Where we were riding, the Bad Land Cliffs are about 8000 feet -- high enough to be cool, but low enough to be dry and mostly snow free. We aimed for the distant patch of snow in the above photo (on the 9000 ft ridge to the right of center), but we didn't make it that far. There were too many canyons and hills along the way and we didn't want to run out of daylight.
Since Daisy had no snow and we didn't come across any water, I laid my waterproof jacket in a depression and used it as a bowl to give her a drink. Daisy said thank you as she lapped up most of a liter.
The horses were satisfied with green grass for lunch, while we ate a snack and admired the wildflowers:
On the way back, we saw an antelope. Daisy gave short chase, but the antelope outdistanced her in no time.
Coco was ready to go home. "Hurry up!" he seemed to say when Daisy, Mischief and I dawdled.
