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 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, January 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Fort Apache, Arizona
Hubby and I stopped at Fort Apache, which is on the Apache reservation in central Arizona. We had driven up the Mogollon Rim to find and rent our cabin during a week in August and we got a nice one with a large porch that faces the national forest. Apparently elk come down from the hills during the night, so we should have some interesting sightings! And, speaking of sightings, I believe I saw a ghost yesterday at Fort Apache! Hubby had wandered off, taking his own 10,000 photos and I was alone, wandering around when suddenly a young girl of about 8 or 9 years was walking next to me. She was talking, too, although I couldn't hear a word she was saying! Apparently she had quite a bit to say...I just couldn't hear it! DARN! She was blonde and her hair was in ringlets. She wore a black, long sleeved jacket over a black and white dress or skirt, which had quite a few petticoats under it! It was red with black velvet-like swirls on it...????? Weird, huh? That place always gives me the creeps. It is always windy up there and you can just FEEL the presence of the departed. HA! My husband thinks I'm nuts and is busy telling our children that I have gone off the deep end! (I HAVE NOT!!!!) Anyway, here are some photos of the fort...what do you think?
