Cattle grazing in open range country along the Rocky Mountain Front near Augusta, Montana…

I need to give a shout out to my buddy, my partner in crime. She gets me everywhere I need to go. Even up and down some trails that would make a mountain goat pee itself a little. And she always gets me home safe. My truck. Her name is Ripley and I decided that it’s time to say thanks and dedicate a post to her.
While exploring Montana farm country I came upon the town of Judith Gap. A police car was blocking the road. The officer told me a parade was about to start celebrating the 100th anniversary of the opening of the town school. So I had to get a few snapshots… Update – I seem to be getting some visitors from Judith Gap – Welcome! – so I added a few more pictures.

Looks like summer to me!

Tried to cross Mullen Pass. Denied! Too much snow on the road.
Montana seems to have more cows than people. As I roam through their lands I often seem to develop a case of BTTS (Bovine Triggered Tourette Syndrome). I can’t help myself. So I decided it’s time to document my affliction and introduce a new occasional feature to the blog. Cow Annoying Time, or C.A.T. for short….
