Morning Peace

Out for an early ride on Red to check cattle, at least that's what I've told others. The real purpose was to find that early morning tranquility by listening to the music of the hay meadow while horseback.

A dew rises from the freshly baled hay of the meadow. Red seems to be enjoying the early stroll as much as I am. A gentle breeze is blowing so the Cottonwoods are the melody for this morning's music. The sounds of distant coyotes yelping in unison provide the chorus.

Nothing like early mornings at the ranch!

Cattle are well and the sun is rising over the ridge so it's time to start the rest of my day.
