Photo Friday: Appreciating The Wild Horse Sanctuary

I spent last weekend at the Wild Horse Sanctuary, a refuge for wild horses and burros near Lassen National Park in Northern California. Dianne Nelson has run the sanctuary as a non-profit for the past 30 years and uses weekend rides and pack trips to fund the program—most funds go towards feeding the +/- 300 wild horses that live there.

I have to admit that the experience I thought I would have over my three days there was not reality—I imagined safari-style tracking in search of horses that would be galloping through an open field.
