More than likely, we would also take a seat seperate from the other lonely passenger. However, I might sit near, (not next to) the other person and if, after observing them for a bit, they seemed friendly, I might talk to them. It really depends on the situation. In all honesty, I would probably sit in my own world, lonely too.
When the bus is more crowded, people are more likely to talk to each other. I am far more outgoing than average and I meet the nicest people by being outgoing. Most people are really good and worth knowing.
I need to check out of the forum for a bit as I am going for a ride; in the rain. Fall is already here. We had a short and cool summer; very disappointing.

Cori, that's a lovely shot, but I'm a mountain lover.

Give me the Jackson Hole area of Wyoming, or any of the Yellowstone areas of Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho.

I've never seen such beauty in one place. I think Virginia's lovely, but next to those places, Virginia looks like an ugly step sister!

Snake River, just outside Jackson Hole:

^^SR that was very bad of you. I already have a list of national parks to visit and now you have added another grrr. After Yosemite, Yellowstone and Big Bend I guess I will have to visit Grand Teton. And when will I ever find time to get to Peru?

Interesting thread, I have always wondered how different parts of the world view each other.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Oh I love the mountains. Love em! I live near em! There are so many breathtaking places here...I get so irritated when people think there is no vacation unless it involves the beach!

This is a natural ampitheater in Colorado. We drove all the way from PA to see a concert there and it was amazing.

Sarah, a group of us went to Wyoming for a riding vacation five years ago.

The whole Grand Teton area around Yellowstone and Jackson Hole looks like that.

We rode in scenery like that for a full week. That was the only vacation I've ever taken where I cried the day we got on the plane to come home.

If I had been 20 years younger, I'd have moved out there in a heartbeat. I still miss it terribly. I'd go back in a New York second if given the chance.

That is truly God's country, and one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

One day! My sister (who does endurance racing) is desperate for us to go away camping with the horses. Although we probably won't take our horses that far maybe I could convince her to come with me and we could hire some horse up there, it would be amazing. I probably wouldn't want to leave either!

Horse vacations

OMG! This probably should come under a new thread, but since I'm new to the whole forum format and online communications (I'm 52 so probably a dinosaur to you'all), anyway, I would love to solicit from folks the best horse riding vacation they have ever done. Now, as I don't actually own a horse (I lease) and I don't have a trailer to take my lease horse outside of the area he is living in. SOOOO, I would love to do a commercial horse vacations someday and I would love to hear from folks regarding their recommendations.

I live in Washington State. We have everything; mountains, farmland, deserts, rivers, beaches. Seattle is one of the most beautiful modern cities in the world. I do not put it in the same class as old European cities, Heck we only have 150 years here, so give us a break.
Ok, I will quit braggin' and you all see what you can come up with for your riding vacation ideas. I will see if I can start a new thread too.

Of course, I think I mentioned that I love Vancouver. BC is totally awesomely beautiful and magnificent. But don't tell too many people, ok? Let's keep it our secret, for you to live in and me to occasionallly visit.
Are you in the Vancouver area? Lot of horse stuff around there and around Kelowna.
