They were pretty happy to go since the previous pastures weren't yummy anymore. Plus the trek doesn't seem so far since it's downhill ;-) They spend most of the morning ranging to the farthest corners and then work their way back.

"Mom? Are you coming? Everybody's going!"

"Oh yes, much better! "

Remember that super moon we had a few nights ago? I wasn't able to get a good picture of it at night but the next morning it was still showing just above the trees to the west. I sure wish I could remember what setting I used :-/
"I love a full moon! All the better to see them mouses by!"
