No horsies today, all lost and gone away

The horses were all booked out,  so we postponed and went for another punishing walk..


as high as we could bear, which was not very much higher in the scheme of things, to a little reservoir lake.


Then we had a picnic with crostini and olive tapanade and pan fried local steak cut into paper thin slices washed down with local beer.  (I am so glad we rented a room with a kitchen.)

Today the horses are booked, the ride to the ranch is arranged  and the camera is all charged up.


Not this ride though. The big black dog is not giving up his seat for anyone.

Good morning. Have a lovely day.

your friend, celi

  1. Love the image of the feet and ripples of water.

  2. Your simple meal sounds perfect. The images of the scenery are postcard-worthy – just stunning. What a gorgeous setting xx

  3. you sure are in a beautiful place! have you heard how things are going at the farmy in your absence?

    • everyone seems fine, the worst the dogs have done is tear up a paper towel and the pigs are eating everything green that they are offered, i am dying to let them out on the grass when I get home! Two more days and I will be back at the helm! I am ready to get back to work too!! c

  4. Perfect clouds. Reflections in the lake, too. So pretty. Horses, eh? You’ll discover muscles you never knew existed. 🙂

  5. Today’s blog struck a chord in me. Pure joy, Celi. Have a lovely day too!

  6. What a marvellous adventure you’re having. Isn’t it ironic somehow that you come closer to me and I move to the other side of the world. Of course you are only in the “near west” lol, but the Rockies are so spectacular, aren’t they? Makes me all homesick. Quick…got to find me a castle or quaint church to visit. Oh well, the one good thing is pretty soon, when I get out of this bubbly-headed jet lag, I’ll be one of the first to read your farmy updates! Keep taking photos of those fantastic mountains, I bet when you get home you’ll be glad you did. 🙂

    • The rockies are glorious, though I have an affinity for quaint little churches and Canmore the town is all so NEW and shiny. c

    • It was waiting that shot, could not be missed. I call this kind of photo a chocolate box shot! c

  7. Stunning opening photo, Celi. Living where we do, seeing anything taller than a mole hill is a wonderful thing. Seeing legit mountains is something beyond awesome. Glad you’re having such a great time. 🙂

  8. Thanks for satisfying my need to see the mountains again. Can you ‘post’ the smell of the mountain air?
    Have fun!

  9. The mountain-lake image is stunning – a wonderful scenic shot for a momento of your trip. The clear water ripples just invite barefeet but I’m guessing the water would be chilly.

  10. Hmm! You are teasing us!! What’s this with all the ‘feet’ photos? Bet they are yours 😉 ! Seriously beautiful picture of the lake tho’ – reminds me of the mirror images one could get in the Norwegian fjordland. . . Wish you could have had a few more days of sleeping in and doing very little . . . hope there is a next time in the foreseeable future 🙂 !

  11. Oh, I love these photos. And it’s great having a kitchen so that you don’t have to go out to eat at every meal and can take advantage of local favorites “prepared to order.”

    • welcome welcome, I love it when new readers show themselves so i can pop over and learn all about you too.. I am so glad you found me .. celi

  12. Everything looks so crisp and clean up there. If I were that dog, I wouldn’t give up that seat, either.
