Out of the valley

June 8, 2014

On Sunday I reluctantly left Seiad Valley and rode toward Donomore Meadows.  For the first time in about two weeks, I decided to try riding Takoda, who seemed to be recovered.  As I headed up a steep climb out of the valley, Bill Roberts was busy helping my mom (again!) as she moved my truck back to Interstate 5, and he gave her a ride back into town to get her camper.  But the best laid plans often go bad, and Takoda proved not yet ready for the trail.  I had to call my mom and she altered her agenda to meet me up at Cook and Green pass with the camper and the trailer with Shyla, as I was going to have to switch horses.  It was disappointing, but we made the best of it with a pleasant camp near a mountain spring, and Bill was even kind enough to come up and check on us to make sure we were okay.  The next morning when I left to complete the ride into Donomore on Shyla, he actually began clearing the trail with a chain saw from the other side, making our ride so much easier!  What a true trail angel and terrific all-around guy!
