City of Rocks: Year II

Thursday August 1 2013

Half the herd (human and horse) has arrived at City of Rocks, getting set for this year's 5-day City of Rocks Pioneer Trails Endurance Ride, August 6-10.

It's about 10 degrees cooler than Owyhee (hallelujah!), though there are some thunderstorms in the forecast (eek!) (I brought real Turquoise Beads, to wear properly in my hair, and my horse's hair!).

Stay tuned!

Bodie was afraid of this water trough (it's his first time here) when he first got here… but later he splashed and splashed and splashed in it. Made a big mess, actually.

Jose getting a good belly scratch (he chases me around for one!), while observing the valley east of City of Rocks National Reserve.
