4H Fundraiser with Brenn Hill- by Dace Starkweather

We had a gorgeous weekend for our 4-H fund raiser ride with country musician, Brenn Hill. The temps have been hanging out in the 70’s and the aspen leaves have hung on during our Indian summer. We had a blast as Jo and I took out a crew of local folks out for three hours horseback, along with Brenn. We meandered up past the aspen shelf on the Nature Trail, around Hinman Lake and then out to the Cliffs to kick back and check out views of the Agnes’ in their aspen splendor. On the way home coming down through Coulton Canyon, we saw a robust buck with enormous antlers checking us out from within the shadows of some blue spruce. It was fun to get to know some of our Routt County neighbors.

Once we returned to the lodge, Pat had an awesome lunch for us down on the patio. After eating, Brenn played a personal concert for everyone in the Great Room. He’s a talented musician whose soothing voice is able to capture the life of the cowboy through the poetic imagery of his words. It’s been fun to get to befriend Brenn and Casey over the last couple of years. We saddled up on Sunday morning and went out to look for some strays. (Bruce, if you’re reading this, we didn’t find anything, but we saw some gorgeous country!!) If you want to check out any of Brenn’s music, head over to www.brennhill.com Happy Trails! –Dace
