Scenes from the Saddle

We took a four hour trail ride yesterday to the top of Beaver Mountain.  We traveled on rocky mountain trails, through forrest areas, across meadows with wildflowers beginning to bloom, and had gorgeous mountain views the whole time. 

The view from the top.

The horses get a rest at the top.
Our trail also included several interesting water crossings.  Lucky for me, I had a smart horse and I stayed dry.  Others cannot say the same.

We were also treated to lots of wildlife sightings along our ride, but as you can see, we really didn't have to go very far to see elk.  This guy decided to take a rest along the road just outside our campground.  
I try to post every night, but the internet service is not reliable, and sometimes so slow that I can't upload pictures.  So if you're a faithful follower  of our adventures, be patient, and keep watching.
