Fabulous weather and new trail in Georgia.

This past weekend was absolutely perfect weather... lows in the 30's and high's in the low 60's. Not a cloud in the sky on Saturday.

Hubby and I took the horses to Sumac Creek trail in the Cohutta Wilderness area of North Georgia. This is a trail we have ridden several times and really love it, but there is a second loop of the trail we had not done before.

We got to the trailhead later than normal about 10am. Saddled up and got on the FS road that is closed to vehicle traffic and is mostly dirt but has a little gravel in it. The trail turns off the FS road about 1/3 mile from the trailhead we turned on it. The whole trail sort of makes a figure 8. We have had bad weather here and there was a lot of downed and nearly downed trees. Had to push one small pine off the trail, but didn't need to chop any apart. Our horses were great about stepping over big logs. When we got to the center portion of the "8" we chose to take the longer route and discovered another beautiful creek crossing, with 2 creeks merging to make one. It was absolutely breathtaking. We built a fire and had a wonderful late lunch and rest. Enjoying the water.

on the Way home we came to one of those metal gates that blocks those FS roads, it was down and laying flat on the ground. My mare Cait is usually so brave and will go most everywhere, usually the lead horse, My hubby's Elvis is the fraidy cat and has to follow. We get to the metal gate that is down and because of terrain we can't really go around so I ask Cait to step over the metal gate, she lowers her head to look at it and is startled and won't go over it... Elvis walks up and steps over like it was not even there. Cait then decided it wouldn't get her so she walked over like.. oh yea I can do it too.. Naturally hubby has not stopped bragging about how Elvis is such a wonderful horse!

We got back to the trailer and loaded up going home. got home about 6pm, had to then feed chickens and cows.. Oh well back to the real world.

Can't wait for next Saturday.
