|Such a sweet horse!|
On Sunday we all went to ride horses at the farm by the river. It's a pretty little spot about ten to fifteen minutes from the hostel we're staying at. While they readied the horses we busied ourselves by petting two draft ponies, Ruben and Rusty, after Ruben was led out for Sharil to ride. We were all told what horses we would ride; I rode a Oreo ice cream-colored horse named Mister, Cindi was given Ringo, Nicole got Cassie, and Aura got a large retired lumber horse named Billy. We all had fun, though unfortunately cutting the ride short due to sudden rain. Afterward we took a nap. Then once the rain let up we rode a train for about five miles.

Yesterday we started to work in the rain restoring waterbars at Black Cap (in the Green Hills Preserve) to help run water off a trail. While we worked it started to pour and we heard thunder and saw some lighting so we took off and headed to the Discovery Center to learn about weather mostly up on Mount Washington. Once again the rain let up and we returned to the mountain and we worked, ate blueberries, and we climbed to the top while it was very foggy.
