Day of the Dead in Mexico

Rancho Las Cascadas- The Day of the Dead Celebration in Mexico

The Day of the Dead celebration at Rancho Las Cascadas, is an absolutely wonderful experience.  It was truly special to be able to participate in such a rich and beautiful Mexican tradition.

On October 31st, guests will make offerings to their deceased loved ones on an alter decorated in marigolds. A small jar of water was placed by each photograph because souls are thirsty after their long journey. Another contained salt, representing the continuance of life.  And a third was filled with the favorite drink of each loved one.  On November 1st, a candle was lit by each photo to welcome the spirits to the altar.  Over the course of three days, other offerings were also added, like little candies and pan de muerto. The spirits cannot eat or drink what is at the altar. Instead, they absorb the aroma and energy of the food, which nourishes their spirits.

On October 31st, guests make offerings to their deceased loved ones on an alter decorated in marigolds.

The Rancho serves a six-course meal on November 1st in memory of all our loved ones who have died.

On November 2nd the horses are decorated with marigolds to celebrate. And there's more!

Hondoo riding Utah

Hondoo Rivers & Trails- Camp or Ride Inn-to-Inn through a Utah National Park! Mention "Equitrekking" and receive $100.00 off

Enjoy a trail riding vacation in Utah’s red rock canyonlands surrounding Capitol Reef National Park! Mention "Equitrekking" to get $100 off.

Utah’s canyonlands were the last explored region in the continental United States. Bounded by the Grand Canyon on the south and the Uintah Basin on the north, this New England sized landform is often referred to as the Canyonlands, Canyon Country or 4-Corners Area. It is the largest tract of unspoiled territory in the lower forty-eight and is the home of more formally designated parks, monuments, conservation and wilderness areas than you can shake a stick at. Modern writers have mythologized this landscape as the “Great Back-of-Beyond” and “The Place Nobody Knew”.

Pat Kearney along with her husband Gary George of Hondoo Rivers & Trails have been exploring Utah on horseback for over 40 years. She takes riders on multi-day camping and inn to inn rides through some of Utah’s most stunning national parks and areas for viewing wildlife and wild horses--- like Capitol Reef National Park. Hondoo’s trips focus on scenic and distinctive landforms west of the Colorado River.

Hondoo outfits a full schedule of multi-day horseback riding vacations featuring camping or inn lodging. They can also arrange custom day or multi-day backcountry trips which afford you the opportunity to travel Utah by vehicle, horse, raft, or/and foot.
