Today was one of those days that you just have to stop every five minutes and take a picture - and I love those days! The 12 minute drive to Witcher quickly turned into more than 30, but the opportunity to stop and take photos was just too great a temptation!
Branding days are days that seem to bring history back to the and carrying on a tradition that is still very much a necessity to ranch life. We no longer build a fire to heat the iron, but the roping and wrasslin' are techniques brought forward from the old days. And the comradery between everyone involved is something that has held ranching communities together for generations.
Beyond all that, Colorado weather always adds to the jovial atmosphere. Last year, I remember a hot sun; this year we went from cloudy, to a few snow flakes, to a typical spring snow storm.
By the time I returned home in the afternoon, the snow was gone and the songbirds had returned. Of course, as I finish typing, the big fat spring flakes have returned and are starting to accumulate. Just a good 'ol Colorado Spring day on the ranch.
