A gorgeous setting for the 14th annual Mt Adams Endurance ride - 100, 75, 50, and 25 miles, 25 and 12 mile Ride N Tie, and a Trail Ride - outside of Trout Lake, Washington, near the foot of 12,281' Mt Adams.
A good scratching while waiting in the vet line.
He thought about bucking at the start of the 25 mile ride!
A group starting on the 25 miler.
One of the CUTEST KIDS EVER. Garret's 5 years old, and did his first endurance ride with his mom on the 25 miler. Biggest smile plastered on his face all day!
Sherry from Canada.
The Ride N Tie'rs start out on the trail.
Heading out on a loop.
One of the other CUTEST KIDS EVER, and one of the CUTEST PONIES EVER. Clara and Benjamin are doing their first 75 miler!
Cooling Benjamin down at a vet check.
Tanking up before going out on the next loop.
Dennis Summers trotting out 19-year-old Rosie. They ended up winning the 100.
This horse was catching everybody's eye: half Friesian, 1/4 Arabian, 1/4 Quarter horse. He and Nicole finished the 100.

Nothing better then a good roll at the end of the day!
