Today would be a special day for me as Steve was going to spend the whole day with me! After breakfast we were going to the gun range and then we were going to go to Robber’s Roost on a trail ride.
This was the set up for the rifle shooting. The rifle was placed on the little bean bag for stability.
Here is Steve getting instructions on how to shoot at the fake prairie dogs.
Next it was my turn.
Steve is getting instructions on the shot gun.
Here is Steve shooting at the targets with the shot gun. As my shoulders couldn’t lift the shot gun, only Steve did this.
My turn with the long guns. We didn’t shoot at the closer targets with these long guns. The closer targets were used with the pistols.
Next is was Steve’s turn to shoot the long range rifle.
Here is a better view of the targets. I think they got painted every night.
These are the types of guns that were available, and the corresponding ammunition.
I enjoyed using the pistol. It is much lighter than the other weapons! Our first year the instructor let my use his personal pistol. It had a laser which made it a lot easier for me to aim at the target. I still did very well with the pistol.
Here we are all done with our shooting lessons.
It was nice having lunch with Steve. Usually I am on my own.
Cookies for dessert!
Here I am all saddled up and ready to ride with Steve. Of course you wouldn’t know if this picture was taken after our ride and I was using the fence to hold my self up!
Here is our guide retelling the story of how this lookout got it’s name. I think any high point gets the name of Robber’s Roost out in the west!
The view from the top of Robber’s Roost is tremendous!
Trying to get the horses to poses for a picture can be difficult!
Here are some nice pictures of Steve and I coming down the mountain.
Dinner tonight was Creekside. There was a big barbecue. It was much different than previous nights as the weekend crowd included a lot of families. We had been spoiled with the ranch being mostly adults only the previous days.
Nevertheless we had a fun time. We met a couple from Denver. They had very exotic accents. Hopefully I will find out tomorrow where they are from!
Do you think Steve should grow his beard back?
Do you think I will find out more about the couple we had dinner with?
Do you have a normal accent or an exotic accent?
What do you think makes an accent exotic?
