These images are from an overnight stay, during the Memorial Day weekend, at a ranch in Tabernash located about 1 1/2 hours north of Denver. It was time for my wife, youngest son, and I to get out of the city and slow down. When I awoke Sunday morning, sunlight already filled the valley. Taking my camera with me, I walked to the stables to find them mostly empty. I headed back down the road.
Looking back at the ranch house, I noted a cowgirl on her horse carrying small yellow flag on the end of a thin pole. She eventually went out of view around the edge of a small hill. Again, I walked back down the gravel road to visit another part of the ranch, but turned in time to see her return with the horses. (To get the whole picture, sometimes you have to look back.)
