Adventures with Lydia

Ms. elk checked us out and went back to looking for food.
FLAGSTAFF, AZ - -In the military they call it a "forced march.'  With Lydia, it's more like "follow me and keep up."  These are usually instances where her keen sense of direction overcomes any obstacles which may be in the way.  Case in point:  At the Grand Canyon, we had to Park at an overflow lot away from everything.  Sensing the canyon rim was close by so there must be a trail to it, we set off with me in the position of 'keeper upper'.   There really was a trail , but it required a lot of rambling through the woods and an encounter with a female elk to find it.
     We always seem to survive even if the short way may not be on Lydia's internal GPS.
