One of the best things about the ride was not only the company of my good friend Clara and her horse Major, but also the fact that this was probably the most relaxed ride my horse has ever given on the trail. There were a few moments (scary unseen dog behind fence before trail head, horses in distance on the trail that he coulda SWORE where bears), but overall, he was so relaxed, traveling on a loose rein and a free shoulder. It was certainly a pleasant ride indeed.

|Dang coyote. Sure made us think of Melissa, Grace, and Belle's encounter only a week prior!|
|We made it to the "Enchanted Forest!" But ran out of time. Next time.|
|Major managed to get the tall grass stalks.|
|Milo, did not. But staring intently might have psychologically done the trick.|
