Bledsoe Ranch – CO. Great Ranches of the West


“As I step outside I’m surprised by the dense morning haze. It reminds me of the thick, wet fog along the California coast in my boyhood town of Santa Cruz. Sounds are muffled. Mist cloaks the trees around the ranch house until they are shrouded like ghostly sentinels. I hike far out into the pasture and position my cameras on a small berm where the herd will pass by. The fog is nearly impenetrable. I hear men yelling and the lowing of the cattle but see nothing. When you stare into whiteness for an extended period, you develop a sort of visual vertigo. Your eyes play tricks on you; you think you see movement where there is none. It’s mystifying how the cowboys can even find the cattle in this fog.”
– Jim Keen, Great Ranches of the West Author & Photographer
