It Was The Best Time Ever

We had an absolutely fabulous time at Allenspark Lodge this weekend. GunDiva and her family are absolutely lovely people and so kind and gracious. Thank you all so much for letting Meg and I intrude on your weekend with Mrs (and Mr) Mom.

Since it didn't really dawn on me until after we left to ask MM if it was okay to post our trail riding photos...Ya'll know MM is a little camera shy...Here's a few photos of the beautiful fall scenery Meg and I got to drive through. The weather, took a rather sudden change the day before we left. The fall rains started. The temps have stayed reasonable though. Sure makes for some beautiful clouds...

Leaving DeBeque Canyon...

Entering the Glenwood Springs area...

Scenery photos courtesy of my silly kiddo. She'll do whatever it takes to 'get the shot'...



More to come after I get clearance from MM. If not, I think I can find a few more pics to show you all out of the 350 that were taken. Don'cha just love digital cameras?

Yep, we gotta have those pics!

Bet you had fun. *snork* maybe that is an understatement

MM has been great help to me figuring out what ails my oldster. Honestly, it looked like we might have to put her down, but MM advised me to listen to what the horse had to say. That and some more thoughtful trimming and the old girl is cantering and bucking - in her own way. Yay Mrs Mom!

Well, I can't thank Megan enough for taking my Jesse Mustang for a spin! She's a handful and does not tolerate wannabe riders well (except me, of course!). I was so glad to hear about all the fun that was had racing around with the other horses. Jess doesn't get to do that much and it did her a WORLD of good. I only wish Megan was closer, so they could go out to play more often.

This is a wonderful mother-daughter duo and we feel honored to have had them as guests in our home. You know where the Mustangs are, ladies, any time....and I want to see those pictures. Everyone was so bundled up, nobody is recognizable, anyway.

Oh. My. God. You two were a hoot! I had such a blast hanging out with you and was super sad you had to leave on Sunday. But now you know where to find us and we can always do it again.

Besides, you'll have to come visit that kid of yours when she's wrangling for Compass next summer.

I'll get my post up tomorrow or Thursday, I hope. Thanks for helping distract me this weekend, I sorely needed it.
