Montana scenery never gets old. The change of seasons is something amazing to see. Though it seems like winter ended just a few days ago, we're already headed into June with greenery surrounding us and the days getting even longer. Waking up at 4:30 to see the sky already lighting up behind the mountains is … Continue reading Early Summer keeps me on the road | Travel Montana
Reached 114* (heat index of 122*) in Little Rock yesterday. That sets the all-time historic high temperature for the city. We started this morning out at 86 which sets an all-time record warm low temperature. Is any one else crying mercy? I was in the hot, over-heating tractor, and the air conditioner wasn't working well. … Continue reading Thankful Thursday
You could not pay me enough to get out of the tractor in the fields I'm cleaning this week. These fields are in the river bottom and are recently reclaimed timber land.

We just baled our first fields yesterday and things are off to their usual start. The transmission in … Continue reading Photo Friday: Hay Season!

The 7-day shows lows 73-74 and highs 95-98 all week-long. I have never been to a sauna, but I have a feeling those of us in … Continue reading Summer Has Arrived – Mind The Water Supply
Memorial Day! This week marks the start of summer as well as hay season here on the ranch. We'll start laying grass on the ground and with temps this week in the middle 90s (heat indexes nearing the century mark) it'll cure pretty quick. The cows are pretty content, so I had the opportunity to … Continue reading Sounds of Summer
