Driving – The Last Day, But Not the End

Day 12 – June 28, 2010

Since we pushed our herd of cattle into the Pastures yesterday, today we helped fellow rancher Albert Sommers and his crew push the tail end of the Mesa cows into the Mud Lake West pasture (not to be confused with “The Pastures” where we pushed cows yesterday, I know, I know, we just can’t keep it simple for you).

The ranchers and cattle make the last leg of the journey to summer grazing pasture.

This is a somewhat shorter drive than yesterday, but we still did not get the cows through the gate into Mud Lake West.  The cattle were a little disorganized, it was a long trip, and the day became hot quickly.  So we had to quit them short of the finishing point and will finish tomorrow.

The cattle rest along the Green River with the Wind River Mountains in the background.

This is the last day of the ride for me though.  I have to be away on other business tomorrow and will leave the last day of the ride to the other cowboys.

Don’t quit me yet though.  I will be posting more…
