Alegre and a couple of her mare buddies seemed slightly affronted when the rest of the band left the water catchment after they all drank and wandered up the hill for better grazing. But once they decided that their friends weren’t waiting and weren’t coming back, Alegre and co. decided they’d better get in gear.

If you look closely – which is to say far away – you might see that the flanks of Utah’s La Sal Mountains were still tinged with gold (about 10 days ago). Now, the aspens have spent their glory, and the cottonwoods are the stars of the riparian shows.

It’s usually dry in this high-desert part of the world. … But it’s not usually THIS dry. There’s beauty to be found still, though. 🙂

Better move on. I feel like that now, move on!
The color is welcomed with such joy and then it is faded. Great picture.

Stay in motion. From my (serious) biking days: Keep those pedals turning. 🙂

And the cottonwoods are truly “stars” this year – absolutely glorious! And Alegre looks like a mustang on a mission! I love those horses and their fondness for “togetherness.” 😊

They’re pretty amazing along the length of Disappointment Creek. I imagine they’re stunning along the Dolores and other rivers, too! In the pic, Alegre had almost reached her goal. The other mares were already grazing, but Hollywood was looking at her like “where ya been?” 🙂
