Scenes from the Ranch:

Winter has settled on the landscape in a beautiful, bright blanket of white. It is a shallow, light layer of snow and the cows are still grazing. Jack worked solo on a wagon ride up to the North pasture to break the ice on the cows’ water tank. It has been cold, and the creek at the base of the cliffs is frozen solid. At this time of the year, it is completely sheltered from the sun’s rays. Tomorrow I hope to get my ice skates out for an adventure. Never mind that the high will be 8 degrees. I’ve got layers for that.

I live in Montana with my husband Bart. I enjoy working in the garden, taking care of the animals, and exploring the prairie with my dogs, my binoculars, and a reverence for the natural world.

  1. Bob Mackin, here, years ago, I photographed a round up, mostly people. It turned out what I should’ve been photographing cows in the background when people looked at the photos all they could do is pick out the cows and describe each of their traits. I want a detailed report on the ice-skating please
