Where in the World?

Rick and I have just returned from a cattle show. Yes, Alex stayed at the ranch and did all the work all by himself.  Here are a couple of pictures from our trip. This was the parking lot of the hotel, as you can see it snowed – actually it snowed twice, this was the first time. At least 4-5 inches and a cold wind blowing. Brrr!

The cattle pens – and the people taking care of the cattle – were outside. Most people had set up some kind of tent or shelter and had portable heaters.

Any guesses where we went?

Winter Sunshine

After days of rain – over 7 inches in the last 3 days – the sunshine was a welcome sight.  Everyone was ready for some dry weather. Both human . . .

. . . and bovine.

The storm left snow in the mountains around us. This is Diobsud Peak, one of my favorite views from the ranch.

??????????????????????

All the mountains around us are dusted with snow.

While the cattle are eating their hay, the dogs were enjoying the sunshine.

Molly seems especially comfortable sunbathing.

Snow on the mountains to the east of the ranch.

Late in the afternoon the fog starts to roll in.

Hopefully the weatherman is right and we will get a few more days of sunshine before the next storm rolls in.
