Hi! I am Lupe, an American Dingo (Carolina Dog), enthusiastic explorer and adventurer.
I have the good fortune to live near a 1.2+ million acre dog park in western South Dakota known as the Black Hills National Forest. Most weekends I go on a day long expedition into the mountains accompanied by my Slow Plodding Human Porter (SPHP), who carries the water and Taste of the Wild dingo food. The use of a plodding human porter does slow things down a lot, but frees me to sniff, bark, explore and enjoy the trip at a leisurely pace.
This blog is about my life and adventures as told (and occasionally embellished) by SPHP. You will find trip reports on my Black Hills expeditions to remote parts of the national forest, stories about my antics, plus tales and photos from the Dingo Vacations I go on with SPHP to the world beyond the Black Hills.
If you like dogs and adventure, are curious about what’s over the next ridge, or just enjoy the solitude, freedom and grandeur of the natural world, I invite you to follow along with me. The (Mostly) True Adventures of Lupe will take you to some spectacular famous places, but mostly to remote locations seldom seen by others.
I’m excited you are here! Are you ready to go adventuring? Let’s get started! I can hardly wait!

I keep track of the mountains I climb on Peakbagger.com. Peakbagger.com has a huge database on mountains, and you can see all kinds of geographical information about where I’ve been. The topographic maps on Peakbagger.com will help readers follow my adventures.
Links on The (Mostly) True Adventures of Lupe are either blue or red. Blue links open up a new tab to a separate website (often Peakbagger.com). Red links open up another page or post on The (Mostly) True Adventures of Lupe.
