Spring fever has hit. Dry roads. Warm weather. Tinges of green. After Vernon finished his feeding duties and we’d grabbed lunch, we were in the side by side for a Grand Tour.
We didn’t make it far. The mountain road is still slushy and drifted with snow, though the warmth of the sun was working on it quickly. We could see snow on the mountains everywhere, which is a very good sign. I just hope it is enough.
Back down to the bottom we went. We’d try our Mesa Pasture next. A little runoff from melting snow had gathered in the ponds, neither of which holds water for an extended period of time. It was nice to see the solar panels had made it through the winter.
Bravo was HOT. It took just a split second for him to find the last patch of snow.
He was watching something while eating snow… if you can blow up the photo, you might just see a critter in the middle of the snowbank on the right.
By the time I noticed them, they were going around the corner.
I saw two go around the corner… see it? I’ll help…
I captured one!
A scenic drive around the pasture and we headed back home. Vernon also wanted to check some of the reservoirs in the Badlands. We stopped for a bit at my house and gathered up two extra riders. Megan has been helping Brandon when she can, and taking her kids so they could go tag calves seemed a nice thing to do. Quinlan made quite the discovery on the trip as well, but that’s for another day!Find me here!
