Trot over Crow Hill.. down Flamstead Road
Take a left onto Green Mountain Turnpike - which has been a horse and buggy route for centuries..
All the way to Pleasant Valley Road - and down to the bridge.
We crossed the bridge twice... once over and once on return -- Nimue liked it better the second time across.
We had to trot by the long freight train.. or rather the freight train traveled past us-- first time we've done that in the cart.
And what a co-incidence is this ?? The first time we rode over the bridge with Keri and Teasel for obstacle month the last day of March in 2008.. if you check out the farm blog post for that day - you'll see as we crossed the bridge.. there was a man with a camera that day too !! All the way from New Jersey that day -- these people are from Georgia !! :)
The actual crossing is on video --
Our return trip home - we took Whitney Road - which was different for us than our usual route. That spot of clearing in the distance is where Keri took her slide down on her rump when we trotted over Mount Ephraim awhile back.
Someone is doing spring cleaning - a handy obstacle all set out for us - a flapping clothesline of drapes or bedspreads.
We see a lot of these at this time of the year.
Time to get on the highway for our trot home. The trip does not take long with Nimue in harness... she loves to travel.
Nimue hesitates a bit at first.
On the return trip- covered bridges are old hat.
Nimue thinks going to the left is a faster way -- but really.. turn right it's quicker :)
we had an awesome time.. and per tradition.. I did upload the long version of the trip on Youtube.
Today is another spring day.. warmer than Wednesday - I am not sure where we are going to ride today.
