We loaded up and headed South on Thursday. Ride Brackens Loop on Friday and Snow Canyon on Saturday then drove home in a snow storm .
But we had great Southern Utah weather for the rides. Temps around 56° and blue skies on Friday that turned into overcast grey skies on Saturday as the cold front approached.
We rode out the Grapevine, then turned onto Brackens Loops and Old Spanish trail, after getting back to the truck we headed out on a second loop around the Dino Cliffs. It had a lot of sand that was good for the barefoot horses.
On Saturday we headed over and rode off the Upper lookout of Snow Canyon and rode down into 3 ponds canyon. This trail had a lot of volcanic rock and I noticed the horses getting a little sore footed and watching where they were steeping. There was also a lot of sand,
This was the first of the 3 ponds. Not a lot, but when you are in the desert, Any water is welcome.
Coming down trhu some of the volcanic rock areas
Dropping down into Snow Canyon.
All total for two days of riding, I got in 34 miles of trails.
