Fall 2022

What a joy to come up here after a successful summer season. Gratitude to our guests and Ray and Angela at Wind & Waves who help us keep the wheels greased and the bills paid!

Excited for spring 2023! I <3 Hornby!

Yer Mom Extreme Bike Trail

So that’s what those double diamonds  on the trail map mean! I had never seen this before today. In the midst of a mildly grueling (my choice, there are miles of mellower bike/hike trails as well) I discovered the Yer Mom trail today. Shout out to the parks people who maintain these awesome trails!

A deer in the roses! Deer pass through the yard daily.
