#RangelandWednesday: Rain Delay

This was a usual week. On Monday and Tuesday, I resprayed fields and pastures that Larry and I sprayed at the beginning of my internship in Buffalo.

Sometimes certain fields require respraying.

Wednesday and Thursday brought stormy weather, which conflicted with our respraying schedule because it added three inches of water to Clear Creek. In order to respray the last of the fields and riparian areas, I need to travel across the creek and due to the high water levels, this will have to be push back to next week—my eighth and final week here in Buffalo.

High water levels can make crossing the creek difficult.

This was also a week of chores that—in my opinion—kept me busy but added no further experience into studying or identifying rangeland species. Going more into detail, Wednesday and Thursday was spent in the garage sweeping for eight hours, two of which I spent fixing a backpack sprayer, which I did not mind.

Friday of this week and Monday of next I am taking off to visit my family in the Rawahs (Rocky Mountain National Park) for the 4th of July weekend. When I return next week, I will begin to respray the riparian areas across the creek, if water levels are permitting.

Hopefully it will be possible to spray next week.

After having finished up the first half of my internship here in Buffalo next week, I will be joining the Kane family in Sheridan to finish the remainder of my internship at SR Cattle Company.

Next week will wrap up the first half of the internship.
