I have NO idea how old you are, but do you want to adopt a son??

Man that is beautiful country, and fall hunting out of a wall tent........that's just a dream for this North Eastern boy!!!!!

I live in some beautiful country, but summer riding.....the woods are like a jungle. with mosquitos, deer flies, poison ivy, heat HUMIDITY(I HATE humidity), it can be kind of tough. Fall is our best riding, but bow season comes in mid october and being a hunter I tend to stay out of the woods and not bother the hunters.

I told my wife that when the youngest goes to college, we are heading to the southwest..

Here is a pic from my front door.

one of my summer rides from the house.

Life is like a bronc ride. You gotta hang on, ride it out, and Let er buck!!!!!

Nice area, Nokota. But I don't do humidity very well, either! I actually wish I lived in Southern Idaho again instead up up here on the Palouse--it's a lot drier down there. But, alas, this is now home.

And, truth be told, there's plenty of riding to do around here--even if the wooded areas are buried in snow right now!

South of Lewiston is the Craig Mountain Wildlife Management Area. It's about 4000 feet, but fairly desert country. I need to get down there and see what they get for snow. It's only 40 or 50 miles from home but I think it's enough drier that there may be better riding down there all winter.

Maybe that'll be my next adventure. . . .

Wow! what a beautiful landscape that is on everyone's photos!
My greatest wish is to fly to the us and see everything with my own eyes =)

Just keep in mind, Cowgirl, that a lot of people from the US want to fly to Sweden to see everything with their own eyes! Until and unless you've seen everything to see "at home" it don't make much sense to go elsewhere to look! IMHO!

I had an office partner once who was telling me about a recent vacation to Bejing. I asked him why he went there for vacation. He said he wanted to see something different. I asked him if he'd ever seen the Rocky Mountains or the Everglades. He said, well, no, but he also wanted to experience a different culture. I asked him if he'd ever been to southern Louisiana. He hadn't, but didn't really have a response, either.

Someday, if I live long enough, I'll go visit places outside my home country--just as soon as I've seen and done everything I want to do here. Until then, I'll not spend the time nor money to travel internationally.

But, if I live long enough, maybe, someday. 'Course, I might have to live to 200 years old, but one never knows for sure!

Anyway, enjoy what you have. Do not assume the grass is greener on the other side of the fence--'cause if you do you may well be disappointed once you get there.

Sorry for the sermon. I'll get off the soapbox now.

Looks like fun! Noticed your username and profile pic, you have a Nokota? They're one of my favorite breeds

Equinephile Yes, I do have a Nokota. I cant say they are my favorite breed yet as I have only worked with mine and would not be fair to say they are my favorite.....yet!!!!! But I have been VERY happy with mine. Personality, temperment, willingness to learn, she will always have a place with me. If I ever look for more horses, I am DEFINITELY looking at the Nokota first.

Sailor, My wife likes to travel and has taken my daughters to Bejing, Cario, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Sydney, as well as the promenant US cities of Washington DC, NY, Seattle and many trips to California. I haven't gone with her on hardly any of those trips. I was usually on my horse exploring some remote corner of the west instead.

My neighbor was chastising me one evening. He said, "You haven't lived until you see the Castle along the rhine in Germany". I replied he hadn't lived because he had not seen Square top in the Wind River Wilderness or Red Castle in the Uinta Wilderness. He replied Touche' and has never said another word to me about it.

Painted Horse, I have to agree with you. I would much rather have explored the west on horseback like you have than visited all the foreign and prominent US cities.

Great pic by the way!!!

Nokota, I guess to each his or her own!

For me it's not just seeing the pretty sights--although that is part of it. But the larger portion is that THIS is MY country and I want to get to know her. I want to understand why my forefathers fought to make her whole. I want to appreciate why my brothers and sisters are still fighting to keep her whole. I want to know her intimately in the tiniest details and grandly in the big picture.

THIS is MY country. MY home. And until and unless I know her I have no need nor desire to know anywhere else.
