April 25th Box Canyon # 3 !!

Like I had said in the previous couple of blogs,

Can't get enough of Box Canyon!!

This time (Saturday 4/25th) many more came to join in in the ride compared to last Wednesday.
We were going to start out early again but someone had to work the night before and needed an extra hour to be able to get there after work so we waited.

Half of the group decided the other half were going too slow...

So they formed their own little group and galloped off ahead of us slow pokes..

" Life can't get much better than this"...
One member brought her 8 year old daughter (in the pink helmet) along - I hope her Mom knows how lucky she is to have such a trustworthy horse for her daughter to ride. I hope I can have my Grand Daughter ride with me someday like that...

We rode out to the same area as we had stopped for snacks Wednesday but stayed
longer and ate the sack lunches we brought...

Mocha likes to make new friends too...

Another great ride in Box Canyon /
Wickenburg Arizona....

April 22nd Box Canyon AGAIN!

The ride we did here on April 17th
just wasn't enough to get Box Canyon in Wickenburg out of my syst
em so I posted a planned ride again for Wednesday the 22nd of April on AZ Back Country Riders Dot Com.
What a neat bunch the members are on that site! Can go for a trail ride and make new friends almost anywhere in Arizona. Just have to cash in enough cans for enough gas money!...

We met at the parking area about 9 am and headed out by 9:30. Mocha had been there the week before so was more relaxed and it was a pleasant ride.

The forecast was calling for low 90's temps so only 2 members showed up.

One of them (in the green shirt) is local so I can count on her to join me just about anytime I want to ride in the Wickenburg area. The other on the elegant bay (the woman with the soccer ball on her head - Lol) traveled from 2 hours away ! She had never been to Box Canyon before
and was not disappointed one bit~
Will have to do this again!!

We rode a little farther up the river than we had the 17th. Found a nice shady spot to rest and munch on snacks.

We didn't stay long before turning back. Was a good ride with no mishaps and I was even back at home by 2 PM.
