    Lovely photos, Katie. Very sharp and nicely done. That looks like larkspur among the clover. It can be poisonous to livestock .. does anyone know more about this? I’ve heard it takes a lot of larkspur plants to kill a cow and less to harm sheep.

    Message for webmaster – Let’s have some more beautiful photos on this site! I think we could all use some happy images. I saw a porcupine this morning gnawing grass with three Canada geese nearby staring at it. I tried to sneak closer but the porky waddled off into the sagebrush and then climbed into a willow clump to hide. I did take a photo. What about trying a “photo of the day” that greets us every morning when we check into “Cheers”, I mean Ralph’s blog.

    Katie,

    Thanks for a sweet taste of spring ~ even if only visual. Up in the high country we still have a lot of snow on the ground, though it’s been melting quickly the last few days.

    Very good photos! Thanks, Brian.

    Dad (Raph Maughan) will be back from his expedition to Nevada soon with some photos of his own.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
