|Heading out, peep that double mane!|
Thankfully, any time I message V, she is pretty much down with the idea to wander through the wilderness. We set a day and met up after work on last Wednesday with the idea to check the Ecological reserve trail, which branches off to the river and eventually back down to my barn.
|Crossing a steep section with a small stream running|
(This is the exact stream we had a little spook at on the way back haha)
It was a bit of a longer ride than we had initially planned, as the one trail head was completely flooded a few minutes in due to beavers damming up the area. We had to completely abandon that trail section, retrace our steps back down to my barn area and cross a low spot in the river - the entire process of having to turn back and find a new trail head added about 40 minutes to our overall ride time.

It was nice tho. Aside from the spook due to the dog, she was wonderful. Even when V's mount was being a bit of a naughty boy.
Overall a nice long, quiet ride in the woods with a good friend. What more could you ask for?!

Spud also got out for a nice 4.6k drive, and we had some spectacular views as well:

river. So pretty!
