Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

deer and Mono Lake

Yesterday was a busy day! I awoke at 5:15 a.m. to the chatter of SOMETHING outside our motel window. As I opened the door cautiously, two raccoons went scampering away! Little buggers! So, I woke up hubby and we went for an early morning photo opportunity. We drove from June Lake around the loop to Silver Lake. Silver Lake has a mirror-like surface because not that many people use it. There is a boat rental place run by a fellow Southern Californian who owns a malamute called "Sundance". Nice man and a nice dog! After taking 10,000 photos there, we walked across the street to a little cafe and grocery store for breakfast. Yum, yum! We spotted 4 deer down the road, in the aspen, so I got out and followed them for a while.

In the afternoon we took a ride to Mammoth Lakes and followed the road up to the Minarets. Unfortunately, we were shooting into the sun, so our photos came out very washed, this morning, we are heading back. We ended our day at Mono Lake, in the early evening.
