Cattle heading form the road to the pasture

This photo shows the next stage of the cattle drive from a day use pasture to the pasture where the cows spend the evening.

Several days ago Jack commented that the cows look thinner than cows in New England.  That is a common reaction when people see the local Brahman cattle.  They are not malnourished.  They live in the midst of lush vegetation.  They are thin and naturally have a bone structure that protrudes prominently.

Tomorrow I will show a photo of the cowboys who were herding these cattle.

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.

It looks like the same bone structure as a few super models I've seen.
