2-12-11 Trail ride out Salome Way...

 
 A few friends trailerd out to Salome to ride yesterday. Lori, Brenda and Mary. It was Mary's first time riding in this area. Lori comes out to ride often and  Brenda has followed her out a few times before.
   
Took some trails we hadn't been on before. We did a short ride on mostly flat terrain because Mocha is out of shape (haven't ridden him since 11/20). Traveled about8 to 9 miles in a little over 3 hours. A nice laid back ride, enjoyed the scenery and the warm Arizona winter sunshine (70+degrees) a huge change from what it was a week ago! ....

Rode up a wash and looked at cool rocks and rock formations..






Somebodys campsite.. A couple horses weren't too sure if that fire pit was something they could trust..

No pictures of me and Mocha this time

    I need to take mocha out riding more, even if I have to ride alone and stay close to home. Mocha is getting chubby and breaks into a sweat within the first few miles and it was barely 70 degrees when we started out.
