The heat rippled across amber waves of grain, as the auger of the combine swung out.
The grain tank was full, and ready to be dumped into the waiting grain cart.
Wheat harvest had begun.
No one is expecting record setting yields here in Umatilla County after a dry spring, but it's also not turning out to be the worst crop seen in recent years.
The west end of the county started about two weeks ago, and slowly but surely, others to the east have joined in, pulling equipment out into the fields.
Long hours, hot days & patient farmers feeding the world.
There's nothing quite like the cadence of the wind across the wheat......
