Hugs and prayers, Denise!!
I am glad you got out to ride! Do you think he has a little thrush from standing by the round bale?
Dawn, what a lovely ride!! Sorry you missed the SC ride, though.
I may have killed DH and DS yesterday.....We have GREAT PBS stations here in KY, and there is an outdoor show, similar to Texas Country Reporter. He did a spot on Mammoth Cave trails, and showed the Cedar Sink, which is on a hiking trail, not a horse trail, so I had never been there. On the map, it is a .8 mile long trail. With 4700 steps. Plus the many, many steps to get down into the sink. It was AWESOME!!! DH stayed at the rim, and DS and I ventured down the steps, around the beautiful blue hole at the bottom, up the other side steps, circled around and snuck up on DH from the other side.
It is a HUGE, DEEP spot where the cave collapsed, and so it has shear rock walls, and the underground river runs out of the rock on one side, and back in the rock in a few hundred feet further. The water trickle made little frozen water falls.
THEN, we had to hike down into the cave to listen to the brass quintet, and hike further in to hear the Cavemen Chorus. They were SO much fun!! We do a lot of stuff here in KY in caves, lol! Then, we had to hike back up and out. Ain't no step for a stepper!! Dh and DS, however......
