Well, actually it was a poker derby, but same idea and we got to see some wonderful country. This is only about 15 miles SW of where I live, in one of the Community Pastures. It was a couple weeks ago now.

Starting out, down the trail we go






Some cows, wondering if they are under attack...


There was even a wagon along


More riders


Some scenery, pretty green, and pretty wet for late September!!


More scenery, yes, that IS an outhouse :???:


Looking back..


Landmarks, these are just up the hill from an old homestead. They built them so that they knew where they were heading. The hills look pretty similar a lot of times!


The sandstones








A couple of riders on top


Interesting old rocks, there is even a cave in them






A view from the other side


More scenery

You are all welcome. And thanks for the compliments!! That is the only trail ride I got on this year. As for the photos, it is amazing how good the photos come out when you are on the back of a GOOD horse!!

I find the rock formations or rather erosion intrigueing and was thinking water years ago? Could it be? Loverly area(especially the space) and pics.
Spoon-think i would prefer Randi's trail,yours looks a bit hairy!

Spoon, that's not riding, that's driving :nod: I think I will stick to my horses tooo, that looks a bit too much for me ;-)

Alison, they are sandstone, so relatively easily eroded. A lot would certainly have been water, but since we don't get a lot of rain, it takes years.

Randi-was thinking more Gondwana days.Sandstone is formed when beaches, dunes,seabeds (sand) are covered over the years. :?:
