New parts of the river bottoms discovered


The grandson kept telling me about this fun place on the river bottoms where he goes with his friends to tear up his pickup play in the sand on Saturday nights. I decided to branch out, on my Missouri River bottom rides, and see what he's been talking about.

Almost there, I needed a pit stop. Blue patiently waited.

"Are we in the desert?"

"Looks like it to me, Blue. But how did those tire tracks get here?"

Lots of tire tracks.



Oh yeah.

I must say, this is the closest to the Missouri River I've been on horseback since before the spring floods.

Must be the season for wild sunflowers.

Almost home, I noticed the soybeans are changing from solid green to yellow.

Isn't riding just the best! My quarter horse spooked 2 weeks ago and I have not been able to sit in the saddle yet. Hopefully tomorrow. Where in Missouri are you located? I am in western Kentucky.

Can I have some of that sand for my beach at the lake which consists of mostly little rocks! That would be so nice not to have to wear water shoes in the lake so that I don't tear my tender feet all up. Amazing though, it doesn't bother my grand kids at all. Hummmmmm I must be getting old!

the soybeans are changing here too (maybe farther along than yours?) I love the shadow photo, Donna. Neat.

I love the view! What a great way to spend the day! We went on a girls trail ride on Saturday and had a blast. Open fields, water (which by the way was my daughter's fav!) and fellowship!
