A Step Forward
Our black dog, R, might get his stitches out today. I feel as if he's spent the past two weeks lying on this bed, just patiently waiting to get better (except when he's caterwauling). I take off his Zen Collar a few times a day to let him feel more normal....

The Bear Facts
Yesterday, many of you asked about the mother bear and cubs who are in the den where I have trail cameras . I haven't been to check the cameras in about 7 weeks. Starting in early March, I felt worried that the bear family might choose to lie in front of th...

Shyla Says Carpe Diem!
I've mentioned previously here that I'm taking a great course about how to adapt my training to Shyla's unique personality. One of our instructors, Deborah Jones Ph.D., just gave a lecture where she said: " So instead of complaining about the challenges you...

A Symbol from Times Past
I participate in a dog photo group that has a daily prompt. Today's prompt was to photograph your dog with a "symbol".

I chose a "bringsel" that my deceased dog, Acadia, used in search and rescue. It was a small soft object that hung from her collar. Here ...

The Joy of Training
Today, I want to share a brief video of me and Shyla training before our huge snowstorm. The main thing that I love about the video is not Shyla's skills - it's her utter joy in playing and engaging with me. That's what I want more than anything, especially...
Today, I want to share a brief video of me and Shyla training before our huge snowstorm. The main thing that I love about the video is not Shyla's skills - it's her utter joy in playing and engaging with me. That's what I want more than anything, especially knowing where we started.

A Day by the Fire
It's a gray, cold, and damp day out there, with a storm moving in more slowly than expected. Shyla and I played some outside today but it was bone-chillingly cold. Then, I made a brief foray onto Black Bear Trail to get a trail cam ready for bear mating sea...

Spring back to winter!
We had a couple of days when it felt almost like spring. Some sections of the trails were down to dirt although I still needed my snow bike for those nasty north-facing slopes. The birds were singing. And our Broad-tailed Hummingbirds had arrived. Yesterday...

A Mountain Lion Visit
We live at high elevation in the mountains. I stop and gaze at the mountains almost every day, in disbelief that we get to live here. We are lucky. At this time of year, however, I do wish that spring would come to our neck of the woods. I'm tired of the sn...
At this time of year, however, I do wish that spring would come to our neck of the woods. I'm tired of the snow and the cold. Recently, a few sure-fire signs have emerged. I heard the trill of a hummingbird's wings, not once, but twice yesterday! I quickly cleaned a hummingbird feeder and put it ...

Rambunctious Snowy Shyla and Caterwauling R
The first photo sums up a big part of what I love about Shyla. She started out so scared. Together, we've traveled a long way and now she's never afraid when it's just her and me. Today, near the beginning of our snowshoe hike, she almost flattened me by no...

Story
Tagline
I'm avid outdoors person. I love observing nature and playing with my Labs out in the forest.
Introduction
I live at 8200' in the Front Range of Colorado. I love exploring nature in the mountains while riding my mountain bike and romping with my two Labradors. Photography is another passion, including both "normal" photography and trail camera photography of wildlife.

My two dogs are Shyla, a 4-year-old Chocolate Lab, and R, a 8-year-old Black Lab.

I have a blog where I describe my adventures and share my photography: "Romping and Rolling in the Rockies".

You can reach me at kynabear5 at gmail.
Bragging rights
I love tracking mountain lions and bears.
