While a good number of my Appaloosa cow horse friends were at the Appaloosa World Show (doing a great job! I hope Indy will be good enough to go in 2019), me and my own cow horse turned trail horse for this week, LT, Jim and my BCH buddies Peter and Mary Ann went to clean up a junky, litter-strewn hunting camp in the Pecos Wilderness, for the Forest Service.
Mary Ann and I made a first run at it Friday Oct 23, but only made Beatty’s Cabin (14 mile round trip) due to unforeseen minor, but delaying, complications. Since the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder, we wanted to check this box before the snow froze the high country off for the season. October 28 looked like it could work for the 22 mile round trip. A little cold, but no chance of precipitation
We saddled up in 23 degree F weather
We left Jack’s Creek at 840 am (left home at 545 am).
