Sunday greetings from high above the Shoe Box Canyon. Yesterday, my wife Julia and I rode to the top of the mountain behind our cabin. I thought you’d enjoy some photos of the ride.
Julia rode her pony Pie. I rode my mule Cracker. From the clearing high above the cabin, we just looked out over the Brushy Mountains to our South. We listened to the “chimp pang” call of a scarlet tanager hidden in a chestnut oak tree. We let Pie and Cracker nibble on some locust sprouts. And then we rode home.
New Book Update
On a completely different note, the first draft of my new book about riding my mules Cracker and Brick from North Carolina to Idaho is complete. That’s a huge deal. Julia and I have been working on this project a year and a half now.
There’s a whole update coming soon on this. If you’d like a heads up on when the book is available for pre-order, just sign up for the RiverEarth.com newsletter. It just takes a sec and you can do it right here.
