Road Trip 3 or Counting Sheep

Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation it is a corpse.
Winston Churchill

One of the more interesting things we experienced was seeing sheep with shepherds throughout the high desert of the Eastern Sierra Nevada's. Each group seemed to be similar in that they were herded by a lone anonymous figure in blue with a white hat. We stopped to take pictures at one juncture and dogs came to the fence to investigate us. The shepherd just quietly walked amongst his sheep and didn't pay direct attention to us, his attention was with his flock. It's a way of life that is ancient and it was a bit of a surprise to see it in 2008 California.
