Water is a blessing and a curse for a cattleman. Sure it gives the cattle an opportunity to drink, but then herding them across a river or stream can be tough. Photography by Dam King.

    I was born in Oregon, one of the most beautiful states. We then moved to Ca. where my husband recieved his PhD. His first job was in another beautiful state of N, Hampshire. Traveling across country with 4 kids was really exciting. After 3 years, we then moved to Texas—Got here as fast as I could state. We saw alot of the U.S.A. and parts of Canada in our travels. The Country magazine brings back alot of memories. I can’t believe people travel to other countries when there is so much to see here. What a wonderful part of the world we live in…..

    We went to visit our kids in Oregon, and then spent some time on the Oregon Coast at Lincoln City. Devil’s Lake is just inland from the ocean and the outfall was near our motel. I was up early one morning and took this picture of the lake showing the mist on the water, the ocean’s early morning fog, and clouds above. The colors were also interesting and made for an unusual photograph.
