I spent the last three days on horseback, seeing those parts of Colorado that can only be seen well on foot or hoof. There are so many fabulous scenes to share. I will post pictures of the heroes of the journey, the horses, and a few sky and mountain scenes that take one’s breath away. First, meet Desert Diamond (Dee Dee), a spunky little Arabian gelding who faithfully hauls the kids around the arena and up mountain trails.
We have one gentleman on the trail with bedroom eyes and a taste for Lodge Pole Pine bark, Ranger.
The views from Mosquito Mountain above Greenland (half way between Colorado Springs and Castle Rock, a vast rolling grassland that flanks I25 and runs up to the mountains) are terrific.
The rocks are truly red and the sky is so blue.
