Flagstaff, AZ to C O Bar Ranch & more
…and the earth sprinkled dust over much of our meals- but is that just a reminder of where we are?…ahhh, mother earth, you are cookin again!…I arrived at the Campground to continue the Trek with the Team. Immediately introduced and given directions to the next location…follow us!…and I did…to the middle of the C O Bar Ranch where there was no water, not much shade and a lot of dust blowing. There was however, an incredible meeting of many groups coming together to discuss the land. Coconino District Ranger Gene Waldrip, National Park Service Rep Kim Watson, and State Game and Fish Rep Rick Miller and Ranch Manager Billy Cordasco, met us at our camp on the CO Ranch, one of the Babbitt Ranches,. They all agree that they want to work together. They all agree that they want to help each other. They all agree that sometimes their hands are tied. This is a sometimes difficult area since it is the checkerboard= public, private, public, private area. It is a bit hard to just stop the horse, truck or car and say “that’s not my district” and ignore the area. What to do? We stayed for many days and baked in the sun. Chap stick was a needed item. Hats and sunglasses were a must…white shirts turned to tan. This is the area where the Trekers climbed over and under to only step on Public Lands. And they succeeded! And they were satisfied.
