On Our Way Down

Juniper
Dr. K, Becca and I intended to do a shorter hike on the Grand View Trail this morning, but we ran into a woman and her dog, Ginger, at the midway ramada, and we stood talking to her for fifteen or twenty minutes.  Ginger was a Pit Bull mix, very friendly and quite interested in Becca.  Becca was interested in Ginger, too, just not as much.  They got along fine, though, and we all parted to go our separate ways.  We didn't see them again on the final leg of our trek even though we expected to have another encounter.  Don't know where they got off to, but it was just as well because we didn't want to spend more time talking; we had to get back and pack for our return trip to the lower desert.
