  1. Phil,

    You know I like your pictures! I used to ride Carriage Hill as a Metropark Mounted Patrol until this summer. I have been up there for this event in the past. Fun to watch the big guys !

  2. I live about 2 miles from here and didn’t know about this event. I have been to the park several times at other events.
