Joe Graham Horse Camp Sept 10-13, 2015. Pics!

03 November 2015 - 06:51 PM

I wanted to share some pic's from my last camping trip last month. We stayed at Joe Graham near Timothy Lake and the PCT south of Mt Hood in NW Oregon. This was our second time staying at this camp. It has really nice corrals, camp sites, water and bathrooms. Over the 4 days we were there, we rode about 39 to 40 miles. We rode another section of the PCT south into the Warmsprings reservation, several camp loops and the PCT north around one side of Timothy Lake and ventured over to see Little Crater lake. Little crater is about 45 ft deep and is a constant 34 deg year round. The weather was fantastic the whole time, and the horse did great! My horse even jumped a log like a deer on one trail. Going around the lake the trail is multi user and we came across a few hikers that had never seen a horse before. One young guy shouted out that my horse was cool and stylish with his argyle leg warmers. I had a few others ask us if our horses legs got cold so that is why we had to put socks on them. lol. Most people were super nice, except for one biker that was a bit rude. I had someone ask where i got my funny hat. I guess they had never seen a ridding helmet before. All in all it was an awsome trip. Cant wait to go camping again. Now onto the pics! 

This was near camp....

Trail Ride, Twin Lakes, Mt Hood With Pics

17 August 2015 - 12:20 AM

I went on a trail ride last weekend up in the Twin Lakes area on Mt Hood last weekend and wanted to share a few pic's. We have been so dry here that both lakes are way lower than normal. The upper lake is so low that you can walk almost all the way across. We did a total of about 8.5 miles. Both horses did great and we had a lot of fun. I had a few hikers tell me they liked my horses "argyle socks". lol. One guy even yelled out "cool leg warmers horsey!" as they hiked by. Lol. 


Lower Twin Lake



Lower Twin Lake, you can barely see the tip of Mt Hood over the tree tops.



Upper Twin Lake. the water usually comes almost up to the tree line.

My Horse Turned 21 Today! Added A Few Pics Of Course.

04 May 2015 - 12:25 AM

My paint horse Keno turned 21 today! I have had him for over 14 years. We competed in our first show together, learned to jump, cut cows, camping together and have done miles and miles of trails. Trial ridding is both of our favorite activities. He is my best friend and we have had lots of adventures and been through a lot together. Looking forward to many more adventures and trails to explore. 





Baby Keno! 


Hike From Saturday With Pics!

22 April 2015 - 01:23 AM

Hello! Haven't been on in a while, been super busy lately. Saturday we had great weather so I went hiking with a friend. We hiked a section of the Eagle Creek Trail in the Columbia River gorge. It is one of my favorite trails to hike. We hiked a total of about 13 miles. See below for a few pics. Will try to upload a short video as well later. Here is a link to a hiking website with some good pics and more info. http://nwhiker.com/CGNSAHike37.html
