We had a very nice ride.  8 riders showed up and the weather was wonderful.  In the woods and valleys of Fort Braden it was quite pleasant, and the parts of the trail along the lake had a very nice breeze.  All the horses were well behaved and managed well with the downed limbs and recently fallen leaves.  The trail has been changed up recently and we had a bit of confusion with the markers, ribbons and paint, but we found our way for a 7 1/2 mile ride — Connie
