Cattle and cows

Here is another photo of the cattle drive sharing the rural road with whatever traffic needed to pass.  The cows looked like they were used to the cars.

You can see the sheen from the somewhat oily skins of the Brahma cattle that are common in Costa Rica.     The northwest area of Costa Rica has a lot of cattle ranches.  Some of the large property holdings have evolved from the large tracts of Spanish colonial land grants land, similar to some of the large land holdings in California.  In most of the rest of Costa Rica, it is more common to find small farms which are also plentiful in our area.

This week we are showing photos of the dry, mountainous Atacama Desert of northern Chile on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  It is quite a contrast to the lush green coastal lowlands of Costa Rica.

That first cow seems to be saying "Excuse me, coming through!"

Looks like both the animals and the cars are familiar with one another.

That one cow is eyeing that car pretty seriously.

Those horns could make a serious dent in a car.

Yes, these cows have much sleeker coats than are typical in our area. And, they are a lot skinnier.
