and head out to the canyons.
Three rigs and a car
My trailer and Lisa's old truck
Victoria's new 3 horse and Don's truck
Yeah, we are organized.
The teenagers had their own vehicle, but we hauled their horses.
We knew they wanted to snapchat or whatever.
We arrived, tacked up and got going.
Lisa, Pam, Jeanna, Beth, Alfredo, Victoria, Rachel and Aversa
Don and I are in front, because we both don't chat much.
The rest of this group were chatting since they hadn't seen each other in...oh...10 minutes. :-)
Nick's rear and mine. Plus Don and Chief in the lead. We are slowly warming up and heading out of the developed part of the park. We had 3 green horses on the ride so we were careful.
Pam lost her cap as we navigated down some stone stairs. Nick takes the opportunity to eat some veges.
More stairs and Don waits for all to navigate down. Pam lost her cap AGAIN. Alfredo and Beth took the teen girls down to the wash for a gallop.
We crossed the riverbed and climbed back up the canyon. There are no pics of this part because...it was technical, narrow and busy with hikers. Here we are riding along the mesa and are at the halfway point. I love this picture of Nick as he reaches forward in a relaxed walk.
Back at the campground with happy riders and tired horses.
Black Hawk and Nick,
an equine bromance.
We were back home by 10am and eating lunch at a cafe by 11.
Life is good.
