Thunderstorm Time

Today I rode in a thunderstorm with the horse camp girls.  It didn't start as a thunderstorm - in fact it started out really nice - but it ended as a massive rainstorm complete with thunder and sheet lightening.  Quincy didn't seem to mind the rain and he was a character during lunch eating chocolate frosting and cheese crackers (and he would have eaten my hat if I let him).

Way up there!

After lunch, some of the horse camp girls wanted to turn back and the rest wanted to keep riding. I took the girls that wanted to keep trekking on (Robin, Olivia, Bethany, and Calli) up a "hill."  Ok... maybe it was more of a cliff/mountain than a hill.  It was beautiful at the top and I think everyone had tons of fun! I love exploring new country and seeing just how far I can go.

Cornucopia Peak
After making it to the top we noticed some ominous clouds rolling in and we began to hear far off thunder. So after a quick group photo we headed back down the mountain. (Complete with some fast paced loping and trotting.)

The storm approaching... 
Even though we ended up soaking wet, it was a great ride!
