|Kenai returned to his crag dog life this weekend.|
Mike and I finally headed out climbing together at Summersville Lake.
|So content to lie and wait for us to move along to the next crag.|
|A dirtball he is! But a happy dirtball.|
|This panorama is quite overexposed, but beyond the |
cliffline and through the trees is the lake.
|Obligatory ass shot. I was cleaning gear and about to rappel down.|
|Patient husky ball waits and watches the boats on the lake.|
|Mike and my ass as I prepare to rappel.|
|Rapping down from Chewy 5.10b|
|Photo posted to Instagram of me being a goon while I was rapping down.|
|Mike top roping his last route of the day. He'd previously led 4 routes.|
By this point, he was tired and our neighbors offered to let him shoot up
this route on TR to work through the pump (fatigue through his fingers
|This was Mike's first day back climbing in about 5 years. He really killed|
it! He led a 9, 10b, 7, 8, and TR'd a final 8. Solid first day back at it.
|Such an awesome husky! Gives me hope that I will indeed be able to replicate Kenai's grand husky behavior (recall) one day|
with another husky!
|We had dinner at Pies & Pints afterward. Mike's first visit. <3 this place.|
|Our new arena is finally complete!!|
The first event was this weekend, a cutting compeition!
|Choosing a cow from a deep cut.|
|Our arena comes with quite the view! Such a beautiful facility. I look forward to riding in it in coming months!|
|Saturday night I attended my first bachelorette party. The bride (childhood best friend) wanted us all in animal print for a |
"wild" night. Here we are leaving the hotel to head to dinner.
|T and I drank two of these massive alcoholic drinks at Hibachi. The center is 151 and, yes, it is on fire.|
|The drink came with these excessively long straws. |
T and I were amused.
|Obligatory photo of onion volcano on fire on the grill.|
|We stayed in this colorful location. It was a hotel, casino, dog track all in one. |
I would watch greyhound racing and gamble for the first time in my life on this night. Penny slots all the way, baby. lol
|I cheered for Brickhead Britt here. I tended to cheer for the smallest|
dogs in each race...or the one wearing the yellow silks haha.
|T's snapchat of a race. Dogs on track to right of photo.|
|All the lovely ladies.|
|Griffin kept walking his front legs forward in search of grass while refusing to move his hind legs until he was so stretched|
out that he nearly fell down. It was comical.
|Stocky mare is stocky. And in amazing shape. Both she and Griffin got a wealth of compliments on this day.|
|Kid on Q didn't have stirrups and had never ridden before! He did an amazing job and Q was a doll. Griffin did very well, too.|
|A lackadasical Q.|
Leadropes on round pen because each child was led there by an adult.
They were only permitted to "steer" their own mount when in closed areas.
|Q's rider's dad hopped on Griffin for a go. He even took Griffin on a jaunt around the barnyard outside of this round pen.|
Griffin continued to be a doll about everything.
I was very proud of my horses on this day.
