|There were a few trees here and there as we climbed,|
|...but mostly it looked like this. With each turn, the roads became more narrow and full of ruts.|
|Every so often there would be a big ol' house in the middle of nowhere.|
|You could see forever. This is looking south out of the truck window|
|After an hour and a half of driving, the pavement ended. The last half hour was dirt road.|
|The dirt road started out wide, with some washboard. Brett went slow but we still felt bad for the horses.|
|Then the road got narrow.|
|Fortunately there were many of these signs so we knew we were going in the right direction.|
|Cattle started appearing, sleeping under trees or scrub.|
|After crossing this cattle grate, we were officially on ranch property.|
|Finally, we arrived!|
It took us two hours to drive 60 miles so it was a very slow, twisty, narrow journey.
After arriving, we unloaded, signed in, paid our fee for the day, and got the horses tacked up for the first adventure -- which I will share with you tomorrow. Right now I'm going to take a much needed shower, turn the clocks back, and go to bed an hour early without feeling guilty. Brett and I are both exhausted -- as are Flash and Winston.
