Last weekend was our anniversary, and my husband is on a mission to go to as many of the National Parks as possible. Only one problem: the National Parks aren't dog-friendly (there are some caveats to that, but in general, it's no hiking with the pup in the parks. National Forests, however, are another story. See my posts on our Yosemite trip for more info.) Since we really wanted to get to hike, Captain unfortunately didn't get to enjoy all this:
We went to Lassen National Park, and took in some incredible views, geologic wonders, and of course hiking! Since Lassen is filled with boiling hot springs, I can see why dogs shouldn't be there! And don't feel too bad for Captain- he did spend the weekend with his favorite dog-sitter. Plus, we decided we need to do more East-Bay hiking while the weather's just right, so more adventures for Captain to come!
