Spring is a special for ranchers. The new calves need to be rounded up, counted and branded. There is a ranch near Prescott that Bill helps during the spring round up. It is in a long, open valley that is bordered on both sides by high Rim Rock Mesas. Before sunrise he and the other hands ride out and split up to gather different sections of the ranch. As the sun comes up, it spreads a warm glow over the land and from every direction cowboys can be seen bringing cattle down from the high country of the mesas to the hold-up grounds in the valley below. Bill felt compelled to capture that image.
