Description

Image shows a field of harvested grain formed into shocks to dry and not removed from the field before an early snowfall covered them. Pioneer Peak is prominent in background. Grain left late into winter in this way tended to reduce the quality of the feed somewhat and often fell victim to predation by moose wintering in the valley.
