I really enjoyed your photos, thanks for posting them. I just have a couple of ??. Are the squiggly looking trees gum trees? The red flowers look like tulips are they and of so do they just grow wild? Are you American or Aussie? That's it

Everyone has great places to ride. Makes riding so much more fun to get out in the wild, wide open.
I think I've posted photos of our home trails. We usually see lots of wild turkey, quail, deer, coyote, occasional bobcat, hawks, turkey vultures, owls, and various tweety birds. Of course lots of cattle and certain times of the year an abundance of native wild flowers that I am always called upon to identify.

Yes there are soooo many gum trees in the bush. We even have eucalyptus called Squiggly Gum because they have these little brown squiggles over the pale bark. There is also a lot of paperbark which can be a bit squiggly looking too. This has bushy sort of foliage on it.

The red flowers are definitely not tulips, we have enough trouble trying to grow them in controlled conditions at home! They are an Aussie native but I have tried searching for them to no avail, maybe tonight I will try again.

And I am an Australian married to an American, just waiting for my immigration VISA :(


Now I just wanted to say...
Painted Horse, I LOVE your pics. It is an amazing area where you ride.
And Bitless I would love to have a beach to ride near, so jealous.

Parkerhorse, I'm in Utah. We ride the high country during the warmer months and the deserts of Southern Utah during the colder months,
