Wiens was meeting with essay contest winners later in the day, then heading to Browns Park for the drive through Moffat County on Saturday and Sunday.

Since 1962, the Sombrero Ranch west of Craig has herded hundreds of horses from their wintering area in Brown’s Park back to the ranch, covering some 62 miles in two days. The horse drive has evolved over the years, with the 2013 edition marking the 15th year in which the ranch has invited outsiders looking to enjoy a Western cowboy experience to share in the two-day event.
