First Aid Kit Supplies?

18 February 2015 - 01:02 AM

I'm cleaning out and restocking my first aid kits for the barn and trailer. What are your must haves and things to stay away from? What all do you keep in yours? Also what items are a must have in your saddle bags? I have finally found a trail map that is sturdy enough I haven't ruined it yet.

Snowshoe Pics.

06 January 2015 - 03:23 AM

Hello! Hope everyone is having a great new year so far. On new years day, my friends and i went snowshoeing on the mountain, than drove up to Timberline Lodge for lunch and hot cocoa by the fire. Timberline is a historic lodge that was built in the late 1930's on the south side of Mt Hood, and was dedicated by the then president Franklin D Rosevelt. We snowshoed at Trillium Lake on the south side of Mt Hood. It was a clear day and although cold, was a perfect day for it. We did a little over 4 miles. Well onto the pic's, enjoy! 

This is a very frozen Trillium Lake, looking towards the south side of Mt Hood. Right about in the middle of the mountain and just above the tree line you can see the lodge and a few ski runs. 







Looking south from the lodge. This is Mt jeffersen, and you can just barely see the Three Sisters mountains sticking up to the left.


Lets See Those Christmas Trees!

Finally got my tree up and decorated, been super busy so its taken a bit to get it done. I usually go with a noble but got a douglas fir this year. Haven't had one of them in a long time. Growing up my grandpa had a Christmas tree farm next door and I grew up helping him with it. Have always loved the smell of a fresh tree in the house.

Here is mine! 


Joe Graham Horse Camp Sept 3 - 6, 2014. Pics!

18 September 2014 - 09:44 PM

My friend and I camped with our horses a couple weeks ago at Joe Graham. The campground is very nice with large campsites, nice sizable corrals for each horse, bathrooms and water. This was the first time I had been to this campground. We rode a total of 37.5 miles over the 4 days we were there. The trails were all really nice as well. We rode a section of the PCT and explored several other trails as well. We rode all the way around Timothy Lake on one day and got to check out Little Crater Lake. Little Crater lake was so cool! It was crystal clear, teal blue and you could see all the way to the bottom. We met quite a few hikers and bikers on the trails that were really nice, some had never seen a horse before. One guy thought my horses splint boots were argyle socks. We had a lot of fun and the horses were awsome! We plan on going back there again next summer to camp. Now onto the pics! Enjoy!

Hike On Mt Hood, Mcneil Point.

02 August 2014 - 01:42 AM

On Saturday July 26, my friend and I hiked up to an area on the north side of Mt Hood called McNeil Point. The weather turned out perfect for our hike and wasn't to hot until we were almost back. We hiked up to around the 6,500 ft level on the mountain and had a great view of the valley and the mountain were we sat for lunch. No pic from the very top as my camera battery died before i got up there. Here are a few pics from what i did get. 

This is a view of Mt Hood from the Top Spur trail when you first come out onto an open ridge. 


Looking across to the other ridge, the river below is the Little Muddy river, it splits onto two here. 


High elevation lake.


Looking down on the same lake. You can see an old burn area from a bad fire a few years ago.


Looking north into Washington state. The two mountains are Mt Rainier and Mt Adams.
