May in Stanley, Idaho is not to be missed! The mountains are still frosted with snowdrifts and the valley is empty of crowds and traffic. The weather can be cool but ultimately beautiful and the dark skies and storms that come through in the spring don’t tend to stick around long.
May is one of our favorite months of the year. May means that we can pack up our horses and gear from Cave Creek, Arizona and head back home to our little quiet town of Stanley. Since the roads are still mostly closed and the trails are typically still under snow, we take the month of May to ourselves to breathe in the mountain air and recharge our batteries before the season begins.
The phones have been ringing though and the calendar is already almost full. We are excited for another busy season of trail rides, pack trips and hunts. We are looking forward to seeing our returning guides and to introduce our new staff to this beautiful place. We have a great crew lined up and a few new horses to start working with this summer.
It’s still not too late to book a trail ride or overnight trip! Give us a call at 208-774-3591 to talk to us about the perfect mountain get-away.
I’ve been needin’ a little freedom
A little time for me
A little piece of
A little peace of mind and serenity
And when I see those snowy peaks
Through my horse’s ears
The road behind me
The one that finds me
Seems a little more clear
And I find I’m dreamin’ on a trail through yesterday
And I find my freedom on a horseback getaway
