How to celebrate

The top, about to drive down to Rico
The trail we decided to check out...
It would be a fun mountain bike ride...
One of the awesome views...
The dirt road we were on....

What does a girl do when she gets home to celebrate her win? She goes for a hike:)

Michael and I drove a dirt road from outside of Dolores, past Dunton, to Rico(~30miles). I had never been on that road and it was AWESOME! Most of it is national forest with some private land stuck in the middle of it and their are hiking, biking, horseback trails littered along the way.

Dunton was really cool to check out because right when you think you are in the middle of nowhere this small town pops up, how cool!

We hiked one trail for a bit but didn't get to far out because of the weather but it was still amazing! The overall trip was about 3hrs with some good walking to stretch out the legs a bit. On the way out, the bow hunters were headed in so it was perfect timing. I can't wait to get back up there and explore more but with hunting season and snow on the way, it may have to wait a while:(

On a side note-the night I got home(~11pm), Miller thought my ego was getting big from my big win over the weekend, so he decided to go outside and get sprayed by a skunk, just bringing me back to earth.....thanks bud.

The solution that gets it off:

In a plastic bucket(nothing closed or it will explode):

1 quart hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
2 teaspoons of liquid soap
Douse dog, wait ~10min, rinse off
Repeat the next couple of days
Warn your friends that he stinks:)
