be right back, searching for dog

“Why is the internet full of cats? Because dogs are too busy playing outdoors.” Desert Dawg.

This is professional photographer Ace Kvale and his dog Genghis Khan, a.k.a Desert Dawg. To celebrate his 60th birthday, Ace set off from his front door in Utah for a 60 day backpacking trip, while friends came and went joining Ace for several days at a time, Genghis was by his side for the entire trip, covering more than 400 miles.

If this doesn’t make you want to get a dog and go out hiking, you may be soulless.
