Day 3 completed with Jose!
5000 AERC miles for me and the Raven!! (And 1645 miles for Jose, and Jose's first time to do 3 days in a row.)
Another gorgeous trail, (parts of it I'd never seen before), north across the highway through the Birds of Prey National Conservation Area and part of the Oregon Trail,
and up a cool wash-canyon,
to the vet check,
then down through the Joyce Ranch and up lower Sinker Canyon,
above and along the reservoir,
into the narrow canyon, past beaver ponds and cliffs with golden eagle nests.
Jose was awesome, as usual, just as strong at the end of the day 3 as he was at the start of Day 1.
3 days down, 2 more to go.
I Love Jose!
