and let there be trail!

A quick jaunt out to the lake today to check conditions. I thought it looked lower the other day, but didn't get a chance to check it out (I was with a friend whose horse recently panicked and ended up swimming in the lake and getting stuck in branches. Needless to say she is staying out if the water for awhile.)

And we were able to stand on the canal trail! The water has receded about 15 horizontal feet in that location, probably down 4 feet total. In both directions it is impassable, but there is hope.

Major wasn't in a mood to stand in the lake today, he wanted to go! Well, we did, on my evil terms. He thought we were heading for home, but my nefarious plan made him walk down hills, canter back up, and repeat when he tried to dodge onto a side trail. We did have some great canters out there today, the weather was perfect, and even warm enough for a bath back home.

Just when we're really tired of the trails, and the rain starts, the sandy canal trail should be available, yay! We're all ready for a change of scenery.
