Salt River Wild Horses
Photographer: Jill Irvin
Location: Salt River, Arizona
We were returning to our car after a short hike along the Salt River in Arizona, when we heard a loud snort. We looked across the parking lot and saw a wild stallion eyeing us through the trees. He watched us for a few minutes, then walked into a clearing directly in front of us and took a rather long and noisy dust bath. After sending dirt in all directions he lingered for a moment, his ears glowing in the afternoon sun then climbed heavily to his feet. With a flick of his tail, he disappeared back into the brush.
