At Home on the Range


My Subie (a Crosstrek named Samara) is my home away from home when I hit the road. My two dogs, Toby and Nala, have a nice setup in the back of the vehicle with two dog beds. We go into the canyons of the Wasatch Mountains at least once a week to hike, fish and run. We also go camping and attend long-distance running races at least once a month. Places we’ve been include Moab, Zion, Colorado and Lake Tahoe. The dogs love to stick their heads out opposite windows while I cruise, and they love running around and swimming in the water after sticks, or just hunting imaginary animals in the brush while I fish for bluegill and trout. Toby is happy as long as he is with me, and Nala is happy as long as she is with Toby. She loves me too, but adores her big brother.
