Today was Katie's day... and by a quirk of fate, not one person we knew was doing the 25-miler today! They were either taking a break or doing the 50-miler... so we were on our own! Since Katie needs a butt to follow for inspiration, I made sure I was up early and ready at the start to go out right off with the group... started out with a couple of gals on Arabs who seemed real nice, but early on there was a steep hill that Rusty, the ride manager, had suggested we might want to get off and walk down, and with my knees, I fell behind. Got to the bottom to find they had already mounted and moved on... but there were a few people right behind me so headed back out with them.
My companions for most of the day - Linda from Colorado, her sister Carol and husband Bob from California
Thanks to Linda for playing photographer for me :)
Awesome canyon walls
Lovely footing here too!
And cold enough this is how my boys spent the day!
Brenda was just arriving as we got back so it should be a lot warmer sleeping tonight now that I will have a "roommate"!
Just had to share this too... meet Rosie, who LOVES her butt scratched!
Sabrina's husband Joe brought pizza and drinks out for our dinner and I had brought along a package of sparklers for our New Year's Eve celebration... which we had at about 7:30! With another early morning tomorrow, we were in bed shortly after 8!!
I'll leave you with the sunset on Four Peaks
