Head for the Hills

Here in Western Maryland, we're having hot and humid weather this week, a sudden jump from cooler than normal spring temperatures.  As we struggle to acclimate, I thought about the sheep that just go up into the Big Horn Mountains outside Buffalo, Wyoming when it gets hot.   The air is clear, grass plentiful and temperatures cooler.  Then they grow the wonderful coat that makes the yarn we love. 

I love this picture of the sheep migrating up to the higher elevations.  That's them along the ridge.  This picture may have been taken in the summer as the grass is dry.  Right now I imagine the meadow flowers are getting ready to bloom.
