This morning we loaded up in the trailer once again for the short trip to the Mount Ascutney State Park.  This time we were joined by my friend Kim Wilkinson and her horse Joe.  Kim and Joe are also hoping to make it to the summit of Mount Washington on Sunday.

It was a muggy morning but a nice breeze picked up as we climbed up the mountain road.  Apollo seems to think climbing mountains is par for the course these days!  I'm feeling really good about his fitness!

You can see how hazy it is in the picture to the right, this is the same location I took the second picture from on our last trip up Ascutney.

Apollo has done the majority of his conditioning alone.  As herd creatures this seriously goes against their nature.  He has been a good sport about all the solo missions but he seemed to think it was nice to have a buddy on this morning's ride.
