Simply some late summer snapshots

Cloud mountain over the meadow.
The big rock at the top of the road; The Homestone on a late summer afternoon.

Two of our ram lambs. Aren't they pretty boys?!

And a beaver pond just down the road.

Summer projects and summer skies

Haying the meadows provides winter feed and bedding for the sheep. And winter feed for our neighbours' livestock. It's good stuff :) and the fields are in lovely shape this year. We use our pine (killed by the pine beetle) for firewood of course, and for all sorts of things around the property ~ log fencing particularly. This is one way we tie up the carbon ~ by selectively logging the smaller standing dead pine for fencing, building corrals and outbuildings. Summer project number 127 (or there abouts) is a mile of log fence around the perimeter.
Vincent and his fence! And ohhh, those summer skies.
