The summer heat is beginning to abate, so it was time for a short ride out at the old favorite Live Oak Camp. A light breeze was blowing and the sky was filled with wispy cirrus clouds, known as "Mare's tails" and quite appropriate for 3 horses and a mule to take a walk.
In 2 hours we traveled 4.35 miles, choosing a trail to go see the relatively flat area that borders the Rancho San Fernando Rey.
First step, pass through the equestrian gate, funded by a generous local benefactor.
No dogs, no bicycles, no motorized vehicles..... heavenly.
Tracking along the border fence line.
A hobbit home hole in the base of a mighty oak tree with beautiful bark.
He was glad to have some company, and greeted all of our animals across the fence with pleasure.
Another happy trail explored on the back of a fine Kentucky mule.
"I could never resist the call of the trail."
