Again on the Grand View

At the lower trailhead
Willow, Frio, Dr. K and I did the Grand View Trail again this morning, hiking nearly all of it today.  We ran into one other hiker--an older gentleman--near the midway ramada.

The weather was perfect:  50F and sunny without wind; there was, however, a cool, gentle breeze that felt great once our body temps had risen from exertion.

Heelers were happy, and much better behaved than yesterday; perhaps they felt a bit jaded at having to do the same trek a second day in a row.

I really like the photos that show the trail ahead of us. Such a beautiful morning!

Good Behavior

On the way down LDR-A Willow's behavior was 98% better this morning than yesterday; she still pulled a lot, but nothing equivalent to he...
