Owyhee Tough Sucker I

April 6 2013

It was another lovely ride on my pal Jose, with good friends and great trails, under cool and cloudy and rainy and sunny and stormy skies, in the first local endurance ride of the season!

Jose vetting in with Robert the vet

An imaginative Owyhee trail marker

Steph and John up on the Hallelujah Ridge Trail

Jose doing his thang - observing the scenery and deep thinking

Headed to Wild Horse Butte

The Snake River

Steph and Rhett, me and Jose above the Snake River

We rode in an awesome desert-gulping rainstorm, enough to make the footing slick-snot slippery

And the sun came back out

And another storm cloud came!

  1. Some d a y - I will head out your way! I can't take not seeing that country for "real"!

  2. Looks like a great ride, except for maybe the deluge and slick places. Hope we can go out there to check it out someday.
    This weekend, we hope to trek to Antelope Island to try a day of limited distance. That's a big enough adventure for now!

  3. What an adventure! Love the photos! Jose is GORGEOUS!

  4. Looks like a great ride except for the rain, hope there was no lightening. Jose seems to really enjoy his rides and he's very thoughtful too. What a great horse!

  5. What a great ride! glad you and Jose got another one in the bag.


  6. Woo Hoo! Gorgeous Ride, Even With Wickedness In Slickness!
    That Jose Is The Best.
