WHERE'S THE BEEF?
The search began today for the mountain cows, Yes, they are in there somewhere.
We have a lot of rugged country to cover, and several cows to find that are really good at hiding.
I made Dave stop for a couple of pictures, His horse, Josie was happy to get a rest.
The elk were bugling. They were really making a lot of noise. It was pretty cool. We got close to this bull elk. He watched us ride from the other ridge. Even when we got just below him he stayed there for quite a while before slowly getting up an walking away.
This is a log that the old sheepherders made into a salt trough for their sheep.
Hey look, cows. Then we followed them down.. and up, and down and.... you get it.
We met up with the other cowboys. They had kicked other cows down a couple other canyons before running into us. So we all followed the cows down a steep and overgrown canyon. The clouds were building. I was pretty sure we were going to get wet.
Yes, it rained a little. But it was the lightning that I didn't like.
Finally off the mountain and into the pasture. Well, at least some of them. There are more hiding up there. We will continue the search.

Wish i could have been there to help you all, someone had a lot of different dogs, rough country, lightening would scare me too, but still get antsy to do the cow work but am sure I would get tired, very out of shape, but surely do miss it! Great pics. salt thingie was interesting, such a good job you do.

Helped Uhaldes find all but one. Pretty good considering that they are all mixed in with Pescio's cattle. Pretty good week.
