I have to tell you though now that...I am not a PCT Virgin. Yes.... this is a hard thing for me to say!!! I was... fortunate enough to ride a segment of the" PCT last year till a "BIGFUCKINGTREE" (25 cents in the cuss jar!) stopped us after 2 1/2 hours into the trail. Well it made for a GREAT 5 hour round trip ride...however I do not have any digital pictures from that ride. After that ride, I went on to Amazon and ordered several books to read up on it! I am not going to bore you NOW with it's history, I am just going to take you for a ride on the PCT!
Although Jesse is not quite awake...The Desert Rose has been up since 5am to ride the PCT!!!!
This is what we see in the distance!
Getting closer to the rocks!
We have been gradually climbing on this nice wide sandy trail for about 45 minutes now and are getting to the rock formations!
Here is our first obstacle...Jesse asked me how I expected him to squeeze his big quarter horse butt in between that big rock on the right and the log to the left. I told him if he could not go by it he will have to go over it!!!
Jesse and I are in the lead so I turn and get a shot of the Bossman and Little Lady!
We are headed down to the group of Oak tress down below, about a mile ride.
Jesse's bridle is hanging on the sign!
Little Lady and Jesse rest in the shade!
The Bossman sets the "log table"!
Finally, our humans have finished their BLT lunch...and wine and now we have had our lunch and get our 2nd drink of water before we head out on the trail again! Watch how we share our water photo opp???
Jesse says, Wow...were we good or what??? See ,we have known each other since Little lady was 6 months old...I feel like her older...handsome brother!!!
Little Lady... look what you did to my mom's chinks!!! The rule of the trail is do not spill mom's drink...or slobber on her chinks!
We are now back at the PCT head ... only we know a little secret..if we go through this gate we will come to a fire road and can ride a loop!!! ( our humans do not like to go back the same way we came!!!)As we head up the trail it is soon apparent that this trial is not as well maintained as the PCT! But other than a bit of snow and a few ticks... we manage to make it to the fire road in no time!
Jesse's and Mom's last photo opp of the PCT, 1ST SEGMENT!
