This year's August multi-day ride took place at Montana de Oro State Park, Morro Bay, CA. 21 riders ventured
onto the dunes, through the creeks, into the Pacific Ocean, through the groves of trees and between horse-head high greenery.
Some of the group camped in tents, others in LQ trailers, a few stayed with nearby relatives and tough-campers (like
myself) roughed it in a motel with an ocean view dominated by Morro Rock. A family of raccoons ventured into camp
and proceeded to have their way with various foodstuffs. The little devils even left marks where they had tried (correctly,
but unsuccessfully) to open an ice chest or two we had wedged under the horse trailers. I recommend visiting this lovely
venue, stalls are available for reservation on-line with the national park reservation system.
