We have attended the wild pony auction for the last two years and have really enjoyed watching the action. I encourage you to plan to attend just once. The area hiking is great, too!

My son and I camped for two nights at the Highlands. On the first night, a large cow came and actually ate some of the hot coals from from our fire! Of course, this turned into a long night of hearing this large, horned cow...More
