For years now out behind the school, a riding lawn mower has laid dormant. For about a month, Tyler has been asking us to ask the principal if we could buy it and fix it up. At first, the answer was no, however, in time a deal was struck. Tyler could have the mower in exchange for working at school over the summer. With a little bit of elbow grease and new parts, the yellow amd green machine has roared to life. Repairs are not complete however, the blades need help and the motor burns some oil. Even with these setbacks, Tyler and Julia's facial expressions say it all.
Here are some reasons I enjoy working at Big Horn County Weed and Pest here in Wyoming. Note the native observers (last two photos). Shot on location, these pictures were taken out in the Beaver Creek area, east of Greybull and west of the community of Shell. The red Kawasaki Mule is mine and the John Deere Gator (green and yellow) is driven my co-worker. In the background you can see the snow capped Bighorn Mountains.
