Here’s a couple pictures of the country my grandfather ran cows in. My cousin still does today. For perspective, if you were to ride a horse from where I stand with camera to the big ridge to the east, it’s about a three or four hour trip. It rough country but it’s ours.

I finally found the pictures I was searching for. The spring is down the hill from where I took the first picture. Teh pipeline goes out that road. The trough is just passed where the road goes out of sight. The second picture is looking across sinker canyon to the ridge we put the troughs on. The pictured trough is on the upper left side of the picture. The pipeline runs down the ridge to that flat on the right side of the picture where another trough is installed.

I wasn't involved in the installation of the pipeline. Coming down the hill to that last tank is some sort of a pressure reduction thing. I never even looked at it. It was a BLM and conservation district project. The BLM put in the pipe. The district couldn't even get a bid to install the troughs so it became our baby. They bought the materials. Installed 4 new troughs and plumbed in one existing trough. Two half days. The biggest problem was travel time and hauling in their troughs.. Not an easy place to get to.
