Friends Judy and Tom sent the picture above and the description below. Wish I'd been there!
This was in the side yard of the cow camp where we camped for the last three days. Still too cold up there to have any flowers, but within a month, I'm sure the wife of the cowboss will have some flowers here.
The place is called Little Fish Lake Ranch. It's not a ranch in the sense that someone lives there the year round. In a couple of weeks they will have pushed the cattle up to this point and beyond, where they will stay until roundup in the fall. Tom's father and several of his uncles worked for an outfit that owned this place back in 1946. Tom was two years old when they lived there for a few months at that time. They moved with the cattle from one camp to another.
We were about 40 miles east of Tonopah, Nevada, and then drove on a dirt road north for 42 miles to the site. It is stunning country...if you like the desert.
