Heading South on SV

"Whitey" in the parking lot at Sierra Vista Trail (South)
Dr. K, Becca and I hit the Sierra Vista Trail South this morning at 8:07 and did a short hike of about an hour in duration.  We're still being careful about taking Becca on extended hikes since it's only been a day since she took her last Rimadyl.  I have her back on glucosamine/chondroitin supplements and cannabis oil.  I have to take her to the vet Tuesday afternoon for her annual checkup, and there are a few things I want Dr. Thompson to look at.  I always get a bit nervous whenever I have to take Becca in because she gets so anxious.  Hope this time will be different.  Perhaps I should give her a big dose of the CBD oil.

Since there are homes back there this sign has been turned around
