Don't wander carelessly off the trail here
I expected more people to be out on the mountain during this federal holiday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  JC, Shaque, Becca and I did run into a small family while we were headed back to the parking area.  JC managed to snag Shaque, who wanted to gallop ahead to greet the children.  Becca went a short distance off trail and lay down when I gave the command, "Down!"  Afterward Becca and I went to gas up the RAV4 and get a car wash.  Becca is never thrilled about riding through the car wash with me.

This is what you call "forging ahead."
