Saturday’s marathon obstacles from above …

first: a view of the contraption that got us all the way up there

.

obstacle #1 – Kentucky Horses …

.

… and a view all the way to the horizon

.

obstacle #2 – Head of the Lake …

.

and a close-up of the bridge and the island

.

obstacle #3 – Spook Hollow … this one is difficult to photograph from above because half of it is hidden by trees …

.

and a close-up of one of the Jack-o-Lanterns on the posts in this obstacle (he has hair!)

.

obstacle #4 – Walnut Hill

.

obstacle #5 – The Stone Garden …

.

and a close-up of the wall

.

obstacle #6 – Squirrel Grove …

.

and a close-up of one of two squirrels at the entrance to the obstacle (you can’t see them in the previous photo) … it’s holding flowers in its paws

.

obstacle #7 – The Wagon Yard …

.

and a close-up of some of the Western-themed decorations

.

obstacle #8 – The Spring …

.

and me! … well, my shadow, at any rate

.

and, finally, while we were up there: a view of the Main Stadium with people arriving for this evening’s Jumping competition
