Loki The Adorable Wolf-Dog Loves Going On Epic Outdoor Adventures With His Owner

It's well known that dogs are a man's best friend, but what about a part wolf, part dog? After looking at these photos of Loki—who's part Siberian husky, part Alaskan Malamute, and part Arctic Wolf— having fun in the great outdoors with his owner Kelly Lund, then the answer will be a resounding, "uh-huh."

Kelly and two-year-old Loki live in Colorado and love nothing more than to explore the great outdoors together, sleeping in a hammock under the stars, exploring stunning vistas from rocky mountains crags, checking out waterfalls, and generally having a great time.

Lund took up photography to keep a journal of their epic times together and to inspire others to get up off their lazy asses and go outside.

Well, either that or inspire others to look at photos of other people doing that on the internet, which is more likely. Anyway, they make an adorable pair. Here's what Lund writes on his website about how the two got together:

During a blizzard in 2012, I brought Loki home. Loki is a husky/arctic wolf/malamute mix. Growing up in a family that took dog ownership very seriously, I had my fair share of experiences with large dogs. Loki was different though. Instead of him entering into my world, I felt like I had to listen closely and enter into his world, if this was going to work out. At that time, I decided that I would do everything possible to not leave him behind at the house. We started backcountry snowboarding together when he was four months old, and before his third birthday, he’d seen most of the western U.S.

You can check out some photos of them below. And head to Lund's website and Instagram for more.
