Yesterday, Anna, our new wrangler from Australia, and I rode to Crestone from the Sand Dunes with 5 guests. On a trail I knew well in parts, others I had seen once whilst riding in the mountains as a child with my dad and brother and many bits I did not know at all, we set off on an exciting 8 hours. We set off at the beginning of the trail at 9 on the dot and with just one little wrong turn up a canyon about a mile, we rode into Crestone at a gallop to meet Danielle and the trailer to take us home around 5:00. It was a beautiful ride shared with great company and for some of us, a highlight of our riding experience.
