Home, Home on the Range

We had a lot of traffic this morning, I think partly because folks thought they could take our rural road and avoid the single lane escort through the fire zone on Hwy 395.

This is the cattle guard and the cows are just doing what they're supposed to do, where they're supposed to do it. They're crossing the road.

This is the pile of sand that the county roads department has deposited for the super icy days of winter. We have always assumed that the sand has salt in it, because we see cows browsing at from time to time. You can see by the dust that my photography made them nervous.




And as you can see, even cows have teenagers.

It's nice to see the photos from your side of the mountain. I have a home in Greenville, which is in the Indian Valley, and we've been covered in smoke and ask from the Antelope Complex fire. My husband and I live on our sailboat in Sausalito during the week and go home on the weekends, so as you can imagine, I've been keeping a watch on what's been happening there through yubanet.org and kolotv.com.

It makes me feel better seeing that there's not too much smoke!

That last photo is terrific! I always enjoy your photos -- your part of the country is just so different from anywhere I've lived. Thanks for sharing!
