my commute home in Illinois was never like this!

(I highly recommend click on the photos below to see them larger)


This is just one of the reasons I love where I live:






These photos are a good example of why the road about 10 miles north of town is called Wild Horse Pass...  today was a good day; there had to be at least 25 to 30 horses out there, right next to the highway in a dry riverbed. I watched them for about 20 minutes, took about 65 pictures- not very many of them turned out good, considering I was shooting west right into the sun- and even shot a couple minutes of video (once I remembered my camera shoots video, that is). 

Truthfully, I could have watched them for quite a while longer; hopefully I'll get another opportunity sometime soon.

WOW! That is amazing! Yeah, Illinois is NOTHING like that. ;)
Sunsets, horses, mountains - my commute scenery has NONE of that!

Lucky you - hugs!

Nice! I sometimes pass through while cycling and I always stop when I see horses running free.
