snow peaks!

jack ready to go

he wanted to hide.

Sierra did not want her picture taken, she would not stand still. we hope to get in a few more "small" hikes before heading out with Eddy!

Great pictures Jen! Looks like a lot of fun! I can't believe those snow peaks!

It's a husky thing... you wouldn't understand.

Nice! Looks like Sierra was having a grand old time. Seems like the snow is still packed in the 9,000' area. I could really go for an epic traverse right about now.

we had a slow go with Sierra getting up the dirt path, both dogs were getting hot and it was only 10:30am. once we got into the trees and rocks Sierra became a happy rock hopper almost sending me to the ground trying to keep up with her! oh and when we hit that rock from last year (remember the one Ken had to carry her around/off of) well she STILL would not go around it! this time I looked around and found a side path off the trail that we took! she really does light up when hiking, jack was even super happy. we got so many comments about how great our dogs looked and how pretty and handsome they were I should have counted! we were proud parents Smile we were up at Echo at 10,500ft on sunday in the SNOW!!!! it was really coming down, so i would say that yes about 9,000ft it is still snowpacked.
