We just arrived at our campsite ending our 5th day on the trail. Things are going well, despite a few challenges. The biggest issue is the heat, which I expected. Luckily we have electrolytes for Sage and myself so we're pushing through. One day was so hot we took a siesta midday and finished up our mileage after sunset! We're now in the White Pine Range, enjoying some elevation and respite from the heat. Everyone is doing well. Sage seems to have settled into the routine of getting up at 5am and riding out around 6:30. My feet were not ready for the amount of walking I've been doing and I'm suffering from some nasty blisters, but otherwise good. Bella has been keeping up with us in the morning but joining Ryan in the truck once it gets too hot. We've seen quite a few wild horses and were charged by stallions several time, but of course I always have my handy plastic bag in my saddle bag to scare them off! We just missed some storms yesterday and today; they stayed just to the north of us. Anyway, all is well - we're covering some ground and having fun! Ryan's taking good care of us. I'll update again next week!
