I live in Oregon and we have finally had a warming trend. It was 37 degrees today!!!
We took the herd to our favorite trail nearby and rode in the snow. Bunker 122013.jpg
The reserve used to be a military base and internment camp during WWII, and there are at least 12 of these bunkers on the ride. Kim, Millie & April 122013.jpg
This is Kim riding Millie, our "little baby girl" and ponying April. Riding in snow 122013.jpg

We rode for 2 hours in the snow. We ran up on a small buck and two little does, then saw the hunters, a man and his child. I waved and said hello but they weren't very friendly despite the fact that we had moved the deer right into them. We rode off in the opposite direction as the deer to avoid being shot. The preserve pretty much has no rules: trapping, hunting, dogs off leash, horses...I have never seen an ATV there but I have never seen a sign posted that says you can't.
I think next time we will wear something brighter.
