The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast, and you miss all you are traveling for. –Louis L’Amour
We hike the trails through the large tracts of forest about a mile from our house when we feel like a long Walkabout, but when we feel like a shorter hike we hit the trails right behind our house. These trails are on what’s known locally as Bunker Hill. Columbia County is horse country, and there are several horse breeders and horse boarding facilities just up the road from us. One of the quarter horse breeders organizes an annual trail ride every summer, and he has built an extensive network of well-maintained trails over the last few years. As we’ve explored the trails we’ve seen quite a few interesting landmarks along the way, and I’ve picked out a few of my favorites to show you.
