Kodiak just had a bit of fur missing, no blood. The fight was over in less than a second, I put a stop to it. Aprils dog is a rescue, with a little problem, but April and I have been working on correcting this. No big deal, the attack noise was worse than the actual attack.

Copied my post from the other thread:

Sears-Kay ruins at the beginning of the trip, just outside of Cave Creek. The wind was incredible and Dan (cobras) is freezing his ***** off but wonít admit it:

Aprilís new doggie from Beirut playing in the Hohokam ruins:

One of Diggerís doggies in the ruins. Sorry but I don't remember which one this is (she has four):

The Pack heading back down to the vehicles:

Weíre on the Great Western Trail??? Cool:

Nowhere better to be on Christmas Day than in Godís Country under a big blue sky:


Stopping off at the big rocky spot below the mesa. Anyone know if this place has a real name?

Yep, that is snow on the eastern slopes. Did I mention that it was cold?:

I decided that it was such a beautiful day that I didn't want to drive back on pavement (I-17 from Bloody Basin Road) so I turned around and followed Papa Mo (Frank) and his son back to Cave Creek on the route we had just driven. It was a long day, but one that I will remember forever. I don't think it gets any better than this.

Thanks to April for initiating this trip, and thanks to all for allowing me to be a part of your Christmas Day. It was good to spend this wonderful day doing what I really enjoy with others who share the same philosophy
