how to feel small…on horseback….

Another view of Twin Peaks and Bells Canyon from a different perspective…and yes, there are horses with riders…tiny in comparison with the grandness of the mountains…but you can find them about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom…very close to the left edge of the photo….

  1. I often imagined Pioneers crossing those wide expanses and incredibly high mountains… hard to believe folks actually set out to tackle them on foot or horses or in wagons. Another very beautiful scene, Scott.

    • I’ve given it a lot of thought, too, Gunta…thinking I might have been born in the wrong era…. It’s wonderful to contemplate out there. Thank you.

  2. My first thought upon reading your title was, “Sit astride a really big horse,” but you’re right. The riders really do put things in perspective. And what a grand place for a horseback ride!

    • I’ve seen folks on some pretty large horses out there, Gary…and the mountains still have them beat! And yes, it is a grand place. 🙂

  3. It took me a while, but I found them. They must have felt small.

    It’s amazing to think the early pioneers crossed mountains like these on horseback and probably no trail to guide them.
    (I’m afraid my eyesight is too poor to see the horseback riders in this one).

  8. A great way to explore all that magnificent landscape, Scott……in our teens, my sister and I went hacking, and then when my own boys were that age we did the same……a great feeling to be sitting on a horse, so long as the trail isn’t too steep or stony.

    • I’ve only been riding a couple of times, John, many years ago, too…but yes, a very nice way to go exploring…especially out here.

  10. I’m with Charlie, above – you do faithfully create that majestic feeling. I like the way these mountains rest on one another.

    • Thank you, Lynn…the mountains did all of the hard work…I just happen to be out there admiring them and occasionally remember to take a photo or two so I can bring them home with me. 🙂

  11. Yes indeed, small. But what an amazing place that would be to ride a horse!

    April 22, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    • It’s an amazing place to walk and run as well! Nice wide trails with plenty of little and big hills…and, of course, the spectacular view. 🙂
