An Awesome Equustrian Trip – How the West Was Run

In the Fall of 2011, together with German visitors, we traveled the NW and SW USA with our 2011 Equus.

Equus driving through Chandelier Tree – Redwoods CA

It was an awesome Equustrian Trip – about 8,000 km (see SW USA Trip at WWB’s Photo Gallery) – to see some absolutely beautiful country and the manifestations of creativity in architecture.

Later, I wrote a brief promotional account of this trip for OpenRoad Hyundai (Richmond, BC):
