Bryce Part 2

May 18, 2017  •  4 Comments
Another moody day but we were committed and could skip the first few stops we had already done. The climb up to 10,000 feet is amazing and it really does just make one stand in awe and wonder. As my Mom says "God don't make no Junk!" Some HDR in here that I messed with some - hey otherwise it is all just red rocks! Depending on your monitor they ma...

Bryce Part 1

May 16, 2017  •  2 Comments
We did two trips to Bryce so I'll try to put the photos in two posts for each day. Hard to choose what to put in here! The long skinny ones of course are off the editing there. I personally loved watching the weather go through but the others in the group were not as thrilled with the cold and the wind. I could have stood at some of...

The cave wasn't the draw but the waterfall was! Of course. I did however take one picture of the moss in the cave just to prove it is there! On the way back out it started snowing.....

Kodachrome Part 1

May 11, 2017  •  1 Comment
We love State Parks and I will say that the 2 Utah ones we've stayed at definitely told me that they are cared for as well as the Oregon ones I adore! I met my family (we had 3 spots together) and had a lovely time with them. They were game by day 2 to try a short hike so we hooked up Teddy and Epic and they were troopers, hiking up on top of one s...

Highway 12 Scenic Byway

May 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
After my lovely stop north of Salt Lake City, I headed out fairly early on Sunday morning and headed south, then east, then west. Yeah I know but hang in there with me. I will here and now say that the 100 miles from Willard Bay sucked! Even with no horrible traffic it was stressful hauling the trailer through the city, but we made it without too m...

Great Salt Lake Here We Come - Oh the Birds!

May 06, 2017  •  3 Comments
After a 2 night stay in Dillon my friend Robin headed home and the dogs and I headed south to our next stop. I had reservations at a Utah State Park north of Salt Lake City. I am a HUGE fan of staying in State Park campgrounds if I can get the services I need. I'd found this one of course back in December when planning my trip and reserved a spot f...

It Was Great

May 04, 2017  •  3 Comments
Back from a great vacation and have many photos to share. I'll get the posts out as quickly as I can but I came back to work with a new large scale project and am pulling 10 hour days and by the time I'm done, looking at the computer is the LAST thing I want to do. Still I want to share my adventures with friends, family and the pups so here we go.

That Time of Year

April 05, 2017  •  4 Comments
Since I've been joyfully watching many snow geese and swans fly over my home and watching them down on Lake Helena, I felt it was a good time to share again some photos from previous years at Freezeout. I will say I think I have seen more around the Helena Valley this year than in previous and it makes me very happy. We are happily getting ready f...

Eagle Patience and Rowdy Ravens

March 26, 2017  •  4 Comments
We were kind of hoping the eagle would take flight to get over to the carcass when the coyote left. Nope, she ran her little legs off and high-tailed it over that way. Now these two spent a good half an hour flying around arguing about everything. It was rather comical actually so I had to try to capture them.
