This is Cedar Falls - absolutely not one drop of water coming over the Falls - it has been a very dry September!
I was forced to pose in the dappled sunlight at the bottom of the steps I would soon have to climb!
The entire area is cliffs and caves and boulders and beautiful big trees!
Taking a break from strenuous hiking!
Wish the photo was better (funny because if you were there, you would've marvelled at the quality of the light)!
Any way, we had a great time! I was super tired and slept all the way home!
Then on Saturday mom said it would be our last sunny, nice day for awhile, so she set up a course in our backyard using all of our equipment (except a broad-jump type jump). She made the chute the first obstacle because we see that in trials all the time now. The weaves were the third obstacle (she wanted to see if I would do them early in the course since that was a problem at our last trial). She also put in a little distance stuff for fun. The dogwalk is going well except that any time we take the hoopy thing away from the contact zone, I jump the contact zone. We're not sure how we'll ever fix that issue. (I bailed on the dogwalk in class the other night when mom ran well ahead of me and tested me to see). But I did my tunnel/DW discrimination and then ran fast through the pinwheel that mom handled extremely unconventionally (on purpose?). It was very fun! On the video is my first try. We ran a few more times but the first was the best.
Hope you all had a great weekend! Congratulations to Team USA competing at the 2009 FCI Agility World Championships especially the Medium Team (including Jenn Crank and Blaster) winning the silver in the team competition! Way to go, Jenn!
