This was the view as we rode at the base of the dam, looking back up the Black River with Mt. Ascutney in the distance. Just breathtaking.
Yesterday I went out with some friends on a wonderful trail ride around the North Springfield dam area. The sky was abrilliant blue with a few wispy clouds. The greens were like emeralds. Wild phlox decorated our path. The horses were perfect; even boldly crossing the river without hesitation! This is exactly why I’m here in Vermont. For a few months each year we get bliss, and we horse people take it upon ourselves to make the most of every moment of it!
