Augustus and I had an amazing time together today. I mean, it just doesn't get any better. He spent the first part of the morning playing with his Mustang buddy, Iceman, then we went off by ourselves on a nice two hour ride to the base of the Mesquite Mountain Range. The weather was perfect...warm and sunny with a slight breeze and barely a cloud in the sky.
The Mesquite Mountains are on the California side of Sandy Valley, and basically make up the western border of the Mesquite Valley from San Bernadino County to Inyo County. The area is all wilderness and you could ride all the way into Death Valley if you were packed and prepared enough.
