A Ride In The Mountains

Last Thursday, Motor Man and I made our annual fall trip to the mountains of Virginia.

Although the foliage there (at the time) was really no more colorful than what we had at home, it was a glorious day for a trip. We left home pre-dawn, so we caught the sunrise along the way.

There are many scene overlook pull-offs on The Skyline Drive to stop for photos, so we took advantage of one.

Our destination was the Skyland Stables at Shenandoah National Park, so that I could go on a trail ride.  Meet Buckshot.

Buckshot was the perfect gentleman during my ride.

The trail took us through the woods, where we passed a tiny brook.

Buckshot had the softest coat.

I guess the cool temps kept folks from signing up for the rides; I was the only one at this time slot.  So it was one-on-one with my guide, Margaret.

Motor Man was watching for our return and took this video as we were headed back to the stables.

  1. Skyline Drive is beautiful all year round but the Fall leaves call to us don’t they! Glad you got a trail ride too………


  2. What a wonderful trip on a beautiful day. Good for y’all!

  3. We love Skyline Drive too – so pretty any time of year. Oh my gosh, how fun for you to go on a fall trail ride and Buckshot is a handsome fellow. Your post reminded me of my college days when I took a horseback riding class one fall. The trail rides were so fun and I have wonderful memories of them.

  4. One of the best places to enjoy the fall colors – even if they’re just starting to show – I can see it in a few spots in these pics, and I’m starting to notice it around here too … Glad you had a good ride with Buckshot !
