Little Brother, Also Gone... & who could forget LB?
2004-2012


2004 -- Little Brother, adjusting to his new home. It was 1-1/2 years before you could walk up to him and put your hands on him without trapping him.

2004-Still very young, inspecting the dog's house. Dog was NOT pleased!


2005-These 4 are on a trip into the Big Horn Crags.




2005-Hiking over in Oregon near the town of Halfway




2006-On an early trip into Langer Lake. Couldn't go past here due to snow up higher

2006-On another early trip in the Sawtooths - Martin/Elizabeth Lakes

2006-Later on, went into Red Mountain Lake for the first time... and before the fire.

2006-And finally on a late-season trip up near the Trinity Mtn Rec Area



2007-Near Braxon Lake in the Sawtooths, one of the prettiest lakes in the Sawtooths.

2007-Bear Valley Hot Spring, my favorite. Pulling around his obligatory drag rope

2007-Almost back to the truck. They're happy & so am I!

Right after crossing the BVHS hot stream. Wonder if he wondered why water was hot?


2007-Jennie Lake

2007-Another trip into Red Mountain Area


2007-Mineral Creek near Alma, New Mexico. They do love to climb.




2007-These four are all in the SW end of the Sawtooths




2008-On another trip into Bear Valley Hot Spring. In the Spring of the year I reckon.

2008-The nex two were taken on a trip into Enos Lake. Which we never actually got to.



2008-A late season trip into Lynx Creek HS, and Lynx Creek Lakes


2008-Negiotiating the log jam across the outlet of Walker Lake in the White Clouds

A never-ending supply of wonderful green grass

Still in the White Clouds, not sure where on this one.

Next frame, Little Brother had retused that strange White Cloud water... until here. Then he tanked up and tanked up... I never thought he was going to get his fill.
He must have liked the smell of this water.


Winter 2008


2009-Taken on another trip into the Langer Lakes area. This time we saw them all.




2009-The next three were from another trip into the White Clouds

Relaxing on a lunch break I believe.

2009-White Clouds with hiking buddy David Loranger. A great trip.

Resting up after one of the trips in the home pen.


2010-Next three from a trip into the Mable Lakes area.

Little Brother 'getting up in the world'.



Winter 2010


2011-The next six pictures are from a 9 day jaunt into Oregon's Eagle Cap Wilderness





Here he seems to be contemplating the incredibly blue waters of Pocket Lake



And Blackjack decided that LB would make an excellent headrest!


2011-Next four frames are from his last trip into the White Clouds.



Particularly interesting, this one was taken at Lonesome Lake, 10435' in the White Clouds, and he has just climbed an impossibly steep drainage to get there. Which underscores why we use goats and not horses. And that with a full pack to boot.

At this point he's probably saying, "why in the he-- would anyone want to come here?"
