I had planned on doing an overnight but that insane weather forecast got me worried about Saturday. I don't mind hiking in storms but I don't necessarily need to backpack in them-- especially not with the dog.

So I decided I would still go up the Mazzies and take Lily. I feel like I did a couple hikes with her early summer that turned into death marches for her. Now that's its cooling down, I want to be a bit more careful and make sure she is doing hikes she enjoys so that she'll be willing to do harder ones further down the road. I also want to get her to where she's trustworthy off-leash. I decided Barnhardt would be perfect for this.

I had her off leash as soon as we hit the canyon and she was perfect all day. She listened to commands and never left the trail. If she would stop to sniff something for too long-- as soon I was close to out of sight she would sprint to catch up. We passed one large group of hikers and she didn't even charge at them with her unstoppable happiness.

We turned around below the falls. I let her cool down under that overhang before heading down-- that slab of rock is always chilly :D
