    Weird, my last message was blank!

    Congrats on the new job Dawn! You are really racking up the miles, hopefully the weather will cooperate and be gentle!

    I have very boring pictures, same stuff different day. All that I have are skinny trees, downed trees, baby pines, some ridgeline shots of the same trees, and a few bridges. Boring. I really need some new places to ride! The roads are risky because ppl drive really fast and erratic.

    No riding for me right now, a young relative died so busy with that right now.

    Dawn, congratulations on the new job!!! How exciting! Hope it is a good fit for you.

    Anita Ann, so sorry about the young relative. That is so hard to take. My prayers are with y'all.

    I would love to get out and ride but I am massively under the weather right now. Dang...I can't catch a break. I am a tough old chick though - I had steroids injected into my eardrum this week and then went for a dizzy test today. Going for MRI's tomorrow if I can drag my backside to Houston. Trying to get better so I can realize that dream of at least a 25 miler!!

    I agree!!! I love living here. There is alot of variety.
    I got out on another ride. I rode Champ 7 miles. We climbed over 1500 feet in elevation. Champ worked up a pretty good sweat with his thick winter coat, it got up to 45 degrees. But it is supposed to get cold and snow again tomorrow.

    Here is another view of part of the sunset cliffs,from a different angle.

    Here is Champ eating a well deserved dinner with some of his girlfriends.

    I'm going to have to get in on this thread! I've pretty much been ignoring it because I don't keep track of my miles. Laziness I guess because I would have to keep my GPS on and reset the mileage every ride.

    But I DO keep track of hours. I have a friend who keeps track of hours for the AQHA riding program. I don't do that as I don't have a Quarter Horse, but I have been keeping track of hours just for the fun of it.

    Today I rode for 4 hours on my "slow horse." We did trot quite a bit though. So I'm guessing at 3-4 miles and hour (considering we trotted a little) we probably covered at least 12 miles. I don't know the total for the year because I don't have my calender in front of me.

    But anyway, I see this is also just a fun thread for posting about your trail rides, so I will have to take my camera next time and get some pictures. In the meantime, here are some photos from last summer.

    A few days ago I was out on my mare following elk around and trying to get photos. But I only had my phone and the photos on there never come out well. You can't even see the elk. But I am going to start carrying my camera and get some elk shots for you guys!

    My mare is so funny because the elk make her very nervous, almost trembling, but she still follows them because I ask her to. And then afterwards she is so hyped she won't walk 1/2 the way home.

    Come on up. When I'm not working, all I need is an excuse to ride.

    So despite the coming storm, I was able to get Dream out today! We got a touch of snow/sleet first thing this morning, but it didn't amount to much and stopped about 9am. It was a cool 26 degrees with a pretty stiff wind (didn't want to look at what the temp was with windchill) when we left the barn about 11am.

    Ride was fantastic. Dream was moving out and having just as much fun as I was. We motored up the hills like nobody's business (6 weeks off? Ha!).

    Explored a couple side trails that unfortunately were all dead ends. Did 10 miles, then stopped back at the house to grab my dog Mia to accompany us on the last couple miles of the ride.

    The snow started about 15 minutes after we got back to the barn. And it is coming down.. they still aren't sure how much we may get. Saying likely 4-8", but a couple feet are still possible. Very glad I don't live around Boston, where some places may get 46"!!
