We are in our 2nd week in BV. We’ve been doing something outdoors every day. The terrain is rough and it’s tough on Izzy so I got her some socks for walking on gravel. They work great until we find a river.
Every morning we go to the dog park at sunrise. This was the view on Monday morning.
Monday afternoon, we hiked a longer trail on the other side of the river. The new trail goes a little higher up so we got a bigger view of BV.
Today I went back to Avalanche Trailhead for my last big climb before the Jemez race this weekend. I wanted to break my 1:22 time to the saddle, and I did with a 1:10. I felt great and can definitely feel myself becoming acclimatized. I climbed the little peak to the right which took me over 12k feet. I decided to run down and made it in 38 minutes.
