The Dogs of 5150′

The only thing us locals might love more than Casper’s mountain, river and wide-open spaces is exploring them with our furry friends. And when you stop and think about it, it’s pretty amazing the places we have right in our backyard to roam with our dogs.  So, I made a simple request, Casper. I asked to see your dogs. And you freakin’ delivered.

They hike.

The dogs of Casper might be just as amazing as the people of Casper. And you know how much I love you people.
