Today is Pony Express Day! It was 157 years ago today that the Pony Express began it's short but glorious history. Did you know that there is still a USPS-sanctioned Pony Express currently operating in Arizona?

Hashknife Pony Express

The Hashknife Pony Express has run a 200 mile route from Holbrook to Scottsdale for a few days every winter. The week-long celebration of the historic mail service is full of fun activities, including a parade, luncheons, breakfasts as well as the run.
