I was on a scouting trip to the northeast corner of California, checking out the Warner Range and other recording opportunities.  I was in Cedarville having a greasy breakfast a a local joint which had a little buzz going that morning, it wasn’t just the coffee.  I found out that one of the large ranches was transporting  200-300 head of cattle to their Summer grazing grounds up in the mountains.  This involved a cattle drive through the middle of downtown.  Since by the time I got out of breakfast the herd was fast approaching, I pulled out the microphones and this is what I heard:

As I continued exploring the area I had several other opportunities to drive through the same cattle swarm.  Good thing I wasn’t in a hurry.
