"Up before the sunrise
it's a rocky way back home
and the dust won't be near settled
as where we just come from..."
Lyrics from Don Edwards' song Say Goodbye to Montana
That is one of my favorite songs from Don Edwards...and changing wheel lines as the sun comes up over Hat Butte always brings that song into my mind.
While I'm gettin' at least one cup of coffee in me...My Man goes out at about 4:45 to shut down the two lines we change in the mornin'.
Steppin' out into the fresh new day's air...scents of horses, cows, hay, sage brush, and the dew wake me as good as a second cup of coffee.
Walkin' out to the field I'm greeted by views of the rim rock, the valley going east with horses and cows grazing, the neighbor's pivot moving slowly across the green alfalfa...another day of livin' the dream...
First cutting is done...and the temperatures are supposed to warm up in the next week...our alfalfa will be growing like crazy...you'd swear you can see it grow with the hot weather and lots of water!
I have to throw in one more photo from the Stackin' Hay day...
