Well, that was fun. We went out to the Four Peaks area east of Phoenix, arriving just before dawn, and spent about two hours exploring. Pita, like all dogs, is a natural born scatologist (thanks to Norman Schwarzkoff for teaching us all that word) , so she spent most of the hike investigating all the different kinds of poop she encountered. Cow poop in giant mounds, coyote poop, bobcat poop, javelina poop, poop galore. I like that word so much better than shit. Poop is a word you say with a smile on your face. Shit you usually say when you're angry or scared. Anyway, I also got some got pics of both Pita and the scenery. I may get them posted for you today, but don't hold me to it.
