In late September, when drought does not parch this land, the sage blooms brilliant yellow, and for a few weeks the landscape is a sea of eye-piercing gold.
As the sun settled slowly into the western horizon, a wash of golden light poured over the vibrant yellow sage in bloom, setting the range ablaze.
The stallion watched me; wary, but not frightened. Perhaps he sensed I meant no harm, or maybe just knew I could never reach him through the high brush.
We shared that golden moment, and I thanked him for his pose.
