[Between Gunnison and Crested Butte]

As I was driving north to Kebler Pass and the largest concentration of aspens in Colorado, I saw this herd on my left.

It was at that moment that the JPG "gene" kicked in. I was already beyond the cows when I knew I had to turn around and take a picture. On my mind were some of the great shots of farm animals I have seen at JPG. True!

As I approached, the cows did what all cows do: They looked at me! I wondered for just a second if they knew how privileged they were to be living on a Colorado ranch with aspens in their back yard.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

    Thank you, Andrea, for letting me know. I should tell you now that when I saw this herd, I was thinking of your pastoral scenes full of friendly Holsteins!
