@benokle: “Loaded up the truck with a few good friends (including man’s best friend) and took a little road trip up the hill to Lassen National Forrest. We’ve waited so patiently and weather is finally starting to get cold in Northern California. Still not cold enough to keep the pup out of the freezing stream though.”

@marcelagzze: “Am I lucky enough to call this place home? You tell me. This amazing waterfall is just a couple hours from our house in Monterrey, Mexico so we decided to go take a swim after a stargaze camping by the river! Here, Toby was just getting into the lagoon, a few seconds later he was swimming crazy in the deep just under the waterfall. “
