Rain over the La Sal Mountains at sunset.

Rain at sunset over Utah’s La Sal Mountains, looking to the northwestish – golden rain.

And looking to the eastish across Spring Creek Basin to McKenna Peak, Temple Butte, Brumley Point and beyond … pink rain.

Mother Nature has a pretty amazing palette out here in the wide, wild, beautiful world. 🙂





Quite a view

Killian's, Filly Peak and the La Sal Mountains

And there they are. Mustangs in a big, beautiful, wild land.

Houdini, Maia and Alegre

Spending time with the mustangs renews your faith in the world. Mostly because the rest of the world seems far, far away when you’re with them. 🙂





Soggy … wonderful

Winona and Mariah; La Sal Mountains.

It wasn’t at all soggy when this photo of Winona and Mariah was taken, last weekend, but it IS soggy now.

It was so soggy, and with more rain in Tuesday’s forecast, that the University of Missouri students – here again for alternative spring break! – canceled yesterday’s work in Spring Creek Basin. 🙂 But tomorrow calls for sunshine and high temps in the 50s, so we’re looking forward to meeting this year’s crop of hard-working students and getting some more fence work done!

We are VERY happy about the rain. It brings us to nearly an inch of moisture for the month of March. (Yikes. March is supposed to be the wettest month in Colorado.)





A glow

Hayden, La Sal Mountains

Hayden spent most of our visit napping over a stud pile.

Dude, that’s not very photogenic.

Then he turned and looked at a nearby band as I was walking away. Thanks, pal. 🙂





Happy days

We got rain. 🙂

Relief.

Gratitude.
