Pack of Dogs

Today I rode 9.5 miles at Springton Manor Farm. It was a beautiful morning--- sunny and temperature in the low 60's. The Fantom 29 performed flawlessly-- good climbing a smooth shifting.

One item of interest happened during the ride. Usually there is nobody else on the trails at 8:00 am on Sundays. I was going pretty fast on a downhill when I came around the corner and there was a pack of dogs! There was a woman with nine big dogs (only two of them were on leashes). They started quite a commotion when they saw me.

I was so startled that I didn't even get a picture. The woman was able to gather them up quickly and move on up the trail. I did ask her if all the dogs were hers and she said she was pet sitting.
