Welcome to our place, a trailer with a back porch addition in the middle of 40,000 acres. I made the gate, it was my contribution to the fence that was already there.
And I hung the tire swing for kids who come but not many do.
There's a few corrals at the North Camp we use mostly to pull the bulls the 1st of August.
This is the creek at the south end of the lease, also known as the South Camp. Almost all the cows that come here have to cross this bridge or wade through the creek. We live at what they call the North Camp. Years ago, before horses were hauled as much, the lease rider would move his camp from the south end to north along with the cattle.
The terrain varies from open sand dunes in the North Sandhills pasture, bogs in the Calving pasture (folks used to calve cows here years ago), flat dry prairie in the Dragline pasture, and nice Riparian areas because of the Ducks Unlimited project that run from the north-west corner to the south east corner. I think I counted 96 miles of fence and there's sky, lots and lots of sky.
It's not much and it's not ours but its where we hang our hats and what we fill with happy memories.
