Moment of nature. Cold Creek Nevada. Horses.
From your reflections:
To my surprise as I turned onto the road of Cold Creek I seen nothing but desert until all of a sudden I noticed 2 horses just walking down the road. I stopped the car in excitement and the horses started walking toward me. Come to find out you aren’t suppose to feed them, but people do which leads them near the road and a little curious to see what humans are up to. Along the road I would continue to pass a few different herds, all which were not too scared I was there and allowed be to be in their midst taking photos.
