I hadn't been out with Sofie in a couple of weeks so I decided to take her out to Mars Court and get us both some exercise. It's been very hot lately and I don't want to subject the dog to too much heat. I don't want to kill the poor animal. It was only supposed to be in the 80s today instead of the 90s, with some clouds, so this was our chance to get outside.

We left from the house and stopped at the trailhead for a drink of water. I could tell that Sofie was working hard. We went down Turkey Trot to David Canyon and then up the canyon a mile or so before we stopped for our next break. Sofie needed to lie down and catch her breath so we stayed for an extra long time. We stopped at a spot of forest of Ponderosa that had recently been cut down for the thinning. It was eerily quiet there.

We continued with our loop ride and took Wild Turkey back up to Mars Court. I offered Sofie one last drink of water but she wouldn't take it so we headed for home.
