There were many fun activities at the Cataloochee Guest Ranch including mountian hikes, wildflower walks, bird watching, croquet, badminton, horseshoes, marshmallow roasts, wagon rides, fishing, and more. The favorite activity for AJ and KJ was horseback riding. The scenery was spectacular from the trails into the higher elevation of the mountain. Our gang chose to ride in the mornings. Children are required to wear helmets. GJ was very impressed with the safety precautions taken by the wranglers on the trail.
AJ's horse in the last photo above is having a snack of acorns before hitting the trail for the 2 hour ride.
