In which I share some photos and vids from the recent adventuring
|On the trail at Elbe Challenge|
Sky and I like to head into the high country for a week or so in August; however, this year the snow level stayed so low that the places we want to go are completely inaccessible. Some of the trailheads are under snow, which means no high mountain adventure for us this year.
Undaunted, we planned a different kind of trip: stay after an endurance ride and mess around on the local trails.
So that's what we did.

|Permanent trail markers!|
Still, Sky used her maps to keep us on course.
An important part of any Girls Adventure is food, and this adventure was no exception. We ate royally in camp...and also on the trail!
|Trailing (native) blackberries -- very sweet!|
|Black Gooseberries, which the guidebook says are "insipid in flavor"!|
|Devil's Club berries--don't eat these!|
|Thistle and thistledown|
Pretty, pretty, everywhere.
And when we got back to camp, Pickles Marie Tinydog was glad to see us.
Life is good!
