How I Rode my Mules up the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail

Hey, I drew you a map of my first five days riding my mules Brick and Cracker up the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail.

A very rough map I sketched of my first five days riding the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail with my mules Brick and Cracker.

I sketched the map into Katie’s notebook. Her parents, RJ and Christina, invited me for supper while I was camped at Fox Creek Horse Camp. Here are some photos of our time together.

Granny: she said, “I was born in Nebo. Have you ever heard of Nebo?” I said I thought I’d heard of it. It sounds like the kind of place everyone should have heard of.
Katie checking out my map. I saw her writing a story in her journal about me and decided I’d draw a map of how I got from Elk Creek Garden to Fox Creek, where we met.
The grand send-off. Thanks for the bag of spaghetti, guys! I stowed it in my canvas water bucket (barely visible hanging at 9 o’clock of Cracker’s pack saddle.
