"Was impressed with the awesome expansive beauty of this area. Got another perspective of it all by seeing it on horseback. Going up high one day and then over to the Nenana the next were 2 totally different experiences. I will also remember Whitey's strength and spirit and also his hoofprint on my foot. It was all great." - Bob and Mary - Anchorage, AK

"I arrived green; left black and blue; and had a wonderful time. It's all been said in the previous pages - Your warmth, the food, wonderful horses - my memories: The only place I could have caught a fish! Picking blueberries on the alpine tundra! A hot sauna at the end of a raw day! Bobby quoting 'Lonesome Dove'! Most of all thanks for sharing your knowledge of horses and the country! And keep Pony content for me, hope he learns the ropes and gets to stay in equine paradise" - Deb and Christopher - Brookline, MA

I can't figure out if they're making it difficult to leave or impossible not to come back. I struggle with wanting to tell everyone I know and telling no one of this magic place, so we can keep it selfishly for our own." - Fran
