The Ranch: May Walkabout

Upper Meadow:












Middle Meadow:



    




Lower Meadow:







As I was walking, I suddenly was struck by the sounds - I take them for granted when I am here.  "Hey", I thought, "I can take a video and share them":


I found the hawk that you hear high in a tree (Apologies, this was the best I could do.  He is that yellow blob):

  1. In the middle of the pack, there is a picture of a post setting on some sort of metal base with a box on top. Can't come up with a reasonable explanation for what it might be?

    1. Ed, that is a pump box over a well head. There are a number of them set around the property. At one time I believe this may have been irrigated, although that was long before my time. We do have a couple (lower down in the field) that are used for water troughs only.

  2. A couple of photos into your post my brain's jukebox decided to play music.
    Some research later I found that the music is Edvard Greig's "Morning Mood" from "Peer Grynt."
    I'm going to let the earworm keep on playing.

    Beautiful scenery and it reminds me of how much we need to get out of the house.

    1. If I can help get Grieg going in your mind, my work is done here!

      It is funny John - so often I feel lazy about getting out, but always feel better after I do.

  3. Lovely, and so nice to see blue sky and sunshine. We're finally getting some of that.

    I enjoyed the clip with the hawk call. The sounds on my walks are an important part of the overall experience.

    1. Thank you Kelly.

      The hawk cry was almost an afterthought - I did not even really pay attention to it until I started filming.

    1. Glen, there are not really any standing year round water directly on the property. That said, there are reservoirs in the area - mostly trout, catfish, and sunfish (Blue Gill).

      My father never really let anyone hunt on the property (the son of The Cattlemen took a couple of turkey by bow once or twice). There are deer and turkey (obviously). We are not too far from national forests and there is a deer and turkey season that I know of.
