Dusty was gone all day Saturday running a 50k up and down Paris Mountain 4 times (and did it in 6:31 which is a great time given the elevation profile) and I had planned on attending a beautiful Hunter Pace in NC on Sunday. When Sunday morning rolled around I found that I had zero motivation. I had spent a lovely Friday afternoon and all day Saturday with my little man just enjoying spending the time with him and just didn't feel like losing the entire day on Sunday.
Instead of heading north to ride, I packed up the dogs, hubby and Wyatt and we headed south to hike in Sumter National Forest.
It was a gorgeous day and fall has finally arrived in brilliance here in SC. As we hiked along the horse trails, I felt pangs of guilt for not being on my mare, but then I would hear Wyatt laughing and I just didn't care anymore. It would have been a great day to ride the perfect trails, but it was also a great day to hike on perfect trails. The mare can wait another week.
These are crappy cell phone pictures. I need a new phone, but can't upgrade until summer. I swear phones have a pre determined life span that lasts barely over a year before they stop functioning. I have a Samsung Galaxy that I got just over a year ago and it barely functions. The pictures aren't so great and I dislike carrying both my phone and a camera. I either need to get used to having a camera again or need to get a new phone with a much higher quality camera in it. Not the iphone though. Or at least not the new one. I don't need to carry a laptop around posing as a phone. There is a new LG that claims an amazing camera which I may look into.
