Let's see pictures of your trails!
I went on a ride up the hill today. Here's a picture of "the hill." See the teeny tiny break between the trees? I timed us today. It took us 22 minutes to walk the flat, and run up the hill. =]

And some scenary along the way...

And the view from the top. =]

And for kicks, my wonderful mare, all tired and sweaty when we finally got home.

Next time we're out I'll take the camera :D I have a ton of photos of our trails but they are on another computer.
I mow/maintain about 5 miles of trails behind our house. Mostly just trimming back trees and keeping them mowed.
I have a photo of Saro crossing our creek I can add.

I wish we had creeks. It would be something we can work on. Of course, Ricci walks through puddles without a problem, so I don't think a creek would be too big of a deal. So maybe I'd rather have a good river to swim across. =]

We ride the desert in the winter months and the high country during the summer.

Antelope Island ( island in Great Salt Lake) is close by and doesn't get too much snow, so we ride it a lot in the winter.

The Bonneville Shoreline trail, follows the old shoreline of the ancient Lake Bonneville along the foothills of Northern Utah. It's really close to home and easy to easy ride winter or spring. Too hot in the summer.

If I've got time to stay over night, we often go places like Bryce Canyon during the spring months.

Once summer is here we are off to the high country.

Painted Horse, those pictures are absolutely gorgeous.

^^ Agreed. I love the one with all the yellow flowers.

We don't have anything quite so breathtaking here, mostly rolling hills with a few caprocks and creeks (not very many though).

(same hill just a newer pic)

And I hope you don't mind if I add a video. This is part of the rougher terrain we have around here.

^^^You have a steady hand on the video. Looks like so many areas around here, even the scrub cedars and cattle trails.

While this doesn't show it I live in a densely populated area. I come from the horizon to the north. I circle the lake to the right then work my way northwest to just about the horizon. I make this run about 4 times a week once the bugs are gone which is about now until the snow flies and then I move out on the snowmobile trails

I'm jealous, you all have prettier trails than I do, haha. Especially Painted Horse. Those pictures are breathtaking. =]

Here's couple different trails we've gone on...nothing too special, this isn't even the cool stuff we could take, just simple trails since Thunder just learning.
