Paradise For Cows (#616)

In the one day driving across Nevada from northwest to southeast, I experienced a sand storm with 75 degree temperatures in Whiskey Flats, 50s with a biting cold wind in Tonopah, then sultry and calm 70s in Mesquite just before crossing into Utah.

Road signs all along the highway said, “Open Range”  Yes, I could see that.  Lots of open range.  But that is not what they meant.

The signs should have said, “Our Cows Roam Free” or “No Fences between You and the Cows” or even “Cows Crossing Everywhere”

These ladies just crossed the road in front of me

Come on Girls...

Come on Girls…

And yes, I was driving through cow patties all day long 🙂

    what beautiful country. Mountains in the background so pretty. The cows are very attractive too. They sure are chubby for not having a lot of grass to eat. Guess they find stuff that suits them.
