Well, I did a little camping this past weekend at Nile Creek, one of my favorite places to camp. It was such perfect weather and the nights seemed cool but mild. It was beautiful! I had a wonderful time!

I took my little mare who I just started under saddle last year and don't have many rides on her and she did perfect. There's lots of streams to cross, elevation to climb, cool shady

trails and beautiful trees! She did so well, and most the time I rode her with just a halter and a bareback pad.

It only takes about an hour and 45 minutes to get there and since I didn't have a lot of time to be away, it was perfect.

I didn't take a lot of pics because I was trying to just leave being tied to my phone or any digital device for the weekend, but I snapped a few at the campsite.

Oh and the salad you see me holding on my lap, is what I made us one day for lunch! I copied the Wendy's Toasted Almond Strawberry Salad. It turned out great. I put Blueberries, Cranberries, Strawberries, flaked Parmesan, toasted almonds and  Grilled Chicken on Spinach and lettuce with a Huckleberry vinaigrette. it was yummy and HEALTHY!

However the next day I let myself eat a bunch of junk food and actually got sick to my stomach and barfed! (I probably shouldn't tell you that..but, It was actually quite hilarious! And a good reminder of why I can't eat bad stuff! LOL! )
