Famous mountain man and scout Jim Bridger recommended Idaho’s Cache Valley as the place for Brigham Young’s Mormon Mecca. He knew the Bear River and spring snowmelt from the mountains could provide plenty of water for agriculture.
It’s a good thing farmers heeded his advice. Colorado boasts what locals call “fourteeners,” the 14-thousand-foot-high (and higher) peaks. Fortunately for consumers in the Mountain region, our farmers don’t rely on the Rockies only for their recreational value.
All over the mountainous west, we keep an eye on the snowpack just as Jim Bridger suggested, always gauging how much water will be available for our livestock and the grasslands they thrive on.
Although, we can’t say it hurts to work with a view of the sun peeking over the Rockies!
