Riding on a promising day up to Stony Mountain, I had to get off at the "cedar ally" part of the trail....
many hooves over the winter have made it very deep with mudd and trenches. It already is hard to see the ground through the thick, softly reaching branches!
This trail , I had to clear myself, last winter, as no one was using it.
I reached the top of the clearcut view point ...with it's unique -Vantage point view- of the newest Clear cutting
ridge....they seem to have left a row of trees at the top...looks like feathers!
I was amazed with the total HAZE affect.....The first sunny day of Spring approaching and ALL THE FIRE FREAKS start up burning...musty be a country thing...
I think I counted a least 10 this day!!
One in the distance-zoomed in~ adding to the very white-out-sky conditions
I took a look at my GPS (yup- still have it) while Wa mare ate some new spring grasses that were still sparse .....and we traveled :
a little over 4 miles
1 hour 17 min
Max Speed 18 mph
Move average 4.7mph
This is the part that is newest...the elevation stats....
1,100 elevation to
UP 726 Feet!
We were able to see our little "Tree Farm Glen", that is next to my mare's stall~
And I zoomed in on my PBO's house too!
Was a good Spring day ride...that I shared the burden of the rocky decent with my mare...by dismounting for the
road down...she seems to appreciate it~
