i love my dog and i love the mountains....

so does anyone know where and how i can have both at the same time over summer 2009?
talulah is a rescued 43 lb. sheperd-mix. i found her this summer in a rain storm and we fell in love.
i couldn't stand to leave her behind to go work some place awesome, but i don't want to be stuck here for another summer of record-breaking high temps and urban hustle and bustle. i was originally planning on hitting up glacier park summer 09, won't be doing so without her. or without making enough money to pay my car loan. which appearantly is impossible w/ americore.
i am up for montana, wyoming, or colorado, or maybe new mexico or califoria. hell, maybe idaho. i just want high elevation, pine trees, and space.

anyone got any suggestions?

ps- i also have a head full of dreads i'm not ready to part with, just to make this a bit more difficult.

Yellowstone National Park Lodges does offer employee RV/Camper sites for employees. You can have pets in those sites. The park does have a leash rule and pets are not allowed in the backcountry. Anymore questions please feel free to ask.

I work at Grand Targhee and they are fairly liberal. If you come with dreads, you can keep them. They don't like to see people grow beards or dreads during the season, but the off season allows you to do what you will for the following one. Unfortunately, last summer was a real slow, empty summer at the resort (except for the festivals). Hopefully, 2009 will be different. I have a dog and I bring her to work everyday. She sits in the car, but she gets out on lunch break plus she gets attention from friends as well as us through out the day. Grand Targhee does discourage employees from bringing their dogs according to the handbook, but I have seen more employees religiously bring up their pets with leashes or some let them run free. Driggs, ID has several businesses that allow employees dogs to come to work and chill with them (or that is what my outside perception gathers). The Pet Store, Big Hole Music, Peaked name a few, all have dogs (usually more than one) hanging out in the stores. Driggs is only a few miles from the National Forest and the hiking is awesome. Just a bit of info to think about. If you have any more questions, just write and I'll try to answer as best I can. I've been here for 9 months, so there is a lot I've seen, but there is plenty more to explore. P.S. There are plenty of mountains and pine's breathtaking.

Yellowstone or a small town nearby. A lot of the big resorts won't accommodate a dog, but many small towns such as Jackson Hole, West Yellowstone, Bozeman, Gardiner, etc, etc have a lot of work and you can find a private place to rent. Do you like camping? If you can do that, it greatly frees up opportunities a pet can hinder (I camped for 3 1/2 months on the beach in homer, AK this year. It was awsome). The money gets made in a tipped position such as bartending or serving, if you are concerned about $$$. Some places make a LOT of $$$... ask about the average sales. 1000.00 -- 1500.00 X 13 % after tip-out will give you 130.00 -- 180.00 a day. With 2 jobs, you can do awsome, but it will wear on you...
Good luck... :0)
