Hayden drinks from the east-pocket pond.

So much better than drinking out of muddy hoofprints. 🙂 Hayden drinks his fill from one of the ponds filled from recent rains in Spring Creek Basin.

(After this photo was taken and Hayden wandered off to graze, the musk thistle at back left met its demise at the point of my shovel.)


80 = 8

Today carried an 80 percent chance of rain. It looked promising. Most afternoons now bring promising clouds.

I think about eight drops hit the ground. Not really the kind of numbers I was hoping to see or feel!

In good news, at least five ponds filled from the recent big rain event up the valley and on the eastern side of the basin.
