Beautiful landscape, awsome cave. I love dobes little poofy ears, super cute. You actually have hills were you live. When I went to Texas (Austin) there were NO hills, zip zilch natta. Which was really diffrent, because were I live its basically all hills.
RG, it's funny that you should say that because I can drive 70 miles south and there isn't a hill to be found LOL. I think we have just the right combination. I don't like a lot of hills or mountains or too many trees. I start feeling claustrophobic if I can't see the horizon.
Thanks you guys, and by all means if any of you are ever in my neck of the woods, let me know and I'll take you for a ride .
I'm jealous. As most of the other midwesterners, this is all I get to look at on the trail, with the occasional open pasture. I'm not saying it isn't pretty, but there isn't much variety.
Oh, and Maggie doesn't like getting her picture taken
^ There is one spot on a trail where you have to practically lay on you horses neck to get through. A large tree fell on the trail and there is just enough room to pass under it. Since I ride a 14.2 mare, and I am extremely short, its no problem. For those who are 5'8" and have 16 hand horses, its a bit of a tight squeeze.
Being out in the wide open space would rock my world a bit. I think I'd get lost easier in the open than I would in the woods.
LOL. Down where I ride, there are no trails (other than the occasional deer trails you come across). The clipped areas you see with the truck tracks are only on the tops of the hills and the hunters usually get out and walk down into the trees and such so basically you have to find your own way around down there. If you can't get through in one spot, then you backtrack and go a bit farther down the canyon until you can find a break in the trees or the cliff wall . The good thing is, its basically impossible to get lost. You can go to the top of any hill and see the town water tower so you at least have some bearing of which direction you need to go to get back. Not to mention visibility up here rocks. Those 4 hills way off in the distance in this picture are actually about 20 miles away. That's why I never need a GPS around here. I have ridden almost every inch of land within 10 miles of my house and if I do get turned around, all I have to do is ride to the top of a hill to get my bearings.
