Where Shall We Go?

This winter weather is getting kind of old. Are you itching to travel some place warmer like I am?

I thought it would be fun to take a tour through some of the store listings in the Longears Mall, and see what great places I could find to visit on my next vacation trip!

So to start my journey, I clicked on the "Stores & Classifieds" | "Stores" menu.

There are quite a few Store categories to choose from, but for now I think I'll check out the "Tours & Travel" section.

The "Tours & Travel" category lists quite a number of great longears related places from all over the world that you can visit while on your next vacation trip. Here are just a few of them:

One place that caught my eye is Molokai Mule Ride, Inc. If you get a chance to go to Hawaii, it looks like it would be well worth your time to visit Kalaupapa National Historical Park and take their guided mule tour. On the tour you will ride down the spectacular sea cliffs on the northern coast of the island of Molokai. Then you can tour the site of the leper colony that was served by Father Damien many years ago. It sounds like this tour is filled with beautiful scenery and fascinating history. Even if you never get to go to Hawaii, you might still enjoy visiting their photo album.

Another place I'd like to go someday is down into the Grand Canyon on mule back. You can find out more about the Grand Canyon and their mule rides at their website. I imagine they don't have very many rides going this time of year, but during the summer time they probably have quite a few.

And if you are looking for something a little less strenuous, you might enjoy spending your vacation time at Mule Power Farms. I'm sure it is a little warmer in sunny southern Arizona, and it looks like they have some beautiful areas to ride as well as a great place to stay.

So next time you are planning a vacation, you should look through the listings in our "Tours & Travel" directory and see if there are any places you'd like to visit along the way.

Oh, by the way, if you know of any great places to go trail riding, we'd love to have you join our favorite trail rides discussion on the Longears Mall Forums. Several of us have shared information about neat trails in our areas. Please come join us, and tell us about your favorite places to go riding!
