I made it to Wyoming and the start of the Rocky Mountains. I’ve had some excellent Hosts the first couple of days in Wyoming. http://join.nokidhungry.org/site/TR/PFR/DD_Pers_Fund_13?px=3432979&pg=personal&fr_id=1473
Rest days are very important to the horses. I like to drive 3 days rest 1 then drive 3 days and rest 2 days seems to be the best pattern for Renegade and Star-Buck. In the last 13 days I went from Brule NE to just east of Lyman NE. Here are some of the Sights I seen along the way.
I am in open range country which means cattle guards and Gates here are some pictures explaining what that means.
I’ve hit the North Platte River Valley and it’s beautiful. I’ve been traveling south of the Platte River on the Oregon Trail. I’m on a beautiful road through open range land. Driving through open range is a beautiful except that when you have open range you have cattleguards. On road 54 south of Lisco Ne. I’ve had to open up and pass through 9 cattleguard gates. Still I enjoyed the drive today.
An old house you could feel the history
I’ve made Brule NE and the Oregon Trail today. It was a wet cold day but made it to a great host. I’ve decided that I am going to do the smart thing and not do California Hill. But here is a picture of me and Schatzie at the beginning of the California Hill.
