Deer Saddle

After the worst-weather day of the year (40 degrees, wet, and windy), the sun is shining again, and we had to get out. We decided on Deer Saddle, still one of my favorite hikes: it does not require any driving, and takes less than an hour to reach.

From this vantage point it is hard to believe what's on the other side of that hill, and it is spectacular.

We drank some water and had a bite of homemade energy bar before we headed back down. There were stalls to clean, and I want to give Buggsy a good grooming this afternoon. He is shedding winter hair, and besides, I want to give him some loving. Too soon to ride yet, but I am healing well.

Gorgeous country - always happy to see where you're hiking care of the wrist a bit longer.
