Back at the Ranch

Such adventures!

Hank & Cap have been tootling eastwards lately, meandering through semi-ghostly small towns and sunny fields in secret valleys and piney hills…homeward bound towards family and memories.

This lovely valley nestled in the berried hills has always been an interesting place.

Did you know that Hank’s favorite travel strategy is to immediately eat something gross on arrival? Which he barfs up all night and into the next?

As well committing other terrible atrocities we will not speak of?

Yes. Which means that Cap gets the pillows all to himself. Being a little slow to the party is his favorite strategy.

Speaking of parties, the boys love meeting new friends in old haunts…

How’s it going, beautiful?

…and Cap enjoys the green, green acres. Anyone seen my buffalo chaps?

The boys think this is one heck of a spot and can’t wait to get back.

Such good people, such good memories. Stay tuned for more H & Co. adventures east of the mountains!

The true nature of mountains is that they are mountains. They practice both stillness holding their place and moving with change. Men and women can be reborn through mountains. Ancestors abide in mountains. And mountains disappear the closer you are to them…Realizing fully the true nature of place is to talk its language and hold its silence.

    Great photos. I almost felt like I was there. Thanks for sharing

    Warm. Dry. Looks pretty inviting this morning.

    Funny how chaps were invented before chainsaws.

    Love the photo of the the wee Highlanders! Front, back, and three-quarter profiles on a fresh green background.

  3. Hank. says:

    A pretty perfect climate, outside of Baja, we think! Hot and dry in the summertime, crisp and clear in the winter. Sigh. And yes, aren’t those three something else? You’d not necessarily think of Scotties as ranch dogs but boy are they ever…tenacious and ready for anything! Sending warm and dry thoughts your way.

  4. Hank. says:

    Heck yeah. BTW, we have something for you from Malta!

  5. Dana Arnim says:

    So where is this lovely place?

  6. Hank. says:

    Secret Squirrel will tell you when we see you next! Heh heh.

Woof! Talk to Hank
