Any word on the trial?

08-05-2011, 12:21 PM
little to no cell coverage at the site,probably wont hear anything till tonite

I know, its gonna keep my stomach in knots all day since this is my girls first trial back since whelping in May. I was really hoping it would be in an area where I could be updated.

No news as the cell and internet coverage is almost non-existant. Although, you can get it at Bear River lodge with Verizon (or can connect to their wifi too from the parking lot) and also you may get it for a minute at Bald Mountain pass, if you are lucky and standing in the right place.

I have said it before, but the general area where these two Utah mountain trials are held (Whitney Reservoir and the Mirror Lake scenic byway) are about my favorite place in the world, and about as beautiful as it gets.

For those of you that haven't been to this trial or this area, here are a few cell phone pics from this last week with a couple of the many many million dollar views.

The wildlife is abundant with tons of deer, some elk, moose, and mtn goats this trip. Lots of good fun fishing too.

Nevermind, it is miserable up there, everyone stay away! ;)

The clubs are the two Utah FT clubs; northern Utah retriever club and great salt lake retriever club. They do their earlier trials at lee Kay and then these later summer ones in the mountains up there in the Uintas. Beautiful place and bring a fishing pole. :)

Tuffy is sure doing well in Derby.
Here are a few picks of him before he went out west.
You can see by his tail where his name came from.

Good luck buddy.
