It takes a village.

The weekend’s weather report looks great for Tieton, north of Yakima. Tieton is one of my favorite Washington climbing areas, and I can’t wait to get back out there. I had hoped to take Hana the dog with me this weekend, since she loves camping, and the weather looked moderate enough that she wouldn’t overheat, but alas — the weather report has ticked upward and it’s going to be hot. With the Hood Canal Bridge closed, she can’t run up to Grandma and Grandpa’s in Port Townsend, like she usually does. That left a last minute Hana care scramble, and my girl Candace came to the rescue. I’m going to watch her beloved Coco for her run down to Tieton tomorrow, then she’s going to take care of Hana while I’m gone.

It truly does take a village.

Other folks must have the same issue. How do you mix taking care of your furry kids and your outdoor adventure? Please share, in the comments!
