This adventure begins with riding about half a mile down a busy road. Lot of fast cars and motorcycles! Luckily the traffic doesn't bother Cupid, though I always worry because you never know how stupid the drivers are going to be. We passed by a house which was trimming trees and chipping the wood. Cupid definitely looked at that but walked past it. He was nervous, but being a good boy. We got to the park, and there were quite a few hikers. The trails start with a pretty steep descent. Cupid was walking fast, but otherwise good. He whinnied once and I think looking for his buddies. We walked a little ways down, I figured that was enough for one day and we turned back. I let him trot a little ways back up, but didn't want to go too fast and bowl over the hikers! He was the same the rest of the way back, a little quick but didn't try anything naughty. We passed the tree trimmers again without incident.
