Horse camp through Cashmere to Chelan

We woke at the crack on dawn and after some oatmeal we hit the trail which started out with a nice rutted dirt road through the trees and climbed up in along some airy ridge lines and eventually to some great views at Devils Gultch Overlook.

Not too many pictures because the riding was fun and fast, and we dropped into Cashmere for a quick lunch and some dinner stuff and back on the trail.

The day had taken us from thick forests and desert and back again with incredible views at each turn.

Another cool ridge ride.

Cool power line picture

We took a break in a shady spot for a bit and Tony decided that his knee pads were too hot so he dropped his pants and stuck a couple of big pine cones between the pads and his knees to get some airflow. I rested while he spent the next fifteen minutes trying to get the sharp pine cone chunks out of his boots.

We got rolling again past a lot of this.

Along trails that curled through the trees like long caves.

Until we came to this spot.

Where we had the best french fries on the planet. Really nice people run this place so stop by and spend some money there.

We rolled along through even more great easy riding

We started the descent to Lake Chelan where we hoped to nab a campsite and a swim.

We got both.
