10/1/12, Topaz Lake, NV - (Coord. N. 38 deg, 48.219 min; W. 119 deg. 36.444 min)
In spite of the fact that the lads had to climb 1300 feet in elevation, this was a nice travel day, one in which I met a lot of good people.
After breaking camp this morning, I stopped off at the feed store across the street to fill my water tank. The lads then pulled the wagon back to the main highway and once more started south. I knew I had a large hill to pull so Doc was dressed up in his harness waiting to go into action.
5 miles down the road, I was about to start climbing the first hill, so I put Doc out front, where he could lift his tail in a proud salute and start leading the boys up the incline.
