Chief Joseph Trail Ride 2009

OliviaMeet Olivia. She participated in a ceremony to honor the Nez Perce at the Big Hole National Battlefield. The event marked the end of this year’s ApHC-sponsored Chief Joseph Trail Ride. More than 150 riders got to experience some of the most scenic parts of the trail — and some of the most historically significant and personally emotional. Warm weather, no major storms, good food, lots of evening entertainment/education and a family reunion of sorts, all combined to make it a very good year for the CJTR.

I’ll fill in some of the blanks after I get official reports from ride coordinator Kevin Pullen. In the meantime, there is a photo album available now. Click on the album link at left and go to the Flickr files. As mentioned several times before, I am not a professional photographer, so you get what you get. I will say, the photo on this post is definitely one of my favorites.

    Hi everyone,

    Back to the real world and its a drag! It seemed like we created a separate space and time for the week of the ride. i envy those of you who had farther to drive b/c for me it was like descending too fast from a high altitude. Still feel more like I am there than here…Thanks to all of you for making my first year unforgettable.
