“My ancestors did this, and it’s just so neat to understand their way of life and what they went through to get here,” she said. “I really appreciate what they went through, and to have a little bit of understanding of how that took place is really fantastic.”
Harris said traveling across the backcountry at horse and wagon pace grants unique and moving chances to bond with people with the same passion for horses, mules, livestock and other traditional ways of life.
“It’s really hard to describe the phenomenal experience of meeting people at 4-miles-per-hour and the friendships you make,” she said, her voice cracking. “I’m so grateful; it’s been a godsend to my life. It’s given me something to look forward to and be apart of. I’d rather be here than home any day of the week. I love it, and I cry when I go home.”
