I just LOVE IT when I can ascend to (what feels to me like) the top of the world. It's so exciting to have a 360 degree view that goes on for miles and miles in all directions. I want to ride my horse and sail out over all that I can see and beyond.
Dexter is a great Missouri Fox Trotter owned by Peggy and Harry Ring. He's fabulous to ride in high alpine country. Sure footed and savvy on the mountain trails and super smooth when we were gaiting in the valley below !!
Wild flowers were gorgeous and at their peek but you'll have to take my word for it because I didn't take any photos, I was too busy admiring them and taking in all the scenery while riding the trail.
On the way, back close to the end of our ride, Harry told us that he had checked the weather for this day and we were supposed to have a 40% chance of thundershowers. Thundershowers in the high country can be pretty sudden and quite loud !! BLESS MOTHER NATURE for waiting until evening before she dumped her 40%, making it a PERFECT DAY !! Warm and sunny for us and then some good moisture in the evening to keep everything green and beautiful.
