More Oroville Trails

The campsites at Oroville are some of the nicest we visit. Corrals for the horses and even hot showers for the humans. That's a bedroll next to the horse, it was so hot we slept out on the ground. I love the sound of horses munching hay during the night.


Everyone gathered at our campsite Saturday evening for a pot luck dinner.

Dusty trails through the woods.

The only green grass was in the shady wooded areas.

Only three of us stayed through Monday. We trailered past the reservoir to the Feather River trails. The river and shade provided some welcome relief from the heat.



A very long unused railroad tunnel gave the horses something new to experience.


There were a few places we could ride into the river to cool off and let the horses drink. Koko loves to play and splash whenever she gets in water.





It was a nice weekend, even with the heat.

But I am glad to be home, there's no place like home.

IT ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE FUN. WHEN YOU GET ALL THAT HEAT, JUST REMEMBER THAT RIDE YOU HAD DURING A DOWN POUR. NOT SO BAD IS IT? I'LL BE THERE ONE OF THESE DAYS. I MISS ALL THE RIDES WHEN YOU WERE HERE.
