If you’ve never been the route takes you out through the quaint, scenic areas of Indian Valley on lightly traveled roads, that pass through farm and ranch lands, with horses, goats, and cattle. This May looks to be absolutely Beautiful, as always, and the weather looks Nice too. You have the choice of how far you go, so if you’re not up to the climb up and around Antelope Lake, you can stop at the Genesee Store and enjoy a Fabulous lunch prepared by Mr. Robert Meacher, that owns the Genesee Store and Loves to cook Great culinary dishes for his customers. You won’t be disappointed with the food, it’s always top notch! The run up and around Antelope Lake is so scenic and Beautiful that you almost have to ride the full way, just to see the Stunning scenery. Last year was a wet ride but still pretty, and as I came around the valley upon a long curve, and there were 2 horses standing under the apple trees just covered in wet apple blossoms. The image will always be imprinted in my mind as the specific Beauty associated with this place we call Indian Valley! The rides are affordable and we see many families coming to ride together. There are water stops along the way with treats, so you can rest and recharge some. Bring your camera and plan to have a Blast! You will take a ton of pictures and thouroughly enjoy yourself.
