Mountains and Critters…

In typical “Anne fashion”, I took a lot of pictures during our three days in Wyoming.  My favorite farmer told me that I could pick my additional favorite 10 to share with all of you (he figures that you all might not find my “hobby” as interesting as I do…)!

Because I only get 10 pictures to share, I am limiting myself to the topic of Mountains and Critters…If you would like to see my vast array of wildflower pictures let me know 🙂

And reminds me of our precious our Earth is...

And left me with an feeling of reverent awe.

Because fishing is hard work---

Playing with nature  is hard work—

    Love all the pics Anne, but my favorite is the one with Ashley Grace and Matt! Priceless moment!

  2. Carol

    Great pics as usual, Anne. Mostly, I’m jealous of your time in WY, though!

    • Thank you, Carol! I would imagine that the pictures would leave you with the desire to head home for a visit 🙂

      It is good to hear from you!
      Anne

  3. I wouldn’t mind seeing pictures of your wildflowers. I find them beautiful!

    Your pictures are great. It looks like you all had a wonderful time.

    • Hi Leslie,

      I will try to get a post up soon with the flowers 🙂 We did have a wonderful time–it was a good trip!

      It is great to hear from you. Thanks for reading and commenting!

  4. Love them all and would love to see the wildflowers 🙂 Flowers always make for a good blog 🙂 Also hubby found you while checking out the Tysons site… I think it is from your recent trip there… http://www.tysonfoods.com/Media/Video-Gallery/Farm-Check.aspx
    Enjoying the vacation photos and I find your hobby interesting… probably because I enjoy the same things 😉

    • Hi Kim,

      I saw the video a few weeks ago. It is a good one, and was from my trip to Arkansas in May.

      Things are crazy for me this week b/c I have to be in Denver for Cattlemen’s meetings most of the week, but I hope to get a couple of posts up and will work on the wildflower one 🙂

      Take care,
      Anne

      • I figured you knew about it, but hubby wanted to make sure you had seen it 🙂 I figured it was from your trip to Arkansas 🙂 Good luck on your trip to Denver, be safe 🙂

      • We arrived just fine this evening— I brought Megan with me to learn and keep me company 🙂

        It should be a very interesting week of meetings, and I am hoping to learn things. That being said, I am confident that I will be more than ready to get back home at the end of the week!

        Take care,
        Anne

      • Well have fun with Megan and learn a lot 🙂
