Here are some pictures from our trip. Now maybe I can get back into a regular blog entry! LOL!
With trying to get the horses in shape for this trip and getting sheep and goats sheared this fall time has been limited.
But, boy was it worth the hours conditioning the horses! It was beautiful!!
We went to Big Creek Trail Rides . It is about two hours east of Springfield, Missouri.
|One of the beautiful river crossing. This is on the Current River.|
|This is David and Adele, the couple we went with to the camp.|
|This is Starman and Cruise, David and Adele's two horses.|
|The water making those little 'rapids' is all coming from an underground spring!! This is also on the Current River.|
|Trying to get the fall colors|
|A picture just doesn't show how beautiful the colors were.|
|This is our camp site. With David and Adele enjoying the warm fire on a cool foggy morning.|
|Our sleeping arrangement for the week. It was great. A bed, a fan and a heater makes a great setup. Needless to say we had the 'lowlyest' of camping set ups. :)|
|Horses waiting at the hitching post while we look at a neat old cabin.|
|History of the cabin.|
|This neat old barn.|
|And their corn crib.|
|The horses waiting patiently. (Actually, I think they were praying for no more hills to climb.)|
|One of two eagles we say on the ride. We rode directly under this magnificent bird and he just stayed their watching us. It was one of the highlights of the whole ride!! He couldn't have been more then fifteen feet above us!|
|This is a small water fall between two ponds. There were three pond right in a row and they were spring feed. A very neat site!!|
|This is how the 'other' end of the riders slept! LOL!!!|
|A bad picture, but I these are like 5 x 5 'cages' that are filled with rocks. have never seen anything like it before so had to get a picture.|
|The most unusual horses we say on our trip!|
|These were infront of a bank in Mountain View, Missouri.|
|Just so cool!!!|
Hope you enjoyed the pictures. We had a wonderful time. But so glad to be home, take a shower with GOOD water pressure, sleep in my own bed and not have to put all my winter clothes on to just of potty! LOL
