More from this Series

Travel with Equitrekking from Northeastern Arizona down to the border of Mexico, to explore the diversity of this southwestern state along with Emmy nominated television host Darley Newman. Down by the border of Mexico, Darley rides at a 300-year-old hacienda style ranch in the high Sonoran desert with a real cowboy guide. On a ride to the highest peak in the area, locals introduce us to views of the rolling hills of Mexico. Outside of Phoenix, Darley saddles up to ride old gold mining routes and pan for gold with a modern day prospector in the Bradshaw Mountains. Next, Darley takes off from a horse friendly bed and breakfast into the town of Cave Creek. This town is unique, as you can ride your horse instead of driving a car into town. Darley and her local friends tie up their horses to a hitching post at a cowboy hangout for lunch, where Darley learns to cook a peach cobbler, Dutch oven style. Finally, Equitrekking's host leads viewers through snow covered Canyon de Chelly with Navajo guide Lee Bigwater, taking in the petroglyphs and cliff dwellings left by the Ancient Puebloans, also known as the Anasazi.
