I ran into Tracey and her dog George early on during my trek and got to pet that wonderful canine. Two different dog fixes in two days--can't beat that.
Although I saw a few other outdoor enthusiasts on and about the mountain I didn't encounter any of them. Haven't seen my buddy Jimmy in a while because he spent the past week in Ruidoso; perhaps I'll bump into him tomorrow morning before Dr. K and I head up to the Sacramento Mountains.
