Below is one of my favorites views. It doesn’t matter where I am or who I’m with. The view from the back of my horse is the best! I love going riding, it doesn’t even matter the weather. Of course, I think of the comforts of Hondo. In the summertime in Tucson, it can be extremely hot and riding during the heat of the day is just not comfortable for him or very smart for me. That is why we go at 5 AM in the summer. In the winter we pretty much go most anytime.
Today was one of those times that we could leave at anytime, so when I got done with work for the day, Hondo and I left for a ride. During today’s ride we passed the petroglyphs. These petroglyphs are near a retreat center and they have tons of visitors. I enjoy them because I can ride Hondo there and have a small picnic. Near these petroglyphs there is a rock that Hondo and I usually stop at and it was here that I was having my peanut butter sandwich (my usual staple for every meal!) and feeding Hondo some carrots when I wondered how old the petroglyphs were and what were the people like that made them. They may have even sat on the same rock I was on pondering the past. I live only about 3 miles from the petroglyphs and I have never bothered to learn about them.
Its amazing all the history that is so close to us and we can pass it everyday and experience tunnel vision. I have been doing tons of studying on the Arizona Trail that I forgot about the things that I see all the time while I’m out riding. I think I’m going to search the petroglyphs and learn more about them…
Until next time…. TC
