Well-known ski and adventure photographer Ace Kvale turned 60 last fall. To celebrate, he planned a 60-day, off-trail backpacking trip around Utah's Canyon Country with his 10-year-old blue heeler, Genghis Khan a.k.a. 'Desert Dog.' 

The duo covered over 400 miles on their journey. The film from the adventure is enough to make us all leave work and go home to our own adventure pups.
