Summer is coming, and it’s time to start making vacation plans! Whether it’s a long weekend, or a long week, we all could use some time away from the daily grind. And that goes for our pups as well.
On a couple of my favorite blogs, the topic of National Parks visits and dogs has come up. Although National Parks don’t allow dogs in most areas, it’s still possible to visit some of the classic parks, like Yosemite, and bring your furry buddy along. It will take some research, and a little resourcefulness, but it can be done (and legally too). : )
For instance, we took Toki to Yosemite and the surrounding areas, and managed to hit a lot of the highlights – including the Nelder Grove Sequoias, the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad, Bridal Veil Falls, Tuolumne Meadows, and nearby Mono Lake.
Some of you might not know that I have another blog, called The Weekender Blog. This blog focuses on outdoor adventures and unusual weekend escapes. Because I’ve been spending more time on The Daily Toki, The Weekender Blog has been somewhat neglected lately . . . I’m sure I’ll pick it up again soon, but in the meantime, I’ll be sharing some of my past posts and photography from the Weekender Blog here on The Daily Toki.
One of those posts was a series that I wrote about our amazing, three-day whirlwind, dog-friendly road trip through Southern California. These are some of the photos from my Weekender road trip story. For more details on the ultimate so-cal, pup-friendly roadtrip, check out my Yosemite series: The Great Sierra Circuit Part I (The Ultimate So-Cal Roadtrip), Part II (Yosemite Valley to Mono Lake), and Part III (Shooting it up – with camera – in the Alabama Hills). It includes info on dog-friendly destinations and tips for traveling in the Yosemite-Sierra Mountains area, and as an added bonus, you can check out pics of Toki as a tiny pup!
. . . Also, as a reminder, Sunday is the last day to enter the leash giveaway. Check out our review and giveaway guidelines, and enter today by commenting on any post this week or on The Daily Toki facebook page.
Have a great weekend, and happy adventuring!!
