This is our fourth year coming out here. It is truly something we enjoy. Just books, music, hiking and being in the desert with Bailey and Chloe. Once a day I would tour part of the desert or run into town for supplies on my trusty Honda Trail 90.
The sand and rocks are tough on Vizslas' pads as they run through the riverbeds and sage brush desert. The bushes and plants have plenty of thorns. This is where quails, rabbits, and ground squirrels love to hide, so thorns in pads are common.
After every time out, I would apply "Musher's Secret" to their pads to keep them from drying and cracking. I get the 200 gram size.
The next morning, the ground was only just moist and the sky was on fire. I love the desert.
