Ivy AugThis was the best summer ever! This month, I got to go camping with my raisers and explore the mountains near Lake Louise and Jasper. I got to sleep in a tent in my own new and bigger kennel, splashed in creeks and very cold mountain lakes, hiked for many miles to the top of mountains or quiet lakes. I even got to ride on a gondola to the top of a ski lift!

I got to explore many fun stores and ice cream shops, too. My favorite place to sleep after a hard day’s hike was in the dirt by the toasty fire.

I am getting very good at ignoring chipmunks and squirrels. I can hardly wait to camp again next year! Maybe next year I’ll see a BEAR!
