Salt River Wild Horses
4. Salt River Wild Horses  (March 7, 2017)
I learned about this unique band of wild horses that live in the Tonto National Forest, near Scottsdale, Arizona and began following them on Instagram @srwhmg. The mustangs are adapted to the desert climate and survive by utilizing the Salt River for water, food (aquatic plants) and heat relief. They are incredibly beautiful and I made a trip to see them for myself.

If you are interested and want to learn more about them, or wish to help protect them, visit Salt River Wild Horse Management Group.

Bosque Farms Ranch-Sorting Show
5. Bosque Farms Ranch-Sorting Show  (February 4, 2017)
This was the first time I have watched this event and I found it fascinating to observe the horses and their keen attitude to working the calves. The riders are given a start number as the flag drops and they have one minute to move the first numbered calf into the adjacent pen and then with their team partner, continue to move the calves in numeric order one at a time.

The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is always a surprise and a treat. You never know what the weather will do or what birds and animals you'll see. Sometimes I go hoping to catch the full moon rising over the fields and ponds only to find it obscured by clouds. The clouds might make for a colorful sunset. It is best to stay open to whatever nature might spring on you.

This was the second year for The Horse Shelter's Trainers Rally for Rescues event, in which 9 trainers took home a horse selected by a draw and had 100 days to train them from scratch. The horses were aged from 3-6 years old and other than haltering and trailer-loading, had no prior experience. At the end of the competition, all were available for adoption. Two of the trainers successfully bid for their horses at the end.

42. Colombia  (Feb. 2014)
We loved Colombia! We had an excellent trip via car in a big loop out from Medellin, plus one flight down to the Pacific coast and back. The people were lovely, very happy to help visitors with directions and advice, and the parks and wild places gave us lots of good experiences. We saw twice as many birds as we could identify, so we will just have to return and practice with our field guides. Highly recommended is "Birdwatching in Colombia" by Pablo Florez.
