Friday the 13th of November. I heard so many comments earlier today about unlucky days. People warning of big disaster. Didn't let this suspicious date detour my spur of the moment plans.
I finished with my calls before lunch and decided not to go to the office. Today was warming up very quickly. We decided to spend this afternoon on horseback in Weatherford, Texas.
Lake Mineral Wells State Park & Trailway here we come!
We visited a new set of trails. Not new to the community, but a state park we have not taken the horses to explore. Lake Mineral Wells State Trailway offers a wonderful riding trail spanning twenty miles long and ten feet wide. There are four trailheads with paved parking, trail information and maps. I especially appreciated the clean restrooms. Horses also had clean water to quench their thirst and plenty of green grass to investigate.
I'm surprised there weren't many more riders taking advantage of this sunshine and cool breeze. They must have been working..
I enjoyed the bright variety of leaves that surrounded the trail, the cute little squirrels running from us as well as the brightly colored birds swooping from side to side. A few times Beauty stopped and looked around to determine if she would cross one of those long wooden bridges. Once she started Hope followed.
Sights, sounds and visual effects of this new riding trail didn't bother our mares no more than the thought of today's date. Can't wait to visit another trailhead on this route.
