But wouldn't you much prefer to see this Red Castle to seeing castle made of brick and stone built by a rich nobleman in Germany.

One takes a 10 mile horse ride into the wilderness to see it, The other take a all day plane ride cramped into small plane seats. One you get to sleep under the stars at night, the other you seep in a strange hotel bed. One in a place where the worst traffic you will for the day is a troop of boy scouts passing you on the trail vs the congestion of a city.

It's a no brainer to me.

Beautiful country out there. Someday I will take a trip out west again, hopefully with my horse.
But for right now I will just admire everyone else's pictures.

Oops. My post #20 I addressed to Nokota but should have addressed to Painted. My bad! And, my appologies!

And, Painted, YES!, I would MUCH rather see the intricate beauties of our Natural World than anything made by the measly hand of Man.

I would go along on any of those fantastice mountain trail rides. I could be your interpreter. I speak American fluently!

I also speak Japanese, Spanish and a bit of French.
I LOVE my country with the depth of my soul, too and a lifetime wouldn't be enought to see all the great places. But, there IS value in seeing other countries. Not just for seeing castles built of stone hundreds of years ago, but for widening one's understanding of human history and how it set the stage for OUR history, as Americans. Nothing makes you better understand and appreciate your own culture (not necessarily American, just your own, whatever it may be) like spending some time in another culture.

You'd be amazed at what ingenious solutions people have come up with to deal with the challenges they face. I respect that, and all, and I love to travel, but I love to come HOME, too. We are insanely lucky in this country, let us never forget.

I love your goose neck trailer. What brand is it? How do you like it?

It's a Logan XTR, They are made in Logan Utah. They have a steel frame with an aluminum skin.

They are a good mid range trailer. Mine is a 2006 and has held up well.

LOVE the pictures of the scenery.. someday, i will make it out there to ride.

had to chuckle at your versions of camping too. this is a normal ride set-up for me:

i sleep in the gooseneck and am happy for not having the hassle of a tent! i also eat out of a cooler, except for the dinner provided by the ride.

can't imagine the lovely things that would come out of all those dutch ovens or cookers!!

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

OMG I am PEA GREEN with envy looking at these pictures. I want to go trail riding in the West. I have been to Idaho once. Absolutely stunningly gorgeous.

Nokota - I am PEA Green over those Dutch Ovens too! I LOVE to cook (and if I do say so myself, I am a darn good cook) and have wanted to learn the art of DO cooking over coals. Maybe one of these days. Heck, I think I have a cast iron DO in the shed. Hummmmmmm......maybe next time we go to Ebenezer I will give it a whirl.
