4/25/10, South of Pagosa Springs - With a long day yesterday and some steep hills this morning, I decided to make a short day of it. Iím currently 15 miles south of the center of Pagosa Springs on highway 84.
By this afternoon, Clementine was a bit better, but Iím still not very optimistic about her. I got a little food and water into her today, but her breathing is still very rapid and her extremities are cool. I didnít bother taking her temperature today, but I would say that she continues to have a problem with her circulation.
This morning, we entered the San Juan National Forest. Itís nice to be traveling through the Ponderosa, Fir, Spruce and Aspen trees. Not long after we entered the National Forest, we had to climb a pretty steep hill. It was about a half mile long and had a good 10% grade. Doc and Bill pull good together and are very competitive, each trying to outdo the other on hard pulls.
