I signed up with my 18 year old niece as she just graduated and I wanted her to have a memorable milestone before college. The trip was truly amazing and started with a gunfight in Doyle then off to the first campsite. We stayed in our bedrolls and shared a tent. After pitching our tents we checked out the horses and rode a bit. Saw three rattlesnakes that appeared non-threatening..I was assigned Blaze, a horse that had spirit and stepped out. Blaze I later discovered was a real cow horse and enjoyed nipping the tails of slow steers.....perfect. Jett however was a bit on the slow side. We were assigned to Teal Team and bonded with our teammates during the cow-boy and cow-chip olympics.
Our evenings were spent out under the moonlight and stars..Nv has beautiful sunsets and we wern't dissapointed. Real roughing it camping and pack up your own stuff. Dont overpack and if your afraid of getting dirty and dusty dont come. Lots of traveling toilets and a portable washing sink. The food was gourmet western style and abundant..Home made dutch oven biscuits and healthy option for those health minded. The traveling saloon was also a high point after a long day on the dusty trail. Wranglers were knowledgable and entertaining. My niece learned the value of tent ettiquette. " The tent gets packed up before breakfast and cleaned before dinner"..
Elizabeth wrote and recited a poem she wrote about the west during talent night .
The next day we rode our last last ride into the Reno Rodeo stadium...we were both a bit sad as we would both miss Blaze, Jett and those cattle calls.
