Ride with the OST Trek riders
from Los Angeles, CA to Santa Fe, New Mexico
Moab dates: August 27th to 30th, 2015

The Old Spanish Trail ("OST") riders (Richard, Jim, Otis & Rod)
and their trusty animals, Toquima, Floyd, Chico and Sadie
were in the Moab area on August 27-30 on their "Trek" from
Los Angeles, CA to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
They have recreated and ridden the OST as much as possible.
They will arrive in Santa Fe and attend the "Three Trails Conference"
that starts on September 17, 2015.

This is a recreation of the Old Spanish Trail route used in
the early 1800's from L.A. CA to Sante Fe New Mexico.
Richard, Jim, Otis and Rod took on the task of putting this
together and doing the ride. It has been 3 years in the planning.
The CanyonLands BCH hosted the Trek riders while in the Moab area.



I especially want to thank them for allowing me to join the ride
through the Moab area. Jim had brought two mules, Chico and Sadie.
I was able to ride Sadie for the three days that they rode the Moab area.
