There were four of us; Jerry and I, Sharon and Gene. Sharon brought her two horses and we worked on training her younger horse to 'pack', she did well. Gene rode Jerry's horse Remington, Jerry rode the mule, and I was on Rock. Saturday it was dark and cloudy. The rain held off until we had all the horses tacked up and packs in place on BJ. We donned our slickers and waited for the downpour to slow. It rained..... all.....day.....long....
It was so dark and cloudy, my flash was needed for pictures in the afternoon. The horses eyes look spooky with the flash. We sure like that little mule, he is quite the personality, very sweet and was 'talking' to us a bit this trip.
Jerry and I kept dry at night in the living quaters of the horse trailer. Sharon slept in Jerry's cozy cook tent. Gene set up his bedroll in his SUV. We took advantage of the campground's hot showers after riding all day in the cold rain. Jerry provided us with great breakfasts and Sharon whipped up super suppers. I kept the dishes washed. We all had a good time but all was wet. We decided to head for home Sunday as the rains were just not letting up.
Jerry and I celebrated our two month wedding anniversary Friday. Just two short months ago we were camping and decided to visit the Chapel of the Bells in Tahoe. Married life is good!
