We rode all day through flat and rolling hills, passing some wells , where we could get water for outself and the horses and the day seem to stretch into Eternety. The Smoke cover was still there, but the air was ok to breath. After about 40 km we found an other well, with running water and let the horses drink, shortly after the rancher showed up and asked if we needed some help. The Valley was filled heavily with the smoke of the fire and we asked if he could get us a lift up to the Hwy 12 cutting the last 15 km off the day. He agreed and 40 min. later we where at a cowboy church at Hwy 12, where the owner of an other corrall permitted us to stay, and even supplied us with some hay.
