Where did I put that bedroll?

scratching-your-head.jpgI’ll admit that I’m no photographer, but I do know that late afternoon light is good for making the effort. As I wandered around the Chief Joseph Trail Ride camp Thursday evening on Bill and Ramona Holt’s property east of Florence, Montana, I did manage to catch a few interesting scenes. This one is pretty basic, but it tells the story of day’s end. Horse care comes first, then it’s off to scrub up before dinner.

It’s interesting to watch people and how they choose to make use of the “down” time. Several were reading, lots were engaged in wide-ranging conversations, others decided a nap would be nice. Still others went for walks to get the kinks out after a day in the saddle(Thursday’s ride was 15.5 miles).

    Just have to say that after a few months of a crashed computer in the shop and having to miss the ride this year, it is a pleasure to see the reports. I only was able to do the ride in “07” as a driver but what fun and with luck will be able to participate in some way in the future.
    Thank you for the updates, info and the photos, they all were wonderful.
