Just Out for a Walk

Just Out for a Walk



 



If we have time, Ellen and I often go on a hike after we ride.  The easiest thing to do is to just walk on the hill that leads to the river—that way, we don’t have to drive anywhere.  We typically do 3 trips up and down.  It is a…

Dante’s Dark Side

Dante’s Dark Side

 

Ellen was working Sunday, and I thought I would take advantage of the great weather and ride Dante on the trail. I knew I couldn’t cross the river because I already rode down there with Cole Train.  We would have to do the hill multiple times.

The Goldenrod Ride

The Goldenrod Ride

 

My sister and I love to ride up to the show ring trails all the time—but particularly when the goldenrod is blooming. Sunday was a chilly, sunny morning—a perfect day to see the goldenrod. Instead of Dante, Ellen took Ranger. Ranger loves…
