Handsome Paint in the Basin

This beautiful paint, named Lennon, was the favorite for August 2018, by the National Park Foundation’s Share the Experience. This photo won a two-night stay in Napa and a free National Park Pass. The contest is open to anyone and you can upload up to 15 photos per month, free.

This is your destination if you would like to see wild horses in their natural environment.   My trip was made in May. Springtime is the best time to visit. The horses were frolicking, playing and of course fighting.  Stay close to your vehicle as they are unpredictable.   You might want to take binoculars, camera, and a full tank of gas.  The Friendly General Store in Maybell is a great place to stop for snacks before driving into the basin.
