Another view from the Chamisa Trail, just outside of Santa Fe, where my friend, pup and I hiked in late December. If you look carefully — squint your eyes just bit — you can just make out my sweet black mutt bounding down the trail ahead of us. Hard not to find joy in life when out in the woods with a happy pup.
