Notes:  A little buggy in spots but not terrible. We rode in the evening to avoid the heat of the day. Left the dogs at home thinking we might long trot/lope but ended up at a good brisk walk most of the way. The dogs would have been fine.

The girls made up stories as if they were transported to 1867. One was an orphan riding the trail of revenge in search of outlaws who killed her family. Two fur trappers turned in their snares for masks and took to robbing banks. I guess by 1867 the fur trade had dwindled. The other, a former pony express rider turned gambler after decommission of the Pony Express in 1861.

There really is something about the WRT that sparks the imagination.
