I've been working all weekend so am way behind, but here's a photo of some recent snow we got, with pregnant heifers (cows giving birth for the first time) in the lower middle of the photo. The line of trees in the middle of the photo is a creek that comes out of the mountains. I love the foothills--they always produce the best shadows, and it's a treat to see them and the mountain above covered with snow.
Good luck to everyone who is covered with snow, some of the totals I've been hearing are incredible.
Hi! I'm Gretchen, an ecologist, rancher's wife, mother, writer, and dreamer. I've lived and worked in three of the four North American deserts and visited the fourth. This blog is about what it's like to live in the rural high desert on a ranch, spending lots of time outdoors with kids, and our journey to live more sustainably.
