Duke IV is a fourth generation rancher who co-manages Ranchlands with his sister Tess.

During the monsoon season, the afternoon storms roll in from the northwest, windy dark masses that sometimes leave rain in their wake. As they move eastward through the ranch, they seem to draw the light to them. The combination of the troublsome skies to the east and the setting sun to the west sets the stage for the prairie colors to stretch to their full potential. The double rainbows and lingering lighting flashes makes for a decent photo opportunity.
