Echo Ridge is a pretty small park, enough trails for a day ride, for a serious workout you might ride it twice.
And a quiz for you all... what kind of horse are these ? I've not seen anything like them before.
In the extreme heat a dip in the lake was in order. The water was much more "refreshing" than I remembered. Turns out that in town the water is a good 15'F warmer than westward toward Stehekin. Which in hindsight makes a lot of sense being that end is glacier fed...
The heat ploughed on into the night, and at midnight the storm we'd been tracking on the radar finally arrived. One day I'll figure out how to get decent lightning shots, this is the best I could do after taking a hundred shots in different modes. It was quite a show.
