Which Way

I just returned from another wonderful trip to Chickasaw State Park near Henderson, Tenn., thanks to friends who are good enough to put up with me for five days.  Here are a few highlights.

Poplar grove on third day ride.

Cathy Hays and Frida Astor work on a Southwestern puzzle at the end of day two.  Wild times in Chickasaw! (right)

Mary Hurley and her Splash on day one.  Splash is a
Pintaloosa, a Pinto-Appaloosa cross. (below)

Mack and Cathy Hayes on Mia and Moonshine have been coming to Chickasaw for many years.  He was our trail guide. Here is a heated discussion as to whether we are on Turkey or
Turkey Extended Trail. (below, right)

"Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nancy on Leo-Pard and Frida Astor on Doc in the breathtaking pine thicket on day one. 

Switch-A-Roo.  Mary on Leo and Nancy on Splash at the end of day two.

Day four I stayed in camp by myself to catch up
on some reading and rest my aching bones.  If
you want a Diet Coke bad enough, you will
visit the worm refrigerator.

When there is confusion on the trail, you alway ask Yogi.  "When you come to a fork in the road, take it!"  —Yogi Berra


  1. Great blog, Nancy, and beautiful photos. You're a hero for riding with a bad back. You need tights, a cape and a tiara! Rainey
