About Our Blog

“Of all the paths you take, make sure a few of them are dirt.”

For us, its been more than a few dirt paths.  On any given day, you can find us on the trails–running our hearts out, side by side, racing through the pines of the Deep South.

The blog is a glimpse into my life with Copper, my four year old hound dog. Trail running and hiking set our souls on fire. I have learned a lot about the outdoors along the way and continue to learn something new everyday.  Life with Copper is one grand adventure. I often wonder what goes on in that little head of his. He truly has a mind of his own, so you may find a post or two that is written from his perspective.  

There is never a dull moment with Copper.  On a daily basis, he teaches me something new and always gives me something to laugh about. He has taught me to slow down, appreciate the moment I’m in, and enjoy the little things– hence this blog’s focus on simple living. 

I believe in a special kind of joy that only a dog can give you.  It is such a blessing– a gift, really. Copper has given me so much joy and my wish is to share this gift with you.  Thank you for following along on our journey. 

Hike humbly, live simply, & love dogs.

Adventure on,

Kara & Copper
