The heifers that watched over my blog for two years may have retired, but my love for white faced cattle as not gone to the wayside.
The spring after I graduated in 2010, I was fortunate enough to spend a little over a month in eastern Oregon. That was the longest stint I had spent in almost four years. Presently, it still stands as the longest time frame I have spent in the Northwest since I left for college. And the rare opportunity to go home and bask in the non-humid, mountain air and spend time with some amazing people, is pretty exciting.
Like so many people, I love spring time in eastern Oregon. New life is all around, from the one week a year that the sagebrush is green to the baby lambs nestling in the wool of their mammas, it is a great time of year. Thankfully, I got to run home for a week in April to see some of my favorite people, throw a hugely successful surprise party for my Mom and hang for a short time at the ranch.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from the stunning Baker Valley.
