Driving Part XI

Day 11 – June 27, 2010

Unfortunately, my camera has taken all of the abuse it can handle today and can no longer take very good pictures, so I am not able to show you some of the most scenic pictures of the entire drive.

Here’s a look back at where we’ve been:

Day 6

Heading the cattle down the "driveway." Looks a little different then most of your driveways, huh?

Day 7

The cattle get driven through the “counting gate” which is near the US Forest boundary. Grazing allotments are for certain numbers of cattle, so we're very accurate in our counts to comply.

Day 8

I do on ranch computer business while we herd cattle today.

Day 10

The cattle on the Upper Green River cattle drive mingle with campers in the sagebrush prairies of Sublette County, Wyo.

Our herd of cattle made it to their summer pasture today.  It was a long trip, but the cows did well.  We moved them up into an area we call the Northwest Pasture, one of four pastures these cattle will be rotated through during the summer.  They can relax now, enjoy the cool air and eat and get fat.  They will have to keep an eye out for wolves though.  There are not so many bears in this area, but the wolves frequent it often.
