(Pinedale, Wyo.) - The Bureau of Land Management - Wyoming posted this photo to its Facebook page today for a Pinedale field office spotlight. According to the post, "The Green River Drift is considered one of the oldest remaining cattle drives in the U.S. The 58-mile cattle migration happens twice a year, once in the spring and during the late fall. The cows begin their journey grazing on BLM lands outside of Pinedale and Big Piney and end when they arrive at their summer grazing grounds on U.S. Forest Service lands on Union Pass in the Wind River Mountains.Today, the Green River Drift continues to operate as one of the oldest existing cattle drives in the country." *Feature Photo: A 1920’s photo of riders working on the Green River Drift, considered one of the oldest remaining cattle drives in the U.S. The 58-mile cattle migration happens twice a year, once in the spring and during the late fall.
