Horses along the Verde River
Horses browse in the Verde River on the Fort McDowell Indian Reservation near Needle Rock. I was so surprised to see horses as I explored along the banks of the river. I could see their droppings but didn't put it together until they were in sight. I walked up to a small opening in the vegetation along the bank and there they were. It was pretty special watching them graze away on whatever was on the shallow bottom.
