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

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.

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

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.
