From the Far Side
The indicated path led to a steep sandstone path that burros had been using. It probably was do-able on horseback, if one was willing to risk life and limb of horse and rider.
We weren't willing. If our livelihood depended on it, or if the high sheriff was hot on our heels for our latest train robbery (as might have happened to the early residents of Robber's Roost), maybe we would have taken the leap, so to speak.
Note to PAULA, who asked about rides in the San Rafael Swell: I answered you via the comment section on the posts you addressed. I don't have your email address to reply directly.
