5 hour hill hike with 3 Vizslas

 Five hours hiking the Las Trampas Wilderness Area with fellow Vizsla owner Dwight, and I am worn out.  We covered over 12 miles of hill terrain this morning.  Bailey, Chloe and Dwight's 7-month-old male, Paxton, started at 7:30 this morning.  It was going to be a 2 1/2 hour walk.

Once we got going, we just kept on going and going and going.  By 10 a.m. (2 1/2 hours in) we were 6 plus miles away from our trucks.

For being in the middle of the San Francisco Bay Area, for many hours we were in a "wilderness."

Dwight is just a few years older than I am.  He admitted near noon that he had never taken a 12 mile hike in his life.  He did well. 
 I love these hikes.  We came across a hiker, who said he has attempted to walk every East Bay trail.  We talked for a while on Las Trampas Peak.  There is a 20-mile hike he told me about that I am excited about doing this summer.  

A morning walk with very few people, absolutely no cars, roads or man made objects.  I liked it!

*jealous* We are so out of shape with the combo of Riley recovering & her being in heat. Looking forward to getting back into the hills for some long hikes.
