09/16/2014 Trip Notes: During their visit from Lake Tahoe, I took my sister Bonnie and her husband Paul (Fig. 02), out to the town of Cold Creek (Fig. 01) to photograph the wild horses. The view in (Fig. 01) was taken from the north edge of town looking back down towards the Sheep Mountain Range and the desert flats that were once part of the governments’ atomic testing range. Even though rain had been predicted, it turned out to be a beautiful day and we got to see more than 25 horses during the time we spent there. Though both are into photography, Paul is now into shooting movie videos and took a lot of footage. They couldn’t believe how many horses we saw roaming the open desert and how tame they were. As you can see from just the handful of pictures below (Figs. 03 thru 07) out of the dozens that I took on today’s visit, we were presented with a wide variety of horses, ranging from beautiful chestnut brown stallions (Figs. 03 & 06), grey mares (Figs. 04 & 05), Pintos (Fig 97), to a palomino (Fig. 08).
