We made it up the treacherous road to Cave Lake State Park and since then we've climbed our two highest peaks of the ride! Beautiful views, but tough work. Ryan's parents drove down from Washington to camp with us for a couple days. It's nice to have company. Plus, this evening they're our horse sitter - and Ryan and I are driving into Ely to have dinner at our favorite restaurant to celebrate my birthday (tomorrow) and our anniversary (yesterday). We've seen lots of deer, elk, sage grouse, and one rattle snake this week.
We've traveled 300 miles now, which is crazy to think about! Still have a ways to go though. We may be moving slowly, but we're certainly making progress. We're getting ready to head into a tougher couple weeks, out of the mountains crossing a lot of desert. But, we have a good routine going and I'm not too worried.
Everyone is doing well. Sage is getting fit and muscled up. He seems happy and it's obvious he's enjoying exploring the trails. Bella is doing miles with us again now that her paw is healed. In short, all is well and we are having fun! We'll continue chugging along and I'll update again when I'm able!
