10 miles out are the “Prairie Dog Hills” and looking across the Wyoming/Montana border are the Red Hills off in the distance. The border is where the line of trees in the center past the haybales. The grassy /hay baled area is part of our place. Past it is as I say, another state. I own land in Montana but not that direction. More over my right shoulder lol.
Most of my photos have both state landscape or sky in them somewhere.
A Pronghorn Quorum is when ever there is a buck present. He usually makes herd decisions on which way to go, is bossy as heck and generally likes to lag behind letting his girls see what’s “over the hill crest” first lol. This one had these girls all corralled but I was putting a kink in his style I believe.
I drove away and left them alone with out them running from me. My preferred way to end an encounter. The still watch me but don’t necessarily run from me if I stay in a vehicle. If I get out and they see my human shape….they are a blur and you see their butts…. I’m talking out in the backcountry of course where they don’t see many vehicles but mine.
Sunset Through the Golden Grass is the result of a patch of untouched (by cattle) hilltop of tall grass left over from this year. Golden Heads, tall, not necessarily easy to drive to as my headlights provided the light for this as I sat down with my neck against the front bumper of my Jeep Grand Cherokee with the PIAA backcountry legal only driving lights on . Just give me photons to catch and my traps will get them.
My jeeps (4) are indeed trail rated lolol. We live 14 miles from the nearest asphalt road and 70 miles from the nearest traffic light. We are very remote.
