And Miles To Go... said...

wow, I can see for miles and miles in those shots! Beautiful!

WOW acres upon acres of sunflowers. I thought I grew a lot of sunflowers when I had about a hundred.

Beth F said...

Oh man, it's been a few years since I've ridden. Beautiful shots.

BK said...

Coming here is always a breath of fresh air! It surely looks beautiful up there in high altitude. :)

Rose said...

Gorgeous, Kate! These could be picture postcards or part of a travel brochure--we don't have anything like this in the Midwest! I'm ready to saddle up and come for a visit...except I don't ride horses:)

Kate said...

Hi, Rose, I'll bet you'd enjoy riding my horsie. She's a sweetie pie...

Love that second photo, the horse and rider in the middle of all those flowers. Lovely.

Monica the Garden Faerie said...

Nice! Horses kind of scare me (they're so tall!) but lovely scenes!

Kate said...

Hey, M;
Yes they are tall... I need a step ladder to get on Bella. But, I think it might have been hard to hike through those flowers. At some points they were as high as the horse's tummy!

Melospiza said...

LOVE.

Titanium said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh... this makes me miss my horse terribly! Beautiful shots and stunning scenery; the flowers are so bright and carpet the landscape like nothing else.

dan said...

Gorgeous photos! I always love when the fields here below the mountains are covered in lupine.

Snowcatcher said...

Wow! Eye-popping gorgeous! Do they have a single track trail through there, too? :)

Kate said...

Oh, yes, biker babe! Plentiful single track trails. :D

Kate said...

Y'all need to come out for a horsie back ride next summer. Maybe we can do a wildflower blog convention! :D

Melanie said...

Amazing, looks like a lot of fun too.

Will said...

Those are wild sunflowers? Amazing.

Happy WW!

Shelle said...

wow this really is the wilderness, how beautiful...and your garden is looking gorgeous!

donna said...

Kate, hard to imagine that anyone will have a more impressive Wordless Wednesday post than yours.

Stunning, I'm left without words.

I ride in the North Carolina mountains and on the coast but I have never ridden in the high desert. Looks beautiful. Would love to give it a try.
