世界は美しい!愛犬メイヤと飼い主マークの旅物語

世界は美しい!愛犬メイヤと飼い主マークの旅物語

マークと彼の愛犬マイヤ。彼らの冒険の写真は「世界はこんなに美しんだ!」ということ改めて教えてくれます。

オーストラリアのメルボルン出身のマーク。彼の祖父の家は、ビーチや山へとのアクセスがよく、小さいころからスキーなどアウトドアに慣れ親しんできました。しかし、彼が冒険へ出ようと思ったのは、彼の父が心臓発作で急死したことがきっかけになったと言います。そのとき人生は何があるかわからない、自分が本当にやりたいことを先延ばしにしてはだめだと思ったとのこと。そこで、昔から憧れていた冬のカナダに行くことを決意。

しかし、彼の愛犬「マイヤ」のことが考えなければなりませんでした。ホワイトシェパードのマイヤは8カ月の時マークの家族になり、一緒に暮らしてきました。彼女を置いて行くという選択は無かったので、一緒に旅することに。飛行機に乗せることなど簡単ではありませんでしが、2017年11月。ついにマークとメイヤはオーストラリアから北アメリカへ。

WE NEED YOUR HELP – PLEASE READ … If you didn’t see our last post, we just released a 2019 calendar and three gift cards. One for Christmas, birthdays & Valentines Day. .. We are hoping to sell 800 of these, to raise money for 19 very worthy charities & to help keep our adventures going. .. Because I didn’t want people to be paying upto $20 in shipping, I came up with the idea of putting together an e-calendar & sending it to people digitally. This way there would be no freight costs & people could take it to their local printing shop for about $15.00AUD or just use their own business/home office supplies. .. I didn’t feel I could charge a set amount for these. I’ve set up the download for complete honesty, with a donation to be made to our go fund me page. We are sugesting $10 for the calendar & $3 for each card, but it’s entirely upto you. .. So far we have had 27 donations out of our 800 target. A small target I thought for the 40k people following us. I want to raise a minimum $5400 for the charities below. Im sure we can do a lot more. .. These charities are the ones that everyone suggested to us. The work they do has somehow been linked to our adventures and they range fron rescuing dogs, to training service animals & looking after the animals from the California Wild Fires. .. @sweetshepherdrescue @blackdoginst @aarcs @bcspca @trailsandbears @savinghuey @jamesonanimalrescueranch North Valley Animal Disaster @yamnuskawdsanct @searchdogfoundation @projectk9hero @custom_canines @dogs_with_wings @bradysk9fund CARDA @livelikeroofoundation @patriotpawsservicedogs @frankiesfriends Save The Tasmanian Devil Appeal .. Help us by liking & saving this post (so that Instagram shows it to others). Leave a comment giving us a , tagging someone else or if your one of the 27 kind people who have already downloaded your copie, let us know what you think. Share this post, so others can see it & click on the link in our bio to download our calendar & cards. Then head to our go fund me page & make a donation. Your support is greatly appreciated. .. Ill be doing an Instagram live session at 7pm (Pacific Standard Time) if you have any questions. #NoPawGetsLeftBehind

So today I want to tell you about our trip to Banff a couple of weeks ago. We decided we would head to Banff a little early, as I new some of the things I wanted to experience would be shutting down over winter and I really wanted to be able to tell you about them. … First up Mya and I got to go paddling out on Lake Louise. It was a great experience to be able to head back when the lake wasn’t frozen, like it had been when we visited last winter. You can hire canoes from the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and go for a paddle. Just be sure that you and your pup are comfortable in the canoe, as the water is pretty cold. … Next up I visited the Columbia Icefields and went on a Glacier Ice Explorer tour. Unfortunately the tour isn’t dog friendly, so Mya had to stay with a friend for a couple hours. The tour involves taking a purpose built Ice Explore to the below the glacier and taking a look around. … Afterwards I visited the Skywalk, which is just up the road and offers amazing views of the area and entry can be purchased on the same ticket as the Ice Explorer. … Later that evening Mya and I visited Lake Minnewanka and got to see the Northern Lights for the first time. We also visited Lake Vermilion and I managed to take my first night photos that I was happy with. … Is Kayaking your thing? Whats your favorite activity to do with your pup? Doesnt have to be adventurous, could simply be checking out Instagram together? … @Banff_LakeLouise @Banff.Lodging.Co @PursuitBanffJasper @FairmontCLL #MyBanff #BanffLove #BestofBanff #LakeLouise #PursuitLife #NoPawGetsLeftBehind #Sponsored

マークは1人でいると気づかない自然の美しいところや脅威にマイヤがいることで気づかされる部分もあると言います。マイヤの安全を一番に考えていますが、マイヤがいることで制限されることはなく、一緒にパドルボードやカヤックを楽しみ、ハイキングやバイクも共に。マイヤはいつも自然を楽しんでいるように見えるとのこと。マークは犬と一緒に旅をしている「 Kelly&Loki 」や「Amanda&Kyro」コンビに触発された部分も多いと言います。

So yesterday we left SLC & made our way to beautiful Moab, where we got to check out the Arches National Park & then watch a sunset from the Island of Skye in the Canyonlands National Park. It was really hot, so I would suggest you plan your days accordingly & Mya got to try out her new Ruffwear hiking boots to stop her paws getting burnt (She seems to like them better than her snow boots). Dogs are welcome at both parks, but activities with dogs are limited. Dogs must be leashed at all times. There are some differences between the two parks, so we suggest you check specifics, but in general you may have your dog with you: •On all park roads •In parking areas •In picnic areas •In the main campground You can’t have your dog with you: •At any overlooks on any hiking trails, •Anywhere off-trails •In the visitor center As in all National Parks you are expected to clean up after your dog & not leave them unattended. The National Parks recommend against leaving pets in your car when temperatures are above 68°F, even with the windows cracked. With the heat we experienced I wouldn’t be planning to do this & would suggest putting in a little extra time into planning your trip. If you’d like to go on any of the trails that dogs aren’t permitted on you could consider leaving your pup with one of the kennels in Moab. There are three of them lister on the NPS website. We had hoped to check out the Dead Horse Point National Park & Corona Arch Trail which allow dogs but unfortunately just ran out of time as we had only planned originally to check out Arches & ended up getting into the area a little late. If you’re going to head to the Moab area I would try to allow atleast a whole weekend. Be sure to book your accommodation well in advance. All the camp grounds we looked at were full & because we had a bit of travel couldnt get to the non reserved sites early enough. We ended up staying at La Quinta in Moab, which as most of you know has a fantastic pet policy. Today we are off to Bryce Canyon. If you have any tips please let us know. #NoPawGetsLeftBehind … @VisitMoab @visitutah @nationalparkservice #VisitMoab #YesVisitUtah #NationalParkPaws #FindYourPark #Sponsored

これまでカナダの主要なマウンテンリゾート、アメリカのニューヨーク、ナイアガラの滝、イエローストーン国立公園、グランドキャニオン国立公園など北アメリカの冒険を経験。

しかし、これで終了ではなく彼らは旅はまだまだ続きます。北アメリカの冒険を終えた後は、ニュージーランドやヨーロッパへ冒険の舞台を移動するとのこと。

インスタグラムやウエブサイトで冒険の様子が見られます。

夢への一歩を踏み出したマークとマイヤの今後の冒険も楽しみですね。
