Well I finally made it back from our trip out to the mountains on the blogger trail ride. It was so much fun. I convinced a girl from our barn to go with me and she was pretty nervous, but I think it was a good time over all.
We left from Drum and drove, even Charlene drove for a while, but mostly took pictures out the windows of mountains and the cool color of the mountain water.
We got to Jaffrey and met up with Shirley from Ride a good horse, and we followed her to the base of the mountain where we met up Janice at Own a Morgan and she led us up the mountain. Its a radio controlled road, so she had the radio to let anyone coming down know we were on the road. We had a flat tire just south of Calgary, but not a big deal, we got it changed and kept going, then about 4 kms from camp, another tire was shredded.
This caused the fron tire to go flat as well, so there we were on the side of a mountain with two flat tires and no spare. Luckily one of Shirley's tires fit on the trailer and we limped out way up to the campsite. While Dave took our horses in his trailer.
We finally got there, got the horses out of the trailer and set up the tent.
Our horses spent the night tied to the trailer because there was a community corral, but other people had their horses there and we we uneasy about keeping ours with them. Shirley had a separate pen for Beamer, and Janice and Dave highlined their horses.
Then Saturday morning, I went with Shirley down to Cranbrook and got new tires for my trailer and Charlene went on a ride with Janice and Dave.
The scenery in camp was beautiful, we were prolly about 20 feet from the river, which was the start of the trail.
Both Shirley and Janice brought 3 dogs, so it was kinda chaotic in camp, but they were well behaved.
The dogs were very focused on us throwing the stick for them, especially Sage.
Shirley set up a hammock and the dogs loved it, Charlene and Callie,
And Shirley and Tess in the dark.
Then Tucker (the only dog that wasnt a border collie) and Callie playing with a stick
The view of the mountains was just amazing, I took tons of pictures of them.
