The Grass March Cowboy Express rode past the capitol grounds in Carson City on Monday morning, and several riders stopped in Fallon later in the day on their way to Winnemucca.

The express began last week in California, and organizers hope to be in Washington D.C. by Oct. 16. The Grass March Cowboy Express trip is a transcontinental cowboy express to deliver petitions in Washington, D.C., highlighting land mismanagement and abuse of power by the federal agencies, specifically the Bureau of Land Management.

The trip is a 2,800-mile journey and includes stops and rallies in many cities. The volunteers are riding in five-mile increments. Their journey can be followed on FaceBook and on their website.
