With weather so mild and snowless, we've been riding almost every day. Twelve Mile Wash is close to home and quite convenient for daily workouts.
We find interesting rock formations,
and vistas of mountains over sandy canyons and sandstone hills.
In over 60 miles of riding this week, we haven't met a soul on this huge BLM (Bureau of Land Management) tract.
A power line passes overhead in one place. We followed the sandy access road along part of our trek.
When we came up on our first white cow, the horses were terrified. Apparently they thought it was a giant sheep/ogre, and Boss believes any sheep is out to kill him. Later, seeing the white ones among the more acceptable black color gave the horses new confidence that these were harmless cows, not scary abominable sheep-creatures.
I had never seen a "witness post" sign like this before. Someone has used it for target practice, proving their semi-amazing criminal marksmanship.
