HI AGAIN! Yesterday I wrote about returning from my recent vacation to the R Lazy S Ranch. You can read that post here.
We (Hubby and two sets of neighbors plus Tom, our good friend) had another memorable and wonderful experience!
My PhotoJournal Part 2. (To see photojournal Part 1, click here.)
Another view of the gorgeous grounds…
There are canals and rivers that feed the irrigation as well as the Snake River.
My favorite part is the water… I love seeing water with trees and mountains.
Two of the wranglers did an impromptu serenade at the evening campfire. I’m not one for group events or campfires… but this one has incredible, INCREDIBLE food and the people are riotous. We always have fun.
This is artist John Mortensen. He is the brother of 30 year Wrangler and Barn Boss, Dan Mortensen. One of the highlights of our stay is venturing to John’s studio where he lets you inside and behind the scenes of his artwork. (Bronze, mostly)
Another amazing view from one of the all-day rides.
Team Penning. We didn’t win.
This was my Team Penning team. Hubby, Tom and me. Cash is amazing at this game! Me, not so much.
The sun came out again!
This is me, all bundled up, on Jazzy. We were ready to depart on an all day ride up into the Teton National Park. That huge Mountain Horse puffy jacket kept me and my saddle very warm and dry. (no affiliation)
Another day on Cash. Here I am with my neighbors in what used to be a hay field for an old, now defunct ranch.
I know that I hate having my photo taken so I took this one to prove I was there. But, other people had a few shots of me that they lent for this post.
Ahhhh, a happy equine blogger on her favorite horse in her favorite place in a HUGE, open field. (Note Cash’s tongue. He’s not as pleased.)
Another rainy day. We tied up the horses and had lunch here, below the snowy mountains.
Those are nice cabins, eh? They belong to the Park Service now.
Hubby and Wrangler Steve play on Talent Night (surprisingly fun and not hokey). Wrangler Steve writes his own songs and they are hilarious! It was wonderful to hear everyone laughing and musing to his songs. Hubby sings other people’s songs, beautifully
Alas, here is me, trotting off into the clouds on my trusty steed, Cash. It was glorious. Until we meet again, Tetons, until we meet again…
IT WAS GLORIOUS.
THANK YOU GOD, MOTHER NATURE AND THE R LAZY S RANCH!
