Spent the morning driving a herd of cattle through the valley for a few miles. They would NOT get off the trail – just kept going forward.

Passed a couple groups of boy scouts going in the opposite direction. Stayed at another crappy campsite – literally – it was full of cow and horse poop* – because I didn’t have the energy to go one more mile. I was just exhausted – so exhausted that while I should have been ravenous, I didn’t want to eat. I forced half of supper down and saved the rest for Cassie’s breakfast.

*Why is it that we are required to clean up after our dogs on the trail and bury their pooh just like we have to bury our human pooh but people don’t have to clean up after their horses?!? Seriously. What’s the reasoning on that?
