Oh, Owyhee dust! Every footfall - horse, human, bird, ant - erupts in an explosion of fine silt. A herd of horses walking down the canyon kicks up a monstrous cloud that floats upward in the still air, hanging unwanted, tinting the skies and shading the sun.
Oh, Owyhee dust!
That's just nasty. You might need a mask to be able to breath in that mess.ReplyDelete
I know it's yucky, but it makes stunning photos!ReplyDelete
It makes my throat dry, just reading about it, I hope you get relief from that soon. Cool pics though!ReplyDelete
The photos look great, but I wouldn't want to breathe the air.ReplyDelete
I remember reading in the Cavalry Manual about the deleterious effects of dust for those people and horse further back in a troop.ReplyDelete
Oh geez - I never thought of that. That would be a big reason to volunteer to be on the front line!Delete
Exactly! Makes me thankful for our moisture - even if it comes with the price of high humidity...ReplyDelete
