Many thanks to SN for hitting Thor with me yesterday after what I heard was a TOUGH Saturday. I had a blast, especially on the descent running from the potential rain! :eek:

Awesome everyone! Beautiful and with some funny pictures.
Yes..that belly floppy one is a classic :lol: :lol: ...it is cute I think! I would have loved to have seen that bear..I went on a bear call on Monday..but when I got to the location he or she bear had already left the scene.

Thank you for sharing everyone! Very nice :)
