It was amazing how fast our time in the desert flew by. We all enjoyed the idyllic time we had relaxing there. There were even blooming Paintbrush flowers, a huge change from home where the ground was covered in a few feet of snow.
The sky was blue almost every day so we could enjoy the warmth of the sun as we basked on the wind-sculpted red rocks.
We enjoyed our last sunset at K's Rock of the trip, before we departed the next day. It's amazing how slender K's Rock is on one end.
Shyla glowed in the setting sunlight while looking very sincere.
On our last morning, Shyla had sore paw pads so she wore some new boots, gifts from our friends Lily and Edward. Although her facial expression looked dubious when I first put them on her (see the photo below), she ended up running around like a happily in them. She did not act like she was being tortured like she did in her old boots.
After our pre-travel play time, I peered toward our Colorado mountains which were visible around one end of K's Rock. I could see that winter still reigned there. I pulled my snow boots out of the back of the LabMobile, knowing I'd need them very soon.
I took one more photo of Shyla at the base of K's Rock, with K's daffodils, and we climbed into the LabMobile for the trip home. We will hopefully visit there again soon.
