The fence is the western boundary of Spring Creek Basin. The white cable as the top “strand” of the fence is from the old days when roundups were done by helicopter, and the horses were moved to the west fence line, then down into Spring Creek canyon and trapped at the upper end of it.

We don’t do that anymore, of course, but it’s still a good visual boundary for the horses on the rare occasion when they get close to that area.

The La Sal Mountains of Utah rise into the sunset on our northwestern horizon.

P.S. Happy summer solstice! As we start the slide toward shorter days and winter, I think I can speak for all of us when I say the biggest thing we want in the near future are our monsoon rains.

We’re not greedy. We’d just like some soft, gentle, consistent rain. … For about a week. ๐Ÿ™‚

Praying for the monsoon and beautiful cloud sunsets instead of hazy, dusty late light! Neat photo from the borderline, TJ.

Agreed! I don’t think we’re getting much more smoke, but the dust is pervasive.
