Most People Don’t Know The Pony Express Still Operates In Arizona

Reminiscent of another time, the Pony Express was a mid-19th century mail delivery operation that became a legend in its own right. Running for approximately 18 months between 1860 and 1861, the mail service offered a quicker way of delivering mail between the coasts, boasting of a short ten-day delivery. The service was short-lived and originally did not run through Arizona.

That, however, hasn’t deterred some people from figuring what a Pony Express route through Arizona could have looked more than 150 years ago. In fact, you can witness an operating Pony Express in just a couple weeks!

If you want to send out a letter or two via Pony Express, see the organization’s website for details about where to drop off your letters (multiple locations). You can also visit the same site for details about the trail ride and where you can watch the riders.

If this got you in the mood to experience more of the Old West for yourself, you might want to check out some local saloons! Read about some favorite spots in A Visit To These 13 Saloons In Arizona Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Traveled Back In Time.

SATURDAY IS PHOBLOG DAY!






TODAY, we were supposed to have a Horse and Man Jewelry sale, but again, we will be rained and winded out.  Not complaining.  The fires are out because of all of this rain.  What is amazing to me is that it doesn’t usually rain this hard or this long at this time of year.  I think all of those prayers were answered…

HERE WE GO!

HA!

BEAUTIFUL wild ones.

from Kat Livengood.

Lovely.

From Kat Livengood, again.

Somewhere in Montana…

Our friend, Rebecca and Freckles. You can see why they call him Freckles…

Amen.

Don’t want to see this above my head, but in a photo, she is beautiful. (From Black Jaguar, White Tiger Foundation)

I think this is how pretty much every giraffe is seen by every living thing.

You know this horse loves this body worker.

Pretty barn.

Wow.

Amazing shot.
