First ride at Silver Falls

Great Saturday ride at Silver Falls. We stuck to the armored trails and roads, so we probably did about 5 miles all told. Nevertheless, I had a very sweaty horse at the end of that. He hasn't had a real workout since October and it shows.

Silver Falls is like a living fairy tale to someone who grew up in flat, dry, treeless country.

I do not exaggerate.

Nice, easy trail.

One of the (very few) areas of boot-sucking swamp.

Most of what we rode was more like this—carefully constructed, well-drained forest trail.

After the ride. Blue is somewhat unimpressed.

All four boots stayed on throughout.
