We made an unscheduled trip to Green Mountain yesterday. We had planned on spending the weekend at Indian Camp but the plans got changed.
We headed in from the north, Wildcat, entrance this time around and I wouldn't recommend it for stock use. Parking area is small, lots of glass on the ground. Bleah. (The south entrance is SO much better) Other than that the ride was fine. Followed the Wildcat trail to the horse camp (Still kicking myself for not making space on the calendar to go there before it closed!) and then circled down past the gravel pit and then back down the hill. For more info on the trails at Green Mountain click HERE. I'll add the north side data in the next day or so.
Plenty of leaves were changing colors, and falling here as well as up high. It's always nifty to see the golds, reds, browns of the fallen leaves contrasted against the deep greens of the ferns and evergreens.
The wee tiny, yet VERY furry, Icelandic was sweating a bit so rather than stress her we shortened the ride to just a couple of hours, and didn't go faster than a walk. I do believe it was one of our more leisurely rides this year! Gotta get her clipped soon, before she really gets yak like. It's amazing how fast their winter coat comes in. Hard to believe that just over a month ago she was positively svelte and sleek as we rode all over the Mt Adams area
