Turkey Hill On Turkey Day

The kids and i took a little run and hike today, up turkey hill for turkey day. Turkey hill was named back when they raised turkeys around here. I have never seen a turkey up there, but i have seen many a coyote.

We started of with a short run up the fields, collies along of course.

Then we started the hike up Turkey hill looking for coyote dens. First we crossed the irrigation ditch. When the water is in the ditch we use a lil wood bridge. Some dogs and kids used the bridge and some did not.


Then we started the hike. 

We made it to the top and were rewarded with an amazing view. To the west Mt. Shasta


And to the east, our valley.

Our lambs grazing alfalfa stubble, view from the top.

Back down we go, and big brother helps his baby sis just a little :)


We find several dens on the way back down.

Walked back down the ditch.

Found some great treasures in the fresh water shells in the sand.


Back home for some prime rib with all the fixings. A very blessed day here at the 10-7 and wishes to all of you a grand Thanksgiving.
