Women of the Cerbats

I am feeling energized by my recent trip to the Cerbat mountains of northwest Arizona. I got some great shots of wild horses and connected with some people who keep the soul of that special place alive.

Catherine Ritlaw is a tireless savior of wild horses and burros that have no place left to go. She takes in the wounded, abused and crippled and rehabilitates them. She feeds them. She makes no money and does it on donations. Her Jeras animal sanctuary is located at the base of the Cerbat Mountains, offering a superb view of the highest peaks.

She had a covered face while I was there. She wears a respirator while people are near. She has auto-immune diseases that knock her down, but not out. She is a survivor and what my dad called a gutsy go-getter.
