  The fact that it’s technically not quite spring didn’t stop members of the Back Country Horseman of Idaho from celebrating what we hope is the end of one of the longest cold snaps in this part of the country.  Approximately 20 riders saddled up for a beautiful, sunny ride on the trails in Celebration Park: Idaho’s first, and only, archeological park. http://www.canyonco.org/ImportedFiles/Parks,-Rec,-WWays/Celebration-Park-Brochure.aspx

  Celebration Park is an excellent early season ride. Regardless of the weather, the terrain is usually safe and easy on stock, many of which are being saddled for the first time since late fall. Members broke into several smaller groups to make the loop from the parks entrance to Halverson Lakes and back along the Snake River.

  Horsemen and women were not the only folks enjoying a weekend in the park. We met several hikers, explorers, campers and fishermen scattered along the 10 mile loop. Each may have been celebrating in their own way, but most had one thing in common, a cheerful attitude and smile that extended from ear to ear. I guess the Back Country Horsemen aren’t the only folks happy to see the end of broken pipes, frozen spigots and iced over stock tanks for another season. Celebration Park Fun Ride
