[RC] Tevis video - Michigan Bluff - Lucy Chaplin Trumbull

Got the next video up - the front 8 riders coming through
Michigan Bluff:

This year they moved the vet check about two miles further
down the trail, so there was no stop at Michigan Bluff.

Prior to Michigan Bluff, the horses have just negotiated
El Dorado canyon which drops from the ghost town of
Deadwood (4,365') to El Dorado Creek (1,700'), then
back up to Michigan Bluff (3,500') in six miles.

Worth noting - the Reynolds taking the time to untack
and cool their horses (they rested them in the shade for
a few minutes), before continuing on.

(also notice John Crandell and a helper frantically splishing
water on Sunny's belly and back legs right at the very start
of the video.)

Enjoy.
