Those who have been with us for a while will remember we were over in Alliance in June to participate in a Trail Ride and Fundraiser for the STARS organisation. Well we had such a good time and as I said back then we think this is a group worthy of our support so we found another ride fairly close to home. Rumsey is about 80 miles away and we decided we would take the camper and stay the night before so that we were there first thing in the morning and there was no rush to get ready.
The ride was along the Red Deer River just upstream from Drumheller and into the badlands so it was quite picturesque. Not our usual haunts when it comes to riding there were cacti and probably the odd snake in the country but it was a great day, a little cloudy but not cool enough that you needed a jacket. They fed us a super breakfast and we were off to see the country.
Here is a shot of Brenda and Rosie on our lunch break and a shot below of the group winding their way through the valley.
The Red Deer River in the shot below is the same river that we ride along out west at the Yaha Tinda. It is also the river that runs through the Drumheller area which is home to the Tyrrell Museum.
