Mountains rose and valleys sank to the levels God decreed.

We count on miracles with this beautiful little bar. Sometimes, it comes out a little darker, sometimes a little lighter. Russ likes to say that if a mosquito flies into the workshop and farts, the color's off.
Still, the scent's always the same: clove, orange, vanilla, cinnamon, and a breath of whiskey. It's a little spicy and a little sweet.

Here's a fun throwback for this cold January Thursday! This photo was taken over 10 years ago during fall 2008 at the bottom of the Big Hat Creek drainage on our public lands grazing allotment.
We still have both the mares in the photo, although Ginger (the stubborn buckskin) has since learned to load more willingly. Furthermore, we continue to use that robin egg blue trailer for forays far afield in the Hat Creek high country. It might be less blue and more steel-colored at this point, but it's one tough little trailer and it has proved its handiness again and again in tight spots a gooseneck could never pass through. You know what they say: if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
Some things do change, however. 10 years ago, we were still managing our herd of momma cows on our range while the beeves stayed on home pastures. We didn't camp with the range cattle and hadn't yet begun experimenting with the intensive herding methods we've been working on the last few years.
We were implementing more conventional rangeland management, riding multiple days a week to keep track of our cows' whereabouts to make sure they couldn't continuously graze sensitive riparian areas. This photo documents one of many single-day missions gathering cattle off the range to bring them back to the home ranch for the winter. -Melanie #throwback #throwbackthursday #highcountry #cowdogs #ranchlife
The beautiful view from Taliesin West! The newly-built power lines ruined the view so Frank Lloyd Wright wrote a letter to President Truman demanding they be buried. He didn't win.

Two years ago, I joined a photography retreat with the most nurturing souls. Why? I wasn't a senior. I'm not a model. Why did I go? Honestly, I was in a really dark place when I had my senior photos taken. Junior year of high school was spent relapsing into previous toxic behaviors. I wanted a do over. I wanted to truly be present in the experience. I wanted to document how much I had grown. What I got from this trip was so much more. I met beautiful young women & we stayed up talking late into the night in the most unique airbnb. I saw types of scenery for the first time. I was out of my comfort zone & I found it to be exhilarating. I would love to go on some kind of soul awakening retreat again. Have you ever gone on a retreat? Tell me about it! At some point in my life, I would love to host one for the chronic community. I am all about expression & altering perspectives & grounding yourself to earth. It's a beautiful experience.
