Have you ever seen a fence like this? I wasn't sure why there were extra pieces of wood until I noticed the wires connecting them. Apparently they're used to stabilize the fence in high winds. If you've ever been to Wyoming, you know why that's necessary. High winds are part of the reason we have some of the cleanest air in the country.
Here's another view of the fence. Note, too, the watering troughs. This is cattle ranching country, and beef on the hoof need water.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
