I like to take the scenic route, which is the trail behind my house, down the forest service road, down the blacktop a short way, down the gravel road two miles to her gate, River Oaks Ranch.
So here goes "The Process". One needs plenty of hydration during a hot ride. Sometimes we have a little dehydration before the rehydration.
This Mule is a BEAST! It will take me anywhere I need to go.
Drive past my house.
Pass the old barn/cabin.
Cross the creek over the old wooden bridge.
Onto the trail. My trail signs are named after horses we've owned and loved. A good friend's daughter made them for me.
Pass the Wagon Trail. An old wagon trail runs through my property.
Down the Forest Service Road. No problem. I can get around that log.
Now a short trip down the blacktop road.
Turn at the gravel road, Lower Narrows, to River Oaks Ranch.
Fetch Dolly. Yes, she's looking good. See those Amber eyes?
Finally, I'm on the horse.
Hooked up with riding buddies and we rode back to my house, via Ozark Trail.
Now, it's nap time.
