2 MILES, 2000 FT. in 2 HOURS

Mt. Garfield is our desert mountain; standing 2000ft. above the valley with a 2 mile trail going up the side. It's very steep quite unlike any other trail I've hiked. Terran and I took a beautiful, cool Saturday morning a couple weeks ago & made the climb. It's something that locals can't help but do once in a while. There is even a running race up and down it in the Spring.

A little breathless, but we conquered the mount.

Trying not to let the unease show.

Kaia didn't like being that high in the least bit. Aside from being slightly cross eyed in the picture she had a panicked look on her face while we were on top. While...

Kojo the daredevil just had to see what was at the bottom.

The highlight of the hike was the wild horses we saw on the trail. They were absolutely gorgeous. We love how strong and healthy they looked.

This guy looked a little sad we were leaving, or maybe he's just playing peekaboo.

I have thought that I should post a picture of Mt Garfield, and never have!! Thanks for the pictures and info on it!! You guys are something else, always having fun hiking!! We are blessed with so many different places to see around here!
The wild horses are beautiful!! I didn't know they existed there, either.
You got some good shots of them.

I'm so jealous! My shorts have been packed away for some time now :) I enjoy hiking--that looked steep. Beautiful scenery with the horses.
