Saturday, March17, 2012 – We took advantage of the weekend with Sarah and Jason to go on a guided trail ride, leaving from Goldfield Ghost Town, just across from Lost Dutchman SP.
We saddled up for a two hour ride…..
With a real ‘cowboy’ for a guide…..which was good ……
Since we are mostly just a bunch of ‘city slickers’……having only ridden a few times before.
The trail looks different from the back of a horse. There is a peacefulness in the wide open spaces …..
And an agelessness…..this Saguaro Cactus is over 500 years old. Note the number of ‘arms’ it has.
And beauty underfoot…..such as this cactus flower….as well as all around.
It is good to get this different perspective…… One that you don’t get when you are hiking. And, a really fun time!
