Layla & Main

Post-hike hang at Colorado Bend State Park (TX)

More: The ultimate mother-daughter duo (and my heart and soul, respectively): these two love nothing more than to disappear for days on end into the wilderness with just a tent, their food bowls, and their human in tow. Sadly, Layla (left in photo) lost her valiant battle to bone cancer February of this year. Main (right) is her legacy, and her zeal for life and all things outdoors continues on with this ridiculous dog who will not accept that she’s never not *the* main character of this incredible story we call life.
