The wild beauty of the San Rafael Desert never grows old. This view of the Henry Mountains and red rock formations is a favorite.
On our first afternoon ride in Canyon Country, Daisy meets this wild fellow. He hee-haws at her vigorously and gives us the evil eye.
That's our first burro sighting, but not the last.
A handsome burro pair gawks at us from a meadow.
Later, and miles farther from camp, we spot this trio, one of which appears to be a youngster.
This is our camp, with Steve and the horses settling in.
Daisy settles in, too. She enjoys her Dinty Moore beef stew. (She gets the can to lick after we eat most of it for our supper.)
At night, we hear coyotes howl. Toward morning, we hear the burros hee-hawing loudly and close by, perhaps urging us to come out and explore.
And the next day, that's what we do.
To be continued...
