On this particular day, the partial tree that became ours was at the very top of the farm.
First there was some bickering over if, when we cut the tree, it would feel pain. Kestrel said
definitely yes and I agreed with her. This is why we thank the tree spirit for giving us the beautiful bounty of a Christmas tree.
This picture shows how easily my paint mare blends in with her woodsy environment. Bill will say that this is a reason for working in the ring and not the trail during hunting season.
Getty is always so heartbroken when I don't take her to the farm. This means she gets time in the woods too but separately so the horses don't scare her and she doesn't eat the chickens or dig up Jackie's gardens. This picture was taken at a cliff called Chapel Ledges just up the road from my house. If you are new to rockclimbing, Chapel Ledges is an excellent place to visit.
While there I became mildly obsessed with these icicles.
I just wanted to get one really cool photo.
All my pictures started to look the same!
And then I finally got the one I wanted!
I call this picture: Muppetdog Watches Waterfall.
Hope everyone is enjoying the trail in this fabulous holiday season!
