From the mountians to the prairies

Yesterday we descended over 4,000 feet along the Shoshone River through some stunning rock formations to the rolling Wyoming grasslands.  It was a beautiful drive and we stopped for a picnic at the most beautiful spot in Wapiti.  Not another soul was there and the dogs had a wonderful time playing in the river. This morning it's our turn to play in the Thermopolis hot springs.  Then we'll head off across the rolling grasslands into Nebraska. 


  1. What a stunning photo! The land just goes on and on.
    I think Mohita may be happier to have descended to the plains.

  2. Wow! I agree. That photo is just beautiful.

  4. Stephanie, you're right, she's just purring along.

    Rudee, this landscape is so different from what we're used to--and very beautiful.

    Steven, thanks for reminding me just how lucky I am to be seeing this beauty with those that I love. The dogs just adored playing in that river.


I really appreciate your comments.
