Mt. Elsay loop trail last weekend, but no Mt. Elsay this time. No peaks bagged, actually. With the forgiving snowpack long gone, we are discovering just how clumsy she is now. Vestibular is still with her. You know that boulder field up to Elsay that she cruised up or down at least once a year? Well, she can't do it unassisted any longer. We made it up, but it was a lot of work to get her up for both of us. Won't be going that way again.
She did good for the rest of the route and I am quite proud of her.

She has cataracts developing and her hearing is slowly declining. Apparently she is losing control of her bladder too. She'll be 14 soon, so nothing unexpected. She's still very vibrant, energetic and enthusiastic.
