I took the dogs to the pond…

We’ve had a dry summer. Rain fell everywhere around us, but not here.

The ranch pond a couple of miles from home on a good year overflows its banks. This year it’s a puddle.

I saw the prints of cattle in the drying mud, of deer and javelina.

I saw where shore birds stepped.

And I saw the tracks of bobcat and mountain lion.
