Escape to the Druid Stones

In anticipation of our upcoming move, Josh, Toki and I have been hitting up all of our favorite spots in and outside of Los Angeles.  No greatest hits tour would be complete without a visit to the Sierras.  It’s our favorite spot for rock climbing, and Toki has been accompanying us there since she was a puppy.

This weekend, we headed to Bishop, our home base for weekend climbing and bouldering trips.  We met up with some friends of ours for a day at the magical Druid Stones.  It’s an area perched on a steep hillside above town, with dramatic granite boulders and fantastic views.  The 2,000 foot climb from the valley floor is enough to deter the crowds.  And the strenuous hike makes it a great place to bring your pup for the day.  By the time you get to the top, your dog will probably be content to rest in the shade while you tackle your favorite boulder problems.  The lack of crowds also means that your pup can usually have the run of the place to herself.

Normally, I’d be climbing the rocks with everyone else, but this weekend, I stuck with Toki’s routine.  We found a comfy spot and watched everyone else climb, we played around on the rocks,  and when we got hot, we lounged in the shade and ate snacks.

It’s not bad, being Toki . . .

  1. Ack! You think I would have learned by now to copy my post replies before I hit submit in case they disappear like the one I just wrote did.

    I will make it short and sweet the second time…glad you are back and happy for your baby news. I was worried that you were really sick 🙂 I am undergoing some major changes too. Check out my last couple of blog posts to see what.

      Very cool news about the job change and new business! It’s pretty amazing that you can use your dog skills and web savvy to pursue work that fulfills you. I look forward to hearing more in future posts! Also . . . I look forward to vicariously attending BlogPaws through your posts. I wish I could make it, but my plate is pretty full this summer. 🙂
