Every year cows need to be moved from the valley bottom where they winter and have their calves to the public lands on the state wildlife area where they spend the summer. Some ranchers find the easiest way to do this is to have an old-fashioned cattle drive right down the county road, through town and up the state highway on a Sunday morning. Yesterday was cool and clear – good for moving cows and making pictures. Lots of people knew about this ahead of time and were parked in good vantage points to see the cows pass through Twisp. Evidently this is a slow time of year for entertainment around here.

I wonder if TwispWorks was looking to get their lawn fertilized
