At the Colorado Cattle Company in Northern Colorado, Equitrekking host Darley Newman participates in "Dream Week," learning to ride championship cutting horses with expert Teddy Johnson. In Southern Colorado, Darley rides up to over 12,000 feet in San Juan National Forest with native Anne Rapp. The ride to Engineer Mountain takes Darley through alpine meadows, steep mountain passes and open expanses where views reach all the way to New Mexico. Darley and Anne survive the changes in weather that come with high altitudes, including a hailstorm, before heading back down the mountain. At Wilderness Trails Ranch, a family-oriented dude ranch, Darley trail rides to Vallecito Lake and learns more techniques for working cattle. Finally, Darley rides the rails and experiences the past on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
