Pausing in the process of eating lunch, a calf looks to see why I’ve stopped by. Over the last few days, I’ve seen a few cows, probably not nearly as many as on farms west of the mountains, or in other parts of eastern WA. Precious land here is wheat country not cow country. Cows are curious creatures and will follow you down a fence line to see what you’re up to and where you’re going. Here a calf stops eating a tasty mouthful of hay to consider my presence which briefly disrupts her otherwise normal daily routine.
My routine is not normal this week, except that I’ve been driving a lot every day which I do at home driving 100+ miles daily in my 40′ school transit style school bus. I’ve had the pleasure to spend several days in the Palouse region of southeastern Washington state, the premier wheat growing region in the Pacific Northwest. Today, I’m driving back across the state from Colfax, to home in Seattle. It’s a long drive and I’ll, of course, make it much longer because I stop again and again and oh, again to take just one more shot!
Thanks for joining me today, for the view that is right here! ~ Madge
