A morning drive

Today I drove five hours to conduct a 16 minute interview in person. Why not over the phone you ask? I'm not sure. No one is.

I didn't mind the drive and really enjoyed getting to see people feeding and little calves racing across pastures. But it's been a really busy week and it would have greatly reduced several people's stress level if I had just called the guy. Oh well, it's over, the article is done and I got in a little road trip before the blizzard hit.

Yes, another snowstorm is sweeping across Wyoming this afternoon and is expected to last a few days. Yay for the moisture! Boo for the poor weather conditions right in the middle of calving and some people's lambing season. The dramatic temperature changes are hard on the little guys.
I also implemented the "bring Roundup Cadillac to a screeching halt on the side of the road" technique to capture these and a few other photos today. I'm not much of a Charolais person, but they looked good in the cornstalks. The paper has been in need of "cattle in cornstalk" photos this year and we don't have any on file so these should come in handy sometime!


  1. beautiful photos! I fully support road trips of all kinds! Also that you pulled to a screeching halt for a photo ;) Sometimes it just has to happen.

    Wyoming looks gorgeous. I haven't been there in a long, long time.

  2. I just love your photos. I usually just want you to print them all off so I can decorate my house with them.

  3. Good for you for stopping - these photos are great!
