Bucolic: origin from the Greek boukolos, cowherd or herdsman.
Driving in the Wasatch Mountains outside Salt Lake City was a revelation. I never expected flaming autumn colors. Or open range. With cowboys and dogs herding sheep along the road, and then around a corner more cowboys with cattle in the middle of the road.
Heading back to Salt Lake City on the state highway, I saw a little dirt road beckoning, and a quick exit led to a scene I won't forget.
After soaking in the wide grandeur, it was time to capture some details.
And I was readying to leave, the cows circled for a pleasant composition. A very fortunate detour.
