Angel K's Rock

Our last stop on our desert trip was to camp at K's Rock for a few days. We named it "K's Rock" because we discovered this secluded and beautiful campsite on our last trip to the desert with K.

In the desert, this is my image of heaven...
K is on our minds a lot when we're camping in this spot. There will always be a deep sadness and grief in my heart over losing her at a relatively young age to bone cancer. However, with each year, the gratitude for the incredible love she showed all of us grows.

She prepared my heart for a dog like Shyla. This picture is of me and Shyla but, four years ago, it would have been of me and K.

We brought some daffodils with us on the trip. They flourished in the LabMobile until the end of the trip. Then, we put them at the base of K's Rock as a remembrance of our special girl. Shyla lay next to them at sunset the evening before we headed home.
K's Rock would be a favorite desert place for us even if it didn't have such sentimental meaning because it's so beautiful and so quiet. However, the memories of K make it an even better place. We remember our Angel K, we tell stories about her, and we smile. Her huge heart and unquenchable joy for life made her so special.
