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.
