I have been visiting my family up in Idaho. We have been doing all kinds of fun "country" things. One of the things I have been able to do is go on a horse ride with my neice, Keegan. I only get to ride about once a year, when I come to visit. So Keegan decided that I should ride with her to Dry Lake. It's about a 5 hour ride! A lot for someone who only rides once in a great while.
It was all up hill and then all down hill. It was beautiful country. Keegan was afraid it would be too hot if we went very late in the day, so we got up at 5:15 AM so we could be out the door with the horses and horse trailer by 6 AM. My family is getting me up early and out the door every day of my vacation!
For some reason my pictures didn't load in order, but this is pretty high up the side of the mountain. You can tell a little bit about the steepness in this photo of my neice.
The horse trailer is down at the cross roads in this photo. I was very grateful for Apache hauling my behind all the way up the mountain. He is a great trail horse, going up and down hills, over rocks, fallen logs, through creeks, over fence rails and through trees.
My neice believes in being prepared. She was well armed for any occasion. She wants me to tell everyone that the gun is a 22 Winchester Mangum. And that is quite the knife she has in front. Thank goodness there was no need for any of the firepower or hand to hand combat.
