The Rancher went back to work for a day last week to fill in for someone else. This area has been hit by the Mountain Pine Beetle, so the damaged pine trees have been cut down and logged in an attempt to salvage the wood.
This is almost at the city limits, in a very exclusive subdivision filled with million dollar homes. The beetles don't care that they are lowering the property values of all those fancy houses, they just love those old growth forests full of huge pine trees!
Photo-finish Friday is the creation of the Bag Lady's cousin, Leah, and you can check out her photo here at the Goat's Lunch Pail.
