Well, I’m finally getting around to posting some pictures of my family’s cattle drive in California that has happened every year since . . . come to think of it, I don’t know when. Maybe I should find that out. The spring drive takes place in May and June when we drive the cattle up to the high country near Yosemite National Park where they spend the summer grazing green grass and enjoying the cool lazy days. Kirk and I were very thankful to be able to help on the entire drive this year. The cattle begin the drive as one herd and are eventually seperated into smaller herds and driven to different grazing allotments in the high Sierra Mountains. For a few days we even drive them on Hwy. 120 which is one of the main entrances into Yosemite. The second to last herd that we drove on the highway enjoyed cool weather when it rained on us for the entire drive. My cousin Renee went that day because she had never been on that particular part of the drive (nor had she ever driven cattle in the pouring rain!). However, she did not complain about leaving her office job and enjoyed it very much!
One side note: our little girl can now say when she is born that she has been on her Papa and Gramma’s cattle drive!
