The mom gets away for a two mile walk with the cow dogs a couple of times a week. These are the amazing views that I get to look at as I listen to my iPod and zone out thinking about nothing and everything at the same time. The locus trees have almost finished blooming so chances are pretty good we won’t have another hard freeze. The Inyo Mountains on the east side are purple and sage colored while the Sierras have a grey blue look and a melting snow pack from a long winter. What we do during the year is based on the events that surround the cattle operation. The cattle are being gathered and shipped up to the summer country in Bridgeport to be put out on the irrigated pastures. It is a busy time with many early mornings and late nights.
