Mother Nature has brought monsoons to Disappointment Valley for the first time in two years, and we are incredibly grateful. The range is green, and the mustangs are fat. In the photo above, Luna and Baylee graze under a cloudy, almost-sunset sky while rain falls in the distance along the La Sal Mountains in Utah.
Angeni is full, so she naps while Mahogany grazes nearby. Those ridges are to the southeast of the sanctuary.
Handsome Blanco glows in the light while he grazes on fresh-grown grass.
Jif has a fabulous view of the La Sal Mountains while she grazes. This direction is looking northwest from the sanctuary, across lower Disappointment Valley.
And Miss Snow looks across Disappointment Creek (out of this image to the south) at another band on the sanctuary.
We are loving the rain, the cooler temperatures and, most of all, the gift of growing grass in the high desert.
