Saturday - a truly stellar day - again, Murphy's Law struck! I had a commitment to attend a trail planning meeting in Darrington. The Forgotten Children's Fund fundraiser was held at Rhodes River Ranch on the same day. BCH held a pack clinic & a Draft Horse pulling contest was scheduled to end the day. We drove up & met Linda, who also wanted to attend the meeting. We had lunch, then Linda & I drove on to Darrington. Butch took in the Clinic & wrangled us a reservation for dinner - we had perfect seats for the Draft Pull!
Yesterday, I took Farah for her vaccinations. When I went up this morning - she greeted me with her head over the stall door, ready to go. Once we'd made the drive & I was in the saddle, I could tell she was a little under the weather. After her little run-away episode last week, it was sort of pleasant to have her so mellow today :-)

Having ridden to the top & beyond - I know first hand that there were some beautiful older stands of timber. Now, it looks as though there will be no trees at all...
