June
Warm days & Cool Nights
June is a great month to visit the ranch. Trees and bushes now have leaves, the stickers have not yet returned to the meadow, and the temperatures are mild. Wear long sleeves and pants, though… The gnats will drive you crazy this month. They go away after a few weeks, thankfully…

Antelope
June 5th, 2004.
Afternoon.
We were driving around Sierra Verde Ranch, doing some exploring when we came across these antelope about a mile from our place. It was in the 900 parcel number range. Please excuse the pixelation, as I didn’t have quite enough optical zoom on the camera…

Dusk.
While taking an early evening walk, we ran across these deer crossing Gunner’s Mate Road, just East of our Ranch.

Dusk.
We applied a little digital magic to this photo, to better bring out the deer in the low lighting.

Stick Bushes

Morning.
Most of the year, these appear to be just dried up sticks poking out of the ground. We finally saw some leaves on them this trip!

I kind of zoomed in on the butte in the distance here…

Monsters!

The locusts are really thick this year.
Here is one emerging from his shell.
