    My husband and I went on the guided horse back trail for our anniversary, our tour guide Thomas was AMAZING. He got as all set up and we started the ride, we walked through some of the most breath taking views. Walked through oak creek and up to a winery. And during the ride he would tell us about the land and history. We'll definitely be back again!
