I found myself, once again, on a saddle riding a horse. But this time, I was riding through Mt. Zirkel Wilderness area near Steamboat, CO on an American Quarter horse. The trail was beautiful, full of birch trees with mountain views as far as the eyes could see. It was silent and peaceful and I felt that I could ride forever. I was guided by Ray, the owner of Del's Triangle 3 Ranch, a true-to-the-bone cowboy, and wonderful storyteller.
