Gazing into the greenery that once was Lake Cachuma.
On a typically bright and sunny day, 6 horses and 1 mule and their owner members of the Los Padres Trail Riders and the Horse & Mule Meetup of the 805 set out to take a leisurely stroll from Live Oak Camp out to a Cachuma Lake overlook.
We went 5.36 miles in 2 hours, and a nice time was had by all.
The roads have been greatly widened, presumably for the fire department vehicles this winter. It changes the experience when what used to be trails have become jeep tracks, and jeep-wide tracks now can accommodate fire engines.
And Photoshop allows me to be in both places at once.
And then we headed back.
So no drama today, just a nice walk in nature.
We stand somewhere between the mountain and the ant.
