Wild Horses

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer occasionally burps up an interesting, offbeat article, such as this one about wild horses on the Yakama Indian Reservation, written by the P-I's horse racing handicapper (I guess that's how you become a follower of the Sport of Kings -- you have a grandfather who says things like "Cayuses everywhere -- you know, mustangs, boy!")

The Yakama Reservation is just south of the town of Yakima. About 5 or so years ago, the tribe decided that the spelling "Yakama" was closer to the original, and changed it, but the town did not follow suit.

If you are driving on I-90 in Eastern Washington, just east of the bridge over the Columbia River at Vantage, there is a sculpture called Grandfather Cuts Loose the Ponies, which you can hike up to from a rest stop. Worth the climb if you are in the area.
