Running with Sam and Presto at Briones! Gorgeous! Briones is super nice when the grass is all green :-). Today was a good day for animal sightings. Aside from the usual cows, we saw a herd of goats, a pair of coyotes (maybe juveniles?), a red tailed hawk, a lizard, 2 snakes (one really big one!), and several turkeys.
Towards the end, Sam pealed off to take a shorter route home, and Presto and I continued to the end of the loop. Presto and I hit a cow traffic jam where a bunch of cows decided to sleep on the trail. They had calves with them, and Presto is overly interested in cows, so we went off-trail to sort of sneak around the cows. The cows were not impressed and started snorting at us, which Presto apparently could care less about because he decided right in front of the cows would be the best place for a bathroom stop. I was a bit concerned about getting mauled by a cow, which seems like an ignominious way to die, but luckily the cows were never worried enough to actually try to do anything to us.
Otherwise, the run felt good, and I was glad to be out and about in the sun!
