Moving the Cows:

 

On our way to Reno a few weeks ago, we were in ranch country between Lakeview, Oregon and Alturas, California.  We came upon this scene:



Some of these pictures were taken through a dirty windshield, but they still help to capture the moment.  There were several cowboys and cowgirls on horses, three or four remarkable dogs, cows of all ages, and a cop car.

 


I got out for a little bit to shoot some clearer photos.  Those cows were just milling around.  I think that the purpose of this event was to move the cows from one pasture to another.  Cows are pretty dumb though, and it was taking a long time.  The babies kept good track of their mamas, however.


I don't know what this guy did that was so bad he had to get thrown into jail.



I really like this picture.  The dogs were getting thirsty, they seemed to be the ones working the hardest.  You could tell that they lived for days such as these though.


Twins:


This baby was on the wrong side of the fence, and the dog had to go and get it:







The countryside was beautiful.  It only went downhill after we were past Alturas, becoming hours of boring sagebrush.





After awhile, the cop motioned for us to go through the cattle-jam.  Cary drove slowly; the cows don't seem to know much about cars. 







As we drove on, I hollered out to the cowboy as we passed by, "Good dogs!"  He smiled and waved.

Miles down the road, I spotted this tipped over box car:


And, that is that.

Hope that you are all having a wonderful day!

Are you looking for info about Tyler Matthews?

Check this stuff out below:

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video


Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
