Skipping right over day 4 and 5 for now… sorry for the cliffhanger, we’ll come back to it when I can get my media together.
We’re halfway through our Coconino adventure and I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we’d be happy to stay here forever. Definitely not tired of it yet… not even tired of camping.
Since Monday was really our only totally free day, we seized the opportunity to a) get stuff done b) have some fun. We got up before 5 and were able to turn the boys out in a free arena for 2 hours. They had a blast and seemed very happy to stretch their legs.
I haven’t been to the Grand Canyon since I was a kid, so it was fun to see it again. It’s just so massive and incredible to see in person. I also brought some of my moms ashes to spread there, which was pretty cool too.
Plus we saw a squirrel drinking from a water bottle, which was a definite highlight…
After we got back we all hopped on our ponies for a nice long bareback hack down the trails of the park. Our life does not suck… this is just the most amazing experience. By far the best Monday ever.
After our hack we really had nothing left to do but bed the horses down and treat ourselves to a pretty damn fancy dinner.
I also finally had the chance to plug my computer in and take a look at the helmet cam video… can we just talk about this corner for a minute? Holy $@&!
