This Is a Land Apart

They are not making any more of it

Over There Is Casper Mountain

And we’re on Muddy Mountain. In between is Jackson Canyon. and a whole lot of what makes the West what it is. Up the road a piece is a herd of sheep, guarded by a suspicious but cordial dog, who appears to be a Poodle-Labrador mix. I have never before seen a lab with white, curly hair. He’s intent on keeping the sheep safe, but you can tell he’d love to fetch a tennis ball if one should appear.

Across the way, a herd of black baldy cattle is grazing on the sere dry grass. I think it’s the same bunch I photographed back in July at the bottom of the canyon, when the grass was better.

The West changes, and is ever the same.

    I love your audio narrations! They add so much to your photos, though those are lovely in and of themselves. Your voice is just so perfect for them!
