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, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Around Arizona

We didn't get a whole lot done yesterday over here in Arizona.  We ran errands all morning and picked up lunch (BBQ wings from AJ's), went back to the hotel, took a nap.  Ahhhhh~vacation!  Finally, about 4:00 p.m., we headed over to the Bush Highway and down the road by the Salt River.  Thunderheads were forming again over Globe and it looked like they were having a terrific thunderstorm by dusk.  There was a full moon last night and I wanted to stop and get some photos of it next to a saguaro, but we headed back to the hotel...sigh...I'm not sure what HIS HIGHNESS has planned for today...???  Top photo is a picture of the sunrise after our storm over Scottsdale yesterday morning.  We woke up at 4:40 to watch it, then it headed west...Mikey, did you get it?  Then, I snapped this pic of hubby taking a photograph over at the Salt River.  There must have been an accident over there as a helicopter flew overhead and then an ambulance came flying down the road...

I love that drive. I'd like to do that area on the Bush on horseback. So pretty.
