Gracie the Ultimate Hiking Dog

 As therapy after losing my all time favorite hiking companion, I have collected some photos that are uploaded here.  She wasn't just a hiking dog - the family loved her as well!  But there are many more photos of G on hikes than around the house.  There is no chronological order here.

Thanks to the many people who hiked with her and made her feel at home! There are many important people not included in these photos.  I wish I'd taken my camera out more often.

There are a lot of photos here, showing a lot of adventures.  My all time favorite trail photo is the last one in this post.

Gracie is also memorialized on two photos on the back of the commercially available PATC Map 13. She was a star.


  1. Always loved seeing Gracie and her little hairy sidekick whenever I visit your welcoming home. I know that Gracie lived a great life and traveled many, many miles. She was a GREAT dog and a lucky dog to have a family that loved her so much!

  2. They say that dogs are man's best friend but I say man is dog's best friend. Jeff you and Gracie are a hiking team of giving and receiving. You provided for her and her memories will live with you forever.. On some level so sad... On another so Happy!!! Mark Trail!
