We were fortunate enough to have spring weather on the first day of winter. So Laura and I with the dogs and horses took full advantage of it.
Teach and I went to Little Beaver on Friday and did a nice hike. It was 60 degrees and snow still on the ground. There were blasts of cold air mixed with hot air with the front moving in. Talk about a strange sensation! Was shocked there wasn't more people around, but we didn't see anyone.

Saturday Teach and I headed back to Little Beaver (it had actually been almost a month since we had been out there) and met Laura with her crew and horses for a trail ride. We were taking advantage for the nice weather.
Laura rode Ace and I had Dakota. These guys did great crossing bridges and walking over the rough rocky terrain. The Rocky Mountain Horse has proven to be a very brave, smart breed. Teach had a blast running around with his two pals, Xander and Rasky. Since we were on the horses we had teh dogs wearing their safety vests so people hiking (if we came across any) would know they weren't some random loose dogs. Of course our dogs don't really run off either. Unless there is a squirrel ... then the chase is on!
