Little Elbow Kananaskis Alberta

What a fantastic weekend in our backyard - Kananaskis Country. It was only our second venture into this area an hour or so west of Calgary Alberta, and we can't believe how beautiful it was. Both Strider (my Tenn/Saddlebred X) and Meadow (my husbands Appy) were fantastic crossing rivers and climbing hills. We camped overnight and unfortunately Strider had a bit of a swollen leg in the morning so we made the choice to trailer home, doctor him up and be ready for the next trip. If you haven't already been, get this one on your bucket list of trail rides!truck trailer and view.jpg

Pretty App! Looks like fun. I hope someday to be able to trailer my boy to nice spots like that.

Thanks so much! He was much better the following day, and we had a wonderful ride this afternoon a little closer to home.

Hey QOS, notice you have a Garmin blog. I'm shopping for a GPS and wondered what you'd recommend?
