Owyhee Harvest Moon - Day 2

Wednesday October 16 2013

I've done these loops many times - to Regina's place for a vet check, around Wild Horse Butte and along the Snake River and back to Regina's for a vet check, then back home. The scenery never gets old.

Batman and The Raven and I finished Day 2 of the Owyhee Harvest Moon endurance ride on these familiar trails.

Here are a few pictures from the day:

We had a whole lotta water here from a flash flood about 5 weeks ago. The water rearranged many trails and hills and washes. Here a good deal of water sat for a while until the ash-y mud dried and cracked.

Alan joined Steph and Amanda and me for part of the ride. The Snake River is always pretty at this spot!

Me, Amanda and Steph posing at our regular spot above the Snake River.

Batman is checking behind him, to see if there is anybody that needs saving.

Riding an old canal near the Snake River. The only thing Russian Thistle - aka tumbleweeds - is good for is the pretty reddish color it turns in the fall. Other than that - nada.

Batman likes a variety of food at vet checks. He tries food from every dish that is near him. He was even eyeing my hamburger!

Batman and The Raven finish another ride together!


  1. Whoopsie, seemed to have missed a few posts! Caught up for now.

    Have to admire your fortitude. We trail rode for 2 1/2 hours today and I'm tired. By the by, I was riding an Arabian, not one of my horses. All three of us were on Arabians--endurance horses. (Christine M.'s herd.)

    I'm not sure I could ever do a 25 miler, much less a 50...three days in a row. Wow!

  2. The Snake River photos are stunning.
