Dead Horse Ranch State Park, Arizona continued

Our second day at Dead Horse we went for a ride on a couple of live horse through the 400 acre park.  Bill, a 77 year old cowboy that has been riding horses most of his life was our trail guide.  He worked the Dead Horse ranch in his younger days when it was privately owned.  He was very entertaining sharing numerous stories of his years riding horses, driving wagons, ranching, and dealing with mules (he doesn’t much like mules).   The trail ride was especially exciting when crossing the fast running creeks and for a moment I thought me and my horse were going to end up floating downstream, but we made it safely to the other side.  Whew!
