Snake River Chieftain

Snake River Cheiftain

We’ve been vagabonds in our camper this past week. We traveled to Santa Cruz to see the family with our new baby. His name is Chief, Snake River Chieftain, to be exact. We picked him up a couple of weeks ago, a darling pup of 7 weeks who looked way too little to bring home. Now he’s a bustling 9-week-old bundle of energy who wants to chew his way over the Sierra, through the desert and back to Idaho tomorrow. We can both say, even though its been fantastic seeing all of our kids, this 50 something couple is looking forward to getting back home, despite the romantic life we live in our cab-over camper. We will say farewell once again to this verdant place, filled with throngs of wonderful, progressive people, and return to our quiet life, where our days are defined by firewood, projects, feeding animals, getting in shape for the snow boarding season, and for me, writing Pacheco Falls.

    Beautiful rendition, as usual. Chief is “something else”.And as cute as he is lucky.
