Khumbus call of the mountain

Wooo I got to go camping with hu’dad and his friends in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I had a great time. It was hot on the way up, we walked for around 7hours to reach our camping area. I seeked out the shade and paddled in the lakes and streams, there were even patches of snow left for me to roll in. They took me on a nasty path, where I cried, dug my feet in etc. They had to hoist me over 1 section!

We slept at 3000m and it was a lovely cool 4C at night, perfect husky weather. All the way up there were lots of mountain goats, yum yum, but I wasn’t allowed to go catch dinner for the night! Even throughout the night the mountain goats were around keeping me entertained. I slept next to hu’dad on some lovely grass, we dont get much of that down here at home. I stayed on fox duty for most of the night and did a good job as not one came to visit us camping.

I woke hu’dad up at first light with a husky kiss and had cuddles. We then set off for home following the Rio Lanjaron, it took about 3 hours to reach the car. On the way down we saw 10 Griffon Vultures circling in the skys above us, hu’mum would have loved to have seen them, but she had to stay home nursing Bruno. I got lots of praise for being such a good boy. It was my first ever camping trip and I did great.

Here is a link to hu’dads post he did about our trip and below is a video of my couple of days in the mountains. The music is by a great Spanish group called CafĂ© Quijano and the song is La Duquesa, hope you like the video and the music.

And a few more pics :-
