New Views!

Looking east at the Cascades
Yesterday, I drove up to Charlotte's - Darlene & I had been invited up for a ride!  We'd heard Charlotte say more than once;  "I'm just riding out behind my house."  A few of us are lucky enough to have a few miles of riding close enough to home that we don't have to trailer - but - Charlotte has Way more than that!  
Victoria to the left, Charlotte's trails on the right~
Since these old logging roads are landlocked by various landowners, they're not available for access to anyone but people who live in the area.  It was so amazing to see "new" country & get a feel for the lay-of-the-land further north.  Charlotte is still exploring & doing some research to see who owns what;  but suffice to say that this could be an incredible recreation area sometime in the future - if the sprawl of development doesn't happen.  We rode out just over 7 miles, then returned the same way.  The wind was fierce & again this week, we had just returned to the trailers by the time the rains hit!  Great Ride!


  1. OMG I am SO jealous!!! I would love to have access to trails from home.
    How is Farah doing? Have the scratches healed up completely yet?

  2. We were too! Farah is better, but not healed. Took her today for a laser treatment - the swelling dissipated as I watched. We didn't clean the medications off the leg, so the laser may not have been as effective - but we'll know in a few days. May take her for a follow-up treatment next Sunday.


Always Welcome~
