Story:
Seven riders met at the Whitehouse in Marsing, Idaho and trailered to the Succor Creek and Fisherman Roads intersection in Oregon. Mounting up we proceeded to the Wildhorse Basin overlooking Lake Owyhee.

After a short time viewing the scenery around Lake Owyhee and watching two F-15s flying low over the lake and up the canyons, we backtracked and headed for the Holcomb Place on Lake Owyhee. Before starting downhill, the lead riders spotted six mustangs going uphill and around a butte.

Arriving at the beach on the shore of Lake Owyhee, we paused for lunch. On the way out photographs of the colorful, sculpted cliffs in Road Canyon were taken. We then traveled to an overlook to view the scenery and locate a geocache.

Continuing on the Rookie Creek Road five more mustangs were sighted. Three of them posed for photographs in the distance.

Near the waterhole at Board Corral Gulch, a lone pinto mustang stallion was photographed and videoed. His left ear was mangled probably from a squabble with another stallion.

We stopped at the Camp Kettle Creek Falls and found most of the ice on the falls was melted and there was a small water flow down the falls. There must of been a recent hatch of ladybugs on a clump of grass there and photos were taken.

We returned to our trailers on Camp Kettle Creek and then Succor Creek Roads.
