Friday September 30 2011
Another awesome 50 mile day with Jose!! It was his first time to do 4 days in a row.
We rode to the Joyce Ranch again, and up Sinker Canyon again,
but this time we continued another couple miles right up the canyon. Amazing rhyolite red cliff walls tower over the creek.
One cliff has 4 golden eagle nests on it (the eagles will use a different nest each year).
After a vet check we headed up to the foot of the Owyhee mountains again
and further up Bates Creek Canyon on a trail I'd never been before,
back down to Pickett Creek (Jose sees horses far in the distance)
and back towards home.
Jose was strong all day again - he's amazing. I Love Jose! One more day to go!
