(2011.OCT.09&14) Bachelors Of Butte Valley

The driest summer months have past, and this year, the tank in Horse Canyon (one of many in this area) has remained full to overflowing. A year-round natural spring, this watering hole has served wild horses, deer, and elk continuously for more than fifty years. Sheep and cattle are rarely seen in this canyon - the sheep graze higher, the cattle stay in the lowland areas where crested wheat is abundant.

Horses do not foul their water sources as cattle do.
