Mostly green and gold here, with a little rust thrown in for good measure.
Hard to get a lot of detail from the back of a horse and I was just content enough up there not to want to get down. The Talent Irrigation Canal that runs at the very top of the property is a bird magnet.
The bushes were a twitter and a pair of grouse popped out ahead of us at one point. Made for a real ears forward moment! Cooper, being Cooper, was just lazy enough not to want to spook and instead settled for swiveling those ears around and giving the hiding spot the hairy eyeball as we went by. The canal is a mixed blessing. We don't get any benefit from it, but it does attract a lot of wildlife. That can be good and bad. I prefer not to use that road early in the morning when it is most active. It's a beautiful ride though and goes on for miles. Much of it is sided by woods but there is a place where it opens up into high chaparral. Some great views up there and a lot of rattlesnakes. We stick to the road.
