Red Rocks, A Perfect Day

About a week left with Ruby, not a moment to waste! I've never seen a more beautiful autumn than the one we've been having in Colorado. It's an open invitation to get outdoors and just enjoy the sunshine with our two best girls.

As our NY friend, Dennis, says... "Bark Diem!"

Every day spent with Kiva and Ruby is perfect, but there was just something extra-special about this one. We took a ride to Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre in Morrison, where there's a rambling, pretty trail that's easy on Kiva's old bones. Climbing a mountain with Ruby would be exciting, but right now it's challenging enough just to keep her snoot up and off the ground!

Mmmmm...dirt! And twigs! Bugs! Dust! Leaves!

As the trail winds along the rock formations and through meadows and valleys, we got in some good loose leash walking practice.

But really, we just wanted to savor the beauty of being together.

Of course, Mr. Raiser and I had to make sure the girls hit the stage – they're our rockstars! I had a great view from where I was sitting.

But the best seat in the house is right next to the ones you love.

What an absolutely beautiful day and place! Would love to explore those trails and hear a show at the amphitheatre!
There have been too many goodbyes of one form or another the past few weeks :( Ruby, we are really glad to see you on to your next journey, but will oh so miss you! Please send updates!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

I love that picture of Kiva and Ruby together. I'm going to make it my desktop picture. That pic of Ruby and her tongue isn't so bad either and loved your hat! Seemed like a perfect day.
