Sunrise to sunset, work on a ranch is never done. Fix this, mend that, round up the herd, do the chores …

On a recent spring day, Aspen Times photographer Mark Fox spent some time with Mike Cerveny and Lee Sullivan on the McBride family’s Lost Marbles Ranch in Old Snowmass, capturing some images of ranch life. It’s a disappearing lifestyle, especially in the Roaring Fork Valley, but nonetheless a true and historic profession.

These photos are but a sampling. To truly capture a cowpuncher’s lifestyle would take days, even months. But even a few hours was a simple pleasure for this photographer.
