In 2013, the Jaroso Fire in the Pecos Wilderness was 100% contained on August 5th. On Labor Day, 2013, the Back Country Horsemen rode through the fire scar on the way to our annual trip to Beatty’s Cabin. We have been back every year since.
Here are the blog links and after that, a compilation of photos.
2013: Burn n Bridge. This is the funniest of the three, I think. It features Longshot and his non-compliant pack string ways. Longshot (now 6) was my lead horse for 2016.
2014: Bridge Club. This one features a bridge that we rode over this year and I must say it still looks really good in 2016! There is a picture at the bottom of the blog.
2015: Beatty’s Cabin, 2015. Lots of linseed oil in this one!
Fire scar Labor Day weekend, 2013. The fire was contained in August and we had a lot of rain. The amount of regrowth that occurred in a month was amazing!

No photos of the aspen area. Geez. What was I thinking?? The understory is thickening year by year!
Fire scar Labor Day weekend, 2016. Even more ground cover and burned trees are becoming less noticeable
Here are a couple of other pictures from the trip.
These trails are only a two hour drive from our house! How cool is that?
