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.
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 📷
