Sofie and I went to Mars Court and cruised around on the trails. I'm trying to gradually build up her strength and endurance and at the same time figure out how much she needs to drink and how often we have to stop for breaks. So far so good as far as rides of two to three hours go. We stop every four to five miles and she drinks but I'm sure she could drink more. She drinks quite a bit when we get home. I'm trying to get her to drink before we leave the house but so far that hasn't worked. If we go for any rides that are longer than three hours I will have to plan carefully, especially as the days begin to get hotter.

It was a quiet day on the trails. We did see some hikers with a big German Shepherd but they went on Drop In trail and we turned up the road. We went up the road to the ridge and then went in the reverse direction on Turkey Trot from what we usually do. From there it was down into David Canyond and then up Wild Turkey to the trailhead and back to the house.

It was a very nice day, mostly sunny, with temps in the low 60s.
