This past week Andrew and I went to Tehachapi Mountain Park for a walk. It was a beautiful day (as they all are) and we were hiking up towards the Tehachapi Mountain Peak. The trail was wide and fairly obvious but had steep banks either side as you snaked around the edge of the mountain. Instead of walking along the trail Macintosh obviously wanted to climb up the steep banks! That's where the animal smells are and that's where its more interesting.
Obviously being the kind and loving dog-parents we are we didn't instruct him how to get up and down safely, no instead we just took pictures and videos and laughed at him. But in our defence, we knew it would be funny for you guys to watch too! So here are some pictures for you. The first two pictures put into context the steep banks so that you get the idea of what he's climbing up, otherwise the pictures make it look flatter than it is!
Now here is the mountain goat himself in action!
Due to the dust over here Macintosh pretty much looks like a brown dog all over by the time we head home. Here's a video of him climbing one of the softer and less steep parts of the trail but just watch the dust storm he creates!! (and ignore my voice...)
