If you're feeling blah, or deflated, or out of sorts, and you really can't be motivated to be impassioned because you can't ride your favorite horse because he has an ill-timed allergy attack, the best thing that can happen is that your friend talks you into climbing aboard one of her extra lovely horses, who gets you out on another spectacular Owyhee trail, like 50 miles on Day 1 of the Owyhee Canyonlands.
When your horse takes you up to the mouth of Brown's Creek Canyon
then climbs above it
so you can look down in it
then he takes you to the Spivey Ranch on Castle Creek for lunch
then he takes you further up Castle Creek
then he climbs up out of Castle Creek
and he carries you back toward home across the Brown's Creek drainage
and across and up the steep hill out of Alder Creek
and across and up the very steep hill out of Hart Creek
and back home,
you know that if it doesn't cure what ails ya, riding in Owyhee is at least good medicine.
Thanks Judy and Milon!
