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.

Mountain fire update 072213

According to the local news, the fire is now 68% contained and Idyllwild will open to visitors TODAY!  We had rain here in the valley and in our mountains Saturday night/Sunday morning.  Why, there were even puddles out in our street!   :-)  Idyllwild got over an inch of rain, which really helped to put out most of the fire.  I took a drive up Highway 74 (our road to Idyllwild) and saw fire personnel coming DOWN the mountain, instead of driving up it.  We had clouds all over the valley yesterday and I slept through the lightning and thunder early Sunday morning.  So, I was itching for a drive up the mountain road to see the clouds.  Aren't they beautiful?  I figure they are the promise of good things to come!   :-)
