I recently took the North Rim to Ranch ride and I can't tell you what an adventure it was to me. The experience was amazing and the wranglers and staff really showed me something to remember for the rest of my life.The horses were almost as impressive as the views... and the hospitality shown to us at the home ranch was an wonderful, unexpected treat. Thank-you!
Happy trails to all of you who work so hard so tourists like me can see things they'd never see otherwise
