Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and kittens. It's me, Zim, here to bring you the rest of the photos Mom took when she and I went to the Top of the World the other day. We hope they will help you find that inner tranquility. (You can click any of today's photos to see larger versions in our FlickR album!)

Here's a shot on our way there:

on the way there

Note to Mom: how about cleaning the windshield?

Here's a look to the north, once we got up there:

Top of the World, facing north

The OP Pack's mom thinks the clouds look a lot like a pup asking for tummy rubs. Ha roo roo roo, I think she's right!!!

Here's another look toward the north:

Top of the World, N

Here's a shot toward the northeast:

Top of the World, facing NE

That shot does a lot to make me feel serene!

How about a look at some of the wildflowers that we saw and sniffed? (Mom did the looking, I did the sniffing.)

wild flowers...

Mom thought they were very sweet. I thought they were very fragrant. And tasty!

Let's check on those clouds to the north again:

Top of the World, N again

And one more look before we head home:

One more look, Top of the World, north-ish

It was a beautiful day to be up there, pups and kit-cats. Thanks for letting me show you around a little. Oh... and one more shot, as we headed home - once again taken through the dirty windshield...:

Heading home from Top of the World

I hope these helped bring a little peace and tranquility into your day.

Before I sign off, we have some very sad news to share with you, if you haven't heard. We got the news last night that our dear friend Rocky the RockStar has passed away. If you have a moment, please stop by his blog and offer some kind words for his dad and for Mati. We're sure they could use a lot of support right now. Thank you.

Play bows,
