There were four sweep rides this weekend due to the Labor Day Holiday. I did three King of the Mountain rides and one Golden Eagle.
The weather was very nice with no rain and temps generally in the 70s.
Debbie brought Sofie up to the top of the mountain on Monday and she followed me down King of the Mountain trail at the end of the day. The trail does a lot of switching back and forth across the mountain and it didn't take Sofie long to figure out that if she hangs back and watches which way the trail goes that she can shortcut the trail and save herself some steps. She is a smart dog.
We went all the way down the mountain without stopping for a break. That's more than eight miles. That's the longest Sofie has gone without getting a drink of water along the way. She was thirsty when we got to the parking lot.
