A Husky Hiking...

This winter, there has been no shortage of Ms. Kya getting to hiking around Kansas.  This girl has logged too many miles to count.  Along with her hiking, she has also gotten to enjoy many miles running with her mama, you know, since her mama is a full time student now.

We had a few small snow falls this year and they happened on the weekend when Ken could join us for hiking fun!  If you know a husky, you know that they love the snow.

These two are quite the pair!

The sign that that it was a great day for a husky!  A tired husky equals a good husky!

Kya absolutely loves to hike!  She blazes the trail and loves leading the way.  She is always on her leash, since she is a husky and would most likely bolt at the first sign of a deer or a rabbit.  The furthest that she has ever hiked is 17 miles and usually goes around 12 miles most weekends when we hike.  If you have a husky or a high energy dog, I strongly encourage taking them hiking.  The best part is, it is good for everyone involved!
