  Summer 2017

August 21, 2017

Like millions of other Americans in August, I looked forward to the total solar eclipse which swept across the country. My husband and I drove to Lovell, Wyoming and the morning of the event drove south. There in the path of totality we found a secluded hill above 7400 feet with a 360-degree view - no people, no houses, no vehicles and only the local deer for company.

The following day I had a long adventure with the Pryor Mountain wild horses near (and within) the Bighorn Canyon National Recreational Area. With an expert guide who knew all their names, we hiked and saw approximately 50 different horses. I expected to see somewhat mangy looking animals but these mountain horses looked like they had just come from an expert groomer. Descended from Spanish Colonial horses which arrived in the 1500s, the Pryor Mountain wild horses have roamed these mountains for more than 200 years.

  Winter/Spring 2017

  As I am writing this, we are on the cusp of Spring. It has been a long winter with snow on the ground at our house since before Thanksgiving. I have been traveling to shows and my road trip to the NatureWorks show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, gave me a chance to try out my new Canon camera body. It performed flawlessly, and any reference photos which aren’t perfect are due solely to operator error!
