After we got done schmoozing at Peaks & Paws, my brother and sister-in-law wanted to head up the gondola and walk around the top of the mountain. So of course, we had to go to too!

You can never be too high up for some love.

This was Kaya and Norman's first time up the gondola, but neither were concerned. The gondola climbs 2000 feet to 8200 feet at high camp!

High Camp!

Then we got to explore! There's something really cool about seeing the chair lifts without all the snow.

Say cheese!...or is it dried liver?

We found a cool tree!

And a cool rock!

Squaw Valley held the 1960 winter Olympics. Kaya had to check out the ice rink and Olympic rings.

I took these pictures last was much snowier!

We caught one of the last gondola rides on the way down so needless to say, it was a bit more crowded than the way up.

Their version.

My version.

They were so tired, they made themselves comfortable on all the feet:)

It was such a fun day, I can't wait to go back next year!


  1. What a beautiful place!

    Stop on by for a visit

  2. That is just so cool! I love all the scenery and how much fun the pooches look like they're having fun.

  3. Hello terrifying! Your pups seriously get to do so much I am in awe all the time!

  4. I've got horrible vertigo so going up in something like that would take a lot but it's so pretty I think I would have to give it a try!

    1. There is one part where it swings after you go over the's fun, but other may think it's scary;D

  5. Wow--that is some beautiful scenery! I think my dogs would be a little nervous going up that high, and so would I :)

  6. Kaya and Norman were as high up as birds! How exciting! And that tree was so cool...kind of creepy, but really cool :)
