A year ago today, I stopped to visit Lady Long Rider Bernice Ende at her cabin in Trego, Montana, on my way to British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. She lives within 10 miles of the Canadian border. Bernice insisted that I stay for dinner and spend the night and so I did. She is the only person in history to ride horseback from her home in Montana to the Atlantic coast in Maine, back across the continent to the Pacific coast in Washington, and then returning to home in Montana–a total of more than 8,000 miles on horseback. In this photo, she is writing an entry in her journal. You can read about part of her epic ride here: http://www.lifeinthefingerlakes.com/happy-trails-2/.
