Those who wish will have the opportunity to help groom some of the animals.Dinner: At the ranchEvening: This evening, we'll walk out to a selected area where we'll be able to view the heavens just as the early Native American residents of this desert setting did; far away from city lights, the stars, moon, and planets all stand out.
Adults and children will have an opportunity to view the magnificence through telescopes as well as binoculars (we'd encourage folks to bring some; even inexpensive ones make viewing more pleasurable). A local expert will tell us about what we're seeing, how and when it's best to look for certain stars and planets, and how to expand the experience if we choose to do so after returning home.Lodging: White Stallion RanchMeals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We can try our hand at creating a simple piece of art using water colors and ink; all materials are provided for us, and we'll have a nice souvenir to take home! Even those who've never tried drawing or painting can succeed in producing something that will bring back fond memories of the lovely scenery at White Stallion Ranch!Dinner: At the ranchEvening: After dinner, we'll gather at the bonfire ring, where we'll be entertained by a a talented cowboy singer.
