Almost three weeks ago, I was in the basin. Almost on the eve of returning, here are some photos from that last trip to whet your apetite – and mine!
Mona and Kootenai and their dashing beau were right by Filly Peak – again.
The dashing beau.
Looking sort of east-northeast from the north side of Filly Peak and the road.
Cinch and Bruiser came up to the north country to have a chat with the bachelor 3 – Aspen, Chrome and Hook – and possibly to get some water from the last pond on the place (which is now dry).
Cheeky boys: Chrome, Hook and Aspen
Aspen and Hook
From beyond the pond – which is unseen in the foreground – looking westward toward the heart of the basin. Hollywood’s band – with Poco and Roach – are at left, and Steeldust’s are at right. They’ve left the pond and are heading back toward the road and the open areas to graze. You can see the doubletrack that leads from the road to the pond.
Storm-chaser has mostly shed into manly grey. That’s Comanche at left.
On the way home, the spotted ponies were visible from the county road. Visible above are all the critters save the two bay solids: Copper and Mesa
Reya (2) and Spook (1) and Copper in the background.
Ty of the unknown color.
Can’t wait to get back.
