Hi! I just wanted to let you know I went on the 4 hour trail ride this morning and despite the gloomy weather, I had a great time! My guide was Lindsey and Val came along to learn the trail - I was the only customer on the ride so I had them all to myself. Both girls are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. I plan on bringing my family up there in the next few weeks (as our schedules allow) for the two hour ride - I can't wait to see the mountains that were shrouded by fog today...it must be magnificent."Cheryl, Illinois
