August 1, 2009
The morning stillness is now broken by the bawling of cattle and they are coming through the willows near where we are. An added touch of the old west for my new friends..
Forest Service regulations are such that cattle must be moved so as not to cause damage of Forest Service allotments[leases] This is especially important around riparian areas[stream bottoms]as they can be pretty heavily used by livestock and cause resource damage. Moments later this cowboy appears in the rear of the procession with his two dogs and is pushing them on across the river.
