Lincoln National Forest

Auditioning for an action movie
Another early hike on the Grand View Trail for Dr. K, Becca and me this morning.  The temperature was much more in keeping with the season during our trek, climbing into the low-40s by the time we were done.  We ran into no humans during our outing, but we did encounter the handsome male dog pictured here.  We've run into him and a buddy of his several times, and this guy--who looks to be part Chow--is very friendly, and he seems to really like Becca.  She seems quite attracted to him as well.
Is this my better profile?

I like how well you captured the beauty of this landscape, Packrat. That Chow is such a handsome (and friendly) dog.
