152/365 Cozy Dell
Took this one near the top of the first saddle of Cozy Dell trail (one mile long, 600 vertical ft. gain). I stopped there because some people that I passed on the way up told me they'd seen a Rattlesnake up at the top. So I figured it'd be better to stop a ways before there and mess with the camera. It was hot (about 85 at 11:00am) and the little gnats were pesting me so I didn't spend a ton of time posing the dogs perfectly. Just needed my photo proof of summit for my "trainer" who had prescribed the hike for me! I got the shot, then went the rest of the way to the top, and didn't wait to find the Rattler. So nice to go back down after an uphill climb!
