the weather man got it wrong (again)
the Sundance trails are drying out (finally!) and the week of warm temperatures has definitely helped the trail conditions. so, with this in mind, i decided to take a gander at the west slope of the Sundance trail system yesterday. i was sorely disappointed. i'm sure, when the snow finally does melt (in July?) these trails will be as killer as the ones on the east slope. but for now, they are still covered in 4-5 feet of sugary spring snow which makes for really good post-holing.
fyi ~ worst mistake of the day was forgetting the hand-held button for Artie's shock collar. i put the collar on her anyway, but after she figured out on attempt #1 that chasing deer would not result in a shock, (but she came back anyway), on attempt #2 she defiantly looked at me and then took off after the deer. thankfully she came back after only 5 minutes.
it was a fabulous weekend in the sunny Black Hills. i'm so glad the weather man got it wrong this time!
