Pryor Moutain- Day 2

The next day, my dad and I woke up early enough for there to still be pink in the sky.

Penn's Cabin, originally built by a cowboy, we used it as a wind break for our tent

Cloud and Feldspar

This filly had just been running around, I can only imagine her wondering why no one would playing with her.

These next two pictures demonstrate some advice for band stallions. Don’t call out before trying to get a mare, the most response you will get is the other stallion snaking his band away.

As we wathed this drama, Diamond/ Teton’s band moved in, led by Cloud’s m0m Phoenix.

Trying to find cell coverage, my dad and I moved to a higher portion of the range. There we saw a couple more bands.

After we determined that we didn’t have cell coverage, we went back to the middle of the range, where Cloud’s band was.

After that, the peace of the mountaintop was broken by a plane circling so low it spooked horses.

After all the horses ran past us, we stopped watching them for a while so they could settle down. Once we saw Bolder’s band across the road from our campsite, we went back to look at horses.

After a full day on the mountain, my dad and I settled in to spend one last night on the mountain.

    You got some great shots! If you have any questions on names, please let me know!

    • Thanks. Right now I am unsure of the horses the bands of Flint, Diamond, Chance, and Lakota. If I can think of anything else, I’ll let you know.
