We stuffed three dogs and myself in the work truck for the shuttle to the trail head for Lost Lake through run
Tikko romps on the tundra, sniffing all the exciting coyote, marmot, ground squirrel smells.
Andrew and Tessa run down the trail
Tikko enjoys the view from Lost Lake trail
Tikko romping on the tundra soem more
Tessa uses her nose, she is the best tracker of all the dogs.
Tikko poses for a nice picture. Harding Ice Fields are in the background on the far right.

My happy runner

Wonderful spot for a view
Answering the call of the marmot
The marmots up here are huge, as big as woodchucks, and have very loud whistles. The dogs have a hard time orientating the sound, I think

German Shepherds are such pretty dogs
Up and over the hillock
Tessa watches Tikko
Took this in speed shutter mode
Tikko comes back from exploring the ridgeline
Whew! Tikko is hot
Occasionally we try to take 'rave run' photos for Runner's World but this one just doesn't have the lighting or the view. Although Andrew sure looks happy.
