Where We Ride...


For months now, I've wanted a chance to share some of our great New Mexico riding trails with those
who either don't ride horses, or haven't had a chance to ride them here.  Last weekend, our dear friends
from Michigan, The Dake's, joined us at our house and now FINALLY, thanks to Shelley's camera,
I have photos to share!  This was taken in Muleshoe Canyon, just a mile from our house.  The canyons
are spectacular, this one being a box canyon which ends right behind shere Gene and Scooter are
standing.


Another shot of Muleshoe canyon.  You can see where the water runs off the top of the mesa.  Absolutely gorgeous, with Ocotillo Cactus, Yucca, Claret Cactus, flowers galore, and of course, the
horse's special friends, the Javelina wild pigs, which are thankfully, not pictured here because
they stink...really stink.


This is the view coming out of the canyons.  Muleshoe of in the background to the left, and San
Andreas Canyon is directly behind Gene and Scooter in this photo.  At night, the sunsets light up these
hills..gorgeous pink and orange colors.  To say I am blessed is truly an understatement!


Shelley did a great job taking this photo!  This is headed south towards Oliver Lee State Park.
Everyone is welcome to come ride with me...I've got lots of places to show you!

I'd love to stick around and chat, but as you can see, we're about to pass you and keep riding...

Until next time..Linda
