We had an absolutely wonderful ride last night, just me and my sister and our Khota Tonka and Lakhota.  We rode along a forest road for a while and did some exploring among the trees.  When we were about to be done riding we found the most fantastic little trail through the fairy meadows and up into the cedar forest.  We had to turn back because it was getting dark (and unbeknownst to us there was a Profound Moment waiting in the woods) but I can't wait to get back there and explore some more.

Fiery eye in the forest
 When we stopped here everything felt miraculous.  It was a moment to just "be" in and soak up.  Even Tonka seemed to be listening to a profound message I couldn't hear.
Some cathedrals have no stones

Profound Listening

"I will follow you into the dark"
Into the breach

What a beautiful ending.  :)

I always call those kind of trails Magical. There is one we found at Clearwater Crossing in MT and I that is what I named it in my head.You can just hear the voice of God (if thats what you believe) it is so quiet. Love it.

Great pics! You are so lucky to have such lovely riding country in reach, and to have a horse you love to ride so much.

Beautiful pictures. It looks like the perfect place to ride on hot days. How is your move to Spokane coming along??

What a beautiful place to ride!

Just curious, why do you attach the curb strap to the ring by the mouthpiece rather than up at the ring where the headstall is attached?

Lea - It was definitely Magical and definitely a "God moment." My sister wrote about it from a more Christian standpoint (and with her cancer trials in mind) on her group on Facebook called "Of God and Horses."

Keechy - Indeed I am! So very lucky.

Linda - Still no buyer here but we're making an offer on the house between Cheney and Medical Lake. Contingent on the sale of this one, of course.

Kristi - I don't have a good answer other than it seemed like the obvious place for it. Now I'm curious what would happen if I moved it.
