Horse Ridge Trail Shooting

 Friday afternoon, myself and fellow fulltimer Ed took a ride out to one of my favorite areas in the Lincoln National Forest for a little shooting and off roading. It was a beautiful day to be outdoors especially since the weather is turning cooler on Saturday.

 We only ran a few rounds through our pistols, as Ed mainly want to check the alignment on his laser sight. I shot a few few just to keep up the ole double tapping skills.

 After the shooting was done, we started up Horse Ridge Trail. The trail climbs approx 1500 feet in a mile or so. There are some pretty steep parts, but the main obstacle is the loose rocky trail combined with the steep grades.

 Once at the top, the views of the White Sands National Monument and the Tularosa Basin are just amazing.

 We also found a Geocache I had never seen before, I was surprised, considering the number of times I've been up here. Guess I never walked over to that particular spot.

We stayed at the top for a while just enjoying and taking in all the views. Great thing about 4 wheel drive vehicles, is the ability to go places and see things the average person never gets a chance too. After an hour at the top it was time to start the slow decent back down and towards home. It was a good day out and I enjoy showing folks some of my favorite places. You can see more pictures on the photo page Here

The past week, has been busy with medical appointments, housekeeping and just living life here at the park. Nothing exciting to bore you with, unless of course you call laundry, dishes and walking Scrappy

Ok, until the next go round......keep Lovin Your Life as we do ours!!!
