The Cattle Drive

Free Range Bull

Cows everywhere, cows on the trail, cows in the parking lot and cows in the ditch… And as me and Big Dog got out of the truck, cows on their way to the highway where the local ignoramuses like to drive about 100 mph on the curvy mountain road. Normally I have no interest in helping out the welfare ranchers that let their cows crap up public lands but I really didn’t want the cows to get hurt so it looked like a mini cattle drive was going to be in order. Me and big dog circled around and headed the wayward ungulates off at the pass. A couple hee yahs later and the semi brainless critters were back behind their fence and out of danger 🙂

Not much else to report from today… the mountain view was ordinary and we didn’t see any other photo worthy critters. However it must be spring, the prairie dogs are out of hibernation, which caught the big dog’s attention! Now I just have to figure out how to get my shoulder back in socket 😦

One piece of excitement… according to the USPS tracking information, my B+W Circular Polarizer is supposed to be waiting for me at the post office even as we speak, so to speak 🙂

Free Range Cattle

Free Range Cattle in the Rockies

Not a fan of free range cattle. They make a mess out of public land and get our wolves killed and I think if the ranchers want to have cattle they should have their own land to put them on. But… on this day the cattle made a pretty nice picture. My bull was back but today he paid no attention to me and the big dog at all.

Also saw a nice herd of deer up on the top of the mountain and I thought this one was especially cute 🙂 Christmas is closing in fast, but up here in the mountains life goes on unchanged. The animals don’t seem to know there is holiday coming and I imagine the day will pretty much come and go without my notice as well.
