To celebrate our Anniversary J and I decided to take a 4-wheeler ride through the Slim Buttes. Our friends B and L joined us. They brought their little girls, C and S, too.
I thought it would be relaxing to take a ride and fun to get together with friends. We had a picnic lunch and enjoyed a beautiful fall day. J had toured the Buttes before and was our trail boss.
We drove along all kinds of different trails. Smooth and dusty; rocky and rough. The trees kept us out of the wind. We did have to take off our hats when we were not surrounded by forrest.
The Slim Buttes are grazed by cattle. J didn’t think I needed to take more pictures of cows; even though I wanted to. They were red cows!
There are natural springs all over the Buttes and ranchers are able to use the water for livestock.
This was the end of our trail. We got back on the highway and headed for the pickups.
I told J that we had to have a picture taken together. He is not a big fan of getting his picture taken. Maybe because he is one of my most photographed subjects.
When we got home I went to making supper and J gathered the eggs. I was so excited when he showed me that one of the pullets laid an egg! They are so little.
Time spent out in nature on a beautiful fall day with friends made for a great Anniversary!
