Looking South across the place in the early morning the day of branding.  It was a peaceful sight.  The corral we brand in is towards the center of the picture but unless you know where it is, you can't see it.  Taken 5/19/2007.

Looking North down Sarpy Creek.  Right at the very north edge of my place there is water in the creek sometimes.  As wet as it is this year there is a lot of water there.  I haven't seen this in quite a few years.  Taken 5/15/2007.

The cattle streaming in towards the corral during my branding on Saturday.  It made for quite a beautiful sight.  The only problem was that the 8 wrestlers I hired failed to show up so the crew was a little short.  We got them done though.  Taken 5/19/2007.

It is amazing how much more contented the cattle are this year than they were last year.  All they did last year was wander around the pastures looking for better grass.  This year the grass is just fine and they like it.  Amazing what green grass can do.  Taken 5/15/2007.

Pretty picture in and of itself, but if you really look in the grass in the middle of the picture you can see some Sharptail Grouse doing their mating dance.  Taken 5/4/2007.

This really caught my eye the other day.  The blue sky, billowing clouds and green grass really gave an idyllic scene.  Taken 4/24/2007.

East Fork of Tullock creek.  I haven't seen it consistently flow such a stream in a lot of years.  It's sure nice to see, how long it will last though is anybodies guess.  Not long enough for sure.  Taken 4/11/2007.

Here is a shot of the snow that won't leave.  Yesterday we got a couple of more inches and I see there is more on the ground this morning with another inch of snow in the forecast for today.  I am feeding in this area because it is very sandy and on a south facing slope.  Out on the level there is at least 6 inches to a foot of snow that has water entrained in it that won't go away.  Out away from this sandy area it is a muddy mess for all concerned.  Taken 4/4/2007.

The Bighorn Mountains in the distance with the snow still on them really caught my eye.  We might see some snow her closeup later in the week.  Preliminary forecasts are predicting up to 2 feet of snow in the area.  Taken 3/25/2007.

With the last of the snow melting off in the warm temperatures I thought it appropriate to post another snow scene.  Taken 2/17/2007.
