Prairie Homestead in Ranch Country

This batten & board house boasted two wide covered porches. The owners evidently owned the automobile parked out front (or they had a visitor who did). The pens are full of hay stacked to feed the cattle in the winter. Can you feel those cold winter winds howling off the mountains that are not far away?

Below: The harvesters pause for a moment while their picture is taken. The haystack beside the equipment will provide fodder for the animals in the winter when the fields are barren.
