    Weekend Ride

    My daughter who is off at college came home and brought her two room mates ( 1 from New York and 1 from South Carolina) So I took them up to Jackson Hole for a weekend camp out and ride.

    We arrived Thursday afternoon and did a short evening ride, A good long ride around Two Oceans Lake on Friday and 28 mile ride up tp Granite Creek on Saturday.

    Heading out from Jackson Lake trail head


    Looking back at the Tetons as we ride past Emma Matilda Lake


    Two Oceans Lake, The trail goes around this lake


    Looking East, back at two oceans lake from Grand View


    Looking West at the Tetons from Grand View. That's Jackson Lake in the foreground. Our truck/trailer is parked near it.


    We rode along Granite Creek on Saturday


    Camped out with the horses


    Hobbled the horses morning and evening to let them graze


    Granite Creek trail is pretty steep in places. Here we drop down to cross the river and you can see the trail climb the other side


    Now we are on the other side looking back across at where we just came from


    Here is the trail above what we are looking back across


    All in all, we had a great time.

    Nice cutthroat trout in the stream. 12-14" pretty common, Occassional 20" if you are lucky.

    The sorel horse is Porter, he is a 1/2 arab/1/2 Saddlebred gelding. Has a big trot and likes to go. I used to ride him, but my daughter has pretty much stolen him to be her horse. She is off to college this summer, so my younger two daughters have staked their claim to him. They both seem to have a need for speed. I've been more content to let them ride him and I have gravitated to the Foxtrotters.
