In honor of spring and the wind and the sun and the green grass poking up around us, I would like to take you along on my favorite trail, the one that leads to the east pasture from our house, up along the buffalo fence, to the top of a rocky cliff and then down again to the stock dam and back toward home.
Next week this walk will be a little bit greener, a little bit warmer and, hopefully, I’ll find some crocuses.
Next week maybe I’ll leave the damn dogs at home so they don’t scare away the wildlife with their slobbering, panting, running, and puking.
I guess that’s what happens when you run at full speed after a duck, ignoring the screams from your owner to come back.
That’s what you get when you try out your instincts after seven months of lounging.
It’s been a long winter.
I would have puked too.
Anyway, I hope the sun is shining wherever you are and you have the chance to explore your favorite spot this weekend.
Now, off we go…
I want to walk that trail some day! 🙂

LOVE the pictures. The badlands are so unique. As a kid we would take a sack lunch and some water and wonder around all day. It is a wonder we didn’t meet up with a snake! Brings back memories.
Buffalo ! Wow. Thanks for the wonderful walk. Happy spring.
Do you farm the buffalo or are they wild? Sorry if that’s a dumb question – no buffaloe if my neck of the woods 🙂
Hi Mandy! Our ranch borders the Fort Berthold Reservation. The bison belong to the tribe. They raise them. There are little bison calves there now, but couldn’t get a photo of them that day 🙂
I love the artistic side of nature you shared, Jessie! Looks like your friends had a fun time too, even if they got a little too excited.
Oh, those photos are gorgeous and so evocative they make me feel like I’m right there on the trail. Beautiful! Happy spring and happy weekend.
Amazing picture – that catus one!
Nice the dogs can run and enjoy it all too
OK typing too fast – the prickly pear cactus! ( nice big skies!)
