  Fall/Winter 2017

Our first eight-inch snow storm of the season came early. With all the tree boughs heavily laden, it looked like a winter wonderland at the house. (Like usual, I wasn’t quite ready for winter because I was still getting used to fall!)

My trip to the east coast in October yielded one especially fun encounter -
a young loon with his crab dinner!

  Summer 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.
