Taking the Easy Road
This current part of the trail is proving to be one of the easier sections. We've definitely moved out of the more desert-like regions of Arizona and into the higher and greener elevations of the northern part of the state. We have trees and grass and wide-open stretches of trail (and not rocky like some of the earlier sections!). We even stopped for lunch at a nice grazing spot by some water, so the horses were really enjoying this day's ride.
