I remember hiking the Feather River Canyon, north rim in the burn
area July 4. We had our Airedale Addie with us and were walking down
into the canyon. It was so hot it felt like we had opened the oven
door. It was a blast of hot air. The trail was so hot my husband had
to carry her. At gound level the trail is many degrees hotter. A
little dog would die in those conditions. I always carried rawhide dog
boots and waterproof tape, when I sectioned hiked with our Hailey. I
was close to home then so could abort the hike easily if needed. The
dogs stay home and keep my husband company.
