The Search for Summit
Written by: Brooke of @summitatthesummit
My name is Brooke and I am an outdoor enthusiast living in the beautiful state of Colorado! When I’m not working 12 hour shifts, I spend every moment I can enjoying the great outdoors with my pup, Summit!
I first set eyes on a Bernese Mountain Dog when I was living in Rochester, Minnesota. I had never seen a dog of this breed in my entire life. I was immediately obsessed and knew that one day, my first dog would be a Berner. Fast forward a few years, I moved myself to Colorado to chase my outdoor passions. I started seriously searching for a breeder. I found Summit’s breeder after months of research and talking with various breeders. I went out to the kennel in January of 2018 and I knew I was at the right place. I put down a deposit while I was visiting and picked Summit up on May 24, 2018. My 26th birthday was definitely a birthday to remember!
I’ve always had an eye for photography but my passion was sparked the day I picked up Summit. Living in Colorado, we have endless access to the outdoors in our very own backyard. We are constantly traveling across the state to see all of nature’s beauty. Most of our time in the summer months is spent in a tent, somewhere in the backcountry. Our winters consist of snowshoeing in places where we can find the deepest snow. Summit is a huge sucker for the snow. He also loves the cold, me not so much!
