Inversion has settled into Portland, it is so warm at the mountain that snow is melting rapidly, and the Columbia Gorge is ridiculously windy and freezing. Don’t let this picture fool ya, the wind was whipping and behind me up high on the hill was a mountain covered in frost providing for some freezing hiking conditions. Winter is stuck. It needs to snow. And I have a cold. Bah humbug.
Ayla is 7 weeks post TPLO surgery today!🙌🏼 Next week she has an apt to get her X-rays for her 2 month check up. We are positive her bone will be healed up because her recovery has gone so well💜Now we can really up her exercise to strengthen her leg back to where it needs to be. 2018 Ayla will be making her comeback! 🎉So beyond excited and grateful for this special pup😍 .

Not a lot of snow up there, but any snow at all makes the creeps stoked for hike n shred!
I spy a waterfall or 2 or 3 💦
Had a great day hiking with @nelson_wallace Mom. We found 3 waterfalls and a swimming hole too.
Glad my bandanas are washable. I can’t keep them clean. .

Information post: It seemed like a crazy thing to do. I never thought of buying a vehicle in a foreign country before but that is what we did and now after being here in New Zealand for over a month with one more to go, I wouldn’t do it any other way. Although the initial cost is a lot ( we paid $9000 NZD/$6200 USD for our van) van culture is alive and well and we are confident we won’t loose much, if any ,when we sell it which makes it the most affordable option by far. Owning a van here has provided the ultimate freedom to roam and live as we wish while exploring 🇳🇿. It has also taken care of our living and because our van is certified as a Self Contained Vehicle (very important) we have rarely paid for a place to sleep (free 🤗). A very useful app that we have been using to find everything (places to sleep, bathrooms, water, grocery stores, showers, laundry etc..) is CamperMate. To find our van we used Facebook Classifieds and NZ Backpacker Notice Board. What else would you like to know about owning a van in New Zealand?
And for those that will ask, we leave on January 13th and will be looking to sell our Van ideally on the 11th at the earliest.

This morning my paws were the first to walk on a freshly snow dusted trail. ❄️🌲❄️ The humans and I have been hiking to these falls since I was a pup. Ever since I was little I loved jumping up on this one particular boulder on the trail, which my humans call 'cattledog rock'. Every Time I see it til this day, I run full throttle at it and jump to the top, effortlessly of course. 😂
