Photo Friday: The Grand Canyon

The caption on Flickr for this photo is “the grand canyon: unimpressed dog,” which is perfect. It was taken just over a year ago. The official website for the Grand Canyon National Park has a page devoted to visiting dogs: Pet dogs are hardly allowed at all on the North Rim, and on the South Rim, dogs are allowed only above the rim and must be leashed. There is a kennel on the South Rim, to give pet owners the option of boarding their dog for the day while they hike below the rim.

Since pets are not allowed in any of the park’s hotel rooms, non-campers will need to make hotel reservations outside the park’s boundaries — the nearest town, and it’s small, is Tusayan, but Williams (about an hour’s drive away) and Flagstaff (about 1.5 hours away) are also workable options.

Please send me links to your favorite dog travel photos! They’ll get listed below, for everyone to click on and view. Here’s how it works:

  1. Every Friday, I’ll put up a post like this one, sometime during the morning (Pacific time).
  2. If you have a blog or a website, post a dog travel photo on your site on Friday and link back here to the current week’s “Photo Friday” post so that your readers can see other great dog travel photos. Please take a moment to make sure that you are linking directly to your photo post instead of your homepage.
  3. If you don’t have a blog or a website, simply post your photo to Flickr (or Facebook, Twitpic, etc.).
  4. Using the inlinkz button below, paste in the link to your photo or your blog post. That way, Dog Jaunt will link back to you. Please include a few words in the “Name” box describing where you took the photo (in this case, “Name” refers to the name of your photo, not your name!).
