The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Hunewill Guest Ranch

Distance: 365 miles one-way. The heifers are acting surly, but my horse pushes forward. My young crew of 10 or so cowpunchers encircles about 30 head of cattle on a wide pasture in the shadow of a sawtooth mountain just west of Bridgeport. Our horses slowly lead the cattle toward a gate at the far end of the field. "Move on," I yell, as I nudge my mount with the heel of my boot. "Heeeaaah!" For a moment, I think I'm a cow-herding, range-riding, genuine cowboy. -- Hugo Martín
