Road Trip!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim!  Yesterday was warm and windy and we had some awesome clouds rolling across the Flint Hills.  Always fascinated with the weather, Mom thought we should go to a place where we could get an even better view than the one we have here at Ao4 Headquarters.  Yes, "we".   Mom's the self-described weather geek - I'm the one who's always up for a road trip!  Let's go!!!

Look at where we headed:

Mom took that out the sunroof! Can you tell where we were going? Check it out:

"Ahh!!!  Beautiful!"

That's right - to the Top of the World!

Can you tell how windy it was? I look like I was having a bad fur day, don't I? Ha roo, you should have seen Mom's hair! (ahem!)  ... or maybe not.  Do you like my camouflage job?

Anyway, check out the beautiful view!

Gorgeous, isn't it? And the clouds! Wowzers, they were so cool!

"Doesn't it look awesome?"

We walked a bit, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells.

Oh, and it took about more than 12 hours, but thanks to those clouds, we finally we had a cold front move in - we went from in the mid-60s to the 30s (yea!) and overnight we had a massive thunder-hail storm roll through! It was incredible.  For some reason, Mom wouldn't let me go out and take pix of it all.  Go figure!

Thanks for coming with us on our cool adventure!

Play bows,


  1. Humans are rude. I wanted to go out in the rain in the middle of the night too and i was told, "GO TO BED NORA." Rude. Rude. Rude.

    Do you guys ever hike Konza trail?



  2. Those clouds are way cool. I think your fur looks fine. But if you are worried maybe next time you could use some fur spray. I hear it works good on windy days, at least that's what my MOM tells me. I don't have bad fur days cuz mine so short. The only thing that flies in the wind with me is my ears.
    Thanks for taking me along on your walk.

  3. That looks like fun! Your fur blends in really perfectly. I could barely see you in some of those pics1

  4. Looks like you and mom had a great time. Lots of cool cloud pictures.


  5. My mom is fascinated by all WEATHER butt MOST important to her are the CLOUDS.. She LOVES them. Thanks fur showing YOUR very PAWerful Clouds to us.

  7. Awesome pictures, my friend! And no, I haven't seen the Northern Lights yet....sad face....

  8. what a great walk - those pictures are amazing...you can see just about forever!

  9. What beautiful pictures, Zim! Your gusty wind and warm temps are at my house today and mom's hair has been blowin' all over the place too! I sure hope we get the hail with the cool-down!

    Love ya lots,

  10. great pictures! Hail storm does not sound like a time to hang out outside! :)

  11. Hello! We just love your blog, and your walk just looked a blast. You look a little wind blown on your pictures though, BOL!

    Can't wait to read more


  12. That's a pretty cool adventure to see the clouds Zim! Wonder why your mom wouldn't let you go out to see the storm though. Humans can be spoil sports.

  13. Your Kansas skies are beautiful, Zim! what, no pictures of the storms?!? Not even on one of your 0'dark-thirty yard patrols?!? we'd say your mom was a party pooper but you just have too many cool adventures otherwise :)

    The silvers and more

  15. Wow! You really blend in well there!! For a moment we could hard see you!
    Awesome pics as always!!!


  16. Man if you wanted to frolic in the rain that should be your dog given right!

    I'm glad that you went to such a beautiful place & shared the pictures with us.

  18. Those clouds sure do look a little scary. But that is after we just had a ton of tornadoes roll through.

    No fair that you get to go to the Kansas Ocean and now to the TOP OF THE WORLD to!
