Wednesday in Wyoming -- September 23, 2015

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.

    1. Judy -- I'm sorry to hear about the reasons you left Meeteetse. Any chance that you'll come back to Wyoming?
