Desert Trot

The Red Desert of southwestern Wyoming is a vast, featureless desert, devoid of features, except the miles upon endless miles of desert sage. If you stand on top of a low rise you can see for something close to forever, if not a little farther, and you won’t see much. This doesn’t mean that the Red Desert is completely empty, however. It actually teams with life, as most deserts do. And sometimes, if you are lucky, you can see some of the residents trot on by.

Such as this fine fellow. This stallion is trotting alongside me as I made this photograph. He is a true wild horse in every sense of the word. He, and his band, fend for themselves, without the want or need for human intervention. For generations, wild horses have lived comfortably out in the desert, and they know the life and true meaning of freedom.

As he continued his trot I pondered his fate and future. Hopefully, we continue to let the horses be out there, and continue to let them lead their lives.

The stallion continued his trot on his never-ending journey.
