Back Country Horseback Ride

On our last full day Glen and I went on a half day horse back ride.  It was a cool rainy day, but the horses were nice and warm so we didn’t get cold.  It was a very fun and different thing to do, however, my backside was definitely sore by the end of the ride.

My horse is the butt on the left.  His name was Chickasaw.

Meet Glens horse.  His name was Calhoun.

Off we go…..There was a group of six of us.  There was a couple from Boston and the other couple was from upstate New York.  The couple from New York had a very had time controlling their horses.

Entering a nice treed area….getting close to our lunch break.

Here I am waiting my turn to get off my horse so I can eat my lunch.  The lady in the background with the cowboy hat on was our guide.  Her name was Carrie and she was very knowledgeable about the area and….well….horses.

Image

We took a different trail back to the Corral.  The guide called it “the hoo doo’s”.  It was a very rocky area that was affected by an earthquake.  All the rocks were laying every which way.

Image

When we got back to the corral where the horse trailer was, this bull buffalo was walking down the road.  Our guide was like we need to hurry, hurry, hurry and get off these horses.  She said that buffalo scared her far worse than bears, because buffalo were so very unpredictable and fast.

After our horseback ride we decided to drive over to an area that we hadn’t been to yet, the Tower/Roosevelt area.  It was a cloudy rainy day and we didn’t see much and I was having a very hard time keeping my eyes open and kept nodding off.   We had decided earlier that we would take a side/scenic road, which turned out to be a non paved road that was rougher than rough.  Along the way we came across a momma black bear and her cub.  SCORE!  The only critters that were on our list to see that we didn’t see were a moose and wolves.  Maybe someday we will be able to see them in the wild.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
