What happens when three women who have been blogging buddies for years finally all get together at the same time? Fun, hilarity, bad jokes, really bad jokes, hiking, a picnic with killer squirrels… and of course wonderful friendship.
You know me, I’m the Thelma of the bunch and Louise number one (she gets the #1 spot because I’ve known her longer, sorry Louise #2) is Ingrid of Livelaughrv.net Please go read her post of our day here. Louise #2 is Nancy of TwoTrailsoneroad.com and her post of our day is here.
We were going to hike together for two days but on day two, Nancy woke up feeling cruddy and had to bow out. So Ingrid and I took off in her little red truck and only missed our exit to the Apache Trail once because we were laughing so hard about something. Ingrid tried to kill me hiking that day… my story sticking to it will share that post later. (Love you, Ingrid ♥)
So they picked me up and off we went to find the wild horses of Tonto National Forest. After asking a few other people we came across while adventuring, we eventually came upon this woman painting one of the horses; she directed us to where they were.
This is the horse she was painting.
We got as close as we dared and it was amazing. I’ve never seen wild horses before let alone ones that were getting ready for their afternoon naps.
The recent rains and snow (there was still snow on some of the mountains when I was there causing many people to pull over on the sides of roads and even the highways to take photos of something that many said they had not seen in years and years) made for spectacular scenery along with the wildflowers beginning to bloom. There was even green grass to be seen in many places!
Coming back to Ohio where everything is still in it’s dormant phase was rough. I hope one day in the not too distant future that Thelma, Louise and Louise get to ride off into the sunset again… or something equally fun.
More about our hiking adventures coming soon. Teri 📷
Those are fat wild horses.
I guess they were filling up on all of the green grass.
The area they are in has seen a large amount of rain and snow run off. The desert here was filled with green grass and other yummies for the horses. Many people are remarking, just like you Tim, as to how well they are doing.
I haven’t seen that much soft green grass in months! No wonder those horses were sleepy 😉
It looks like a fun time. Cheers!
It really was. They led me on a wonderful wild hiking journey and I loved almost every moment of it – 🙂 🙂
Sounds like a fun adventure!
It was! Thanks
Fun times! And They were killer squirrels!
Fun times indeed but when I was almost eye to eye with that one squirrel – yikes!
Sounds like a wonderful trip and great escape. At least you came home alive, “Thelma”. 🙂
Thelma thanks you 😉
Beautiful animals. Sounds like fun.
It was a lot of fun and they were beautiful.
Oh dear, that’s the first time I hear about killer squirrels. We have these sweet brown squirrels running around in our garden, climbing the apple and plum trees and behaving very funny.
Wishing you a happy week

Oh these squirrels with their cute antics were just ninja lunch assassins in disguise!
It was such a fun time connecting and exploring together. And you loved “every” minute even when you got winded while I pushed/pulled you on that hike 😄
You just HAD to tell the world about me getting winded!!! But I got that second wind once we leveled out on the trail and I was raring to go 🙂
Yes you were, and you even enjoyed yourself. I’ll turn you into a hiker yet 🚶♀️📷🤗
You may have already but don’t let that out to the media just yet hahahaha 🙂
