    Or, That's a whole lotta hamburger !
    While riding up a dead end road in Sequoia NP at a good clip, I had to brake hard to avoid these cows. Before this photo was snapped, about 6 cows had stopped when I did. The rest of em came down the hill from behind and tried to jump (leap cow) over the leaders. I didn't stick around for a better shot cause there were a lot more behind em.
    There was a large fire burning in the High Sierras to the North of this area, and were moving them to safety.
    Can't stop thinking about a Porterhouse now.

    Somewhere along the South Dakota/Nebraska border. We just relaxed and watched the cowboys work the cattle on by.

    We had to wait too. They actually passed us before I was ready putting on the helmet and such. They we had to ride around them in the sagebrush. They were going up the road for miles and we didn't have an alternate route so it was wait or go around.

    On Rollin's Pass west. Not really a roadblock, so much as a closed tourism 'doodad'. The road is old railroad grade, so they left a few things behind.
