And, We’re Off!
It isn’t dawn yet. Outside my window, the hills flow silver with moonlight. No songbirds call. Only the rooster is awake. And the horses. They heard me rise, saw lights flicker on in the house, and sent up a chorus for their breakfast. The dogs have gone back to bed. Coffee brews.
I can’t sleep. In just a few hours, Ironman and I will set off for the Owyhee Canyonlands 2010 Multi-Day. We’re taking both Consolation and Acey. Acey’s first camping trip! I can scarcely wait to be in ridecamp again, see endurance friends, grill lamb chops, drink beer, and RIDE. I hope to complete two 50’s on Consolation, then do the Saturday 12-15 mile, non-competative trail ride on Acey, purely as a training exercise. Cross your fingers for us!
Just a few hours…
(PS How about that old photo of Consolation? She was only three when I snapped it.)
