Wednesday in Wyoming -- February 25, 2015

Here's the jackrabbit I showed you a couple weeks ago once the snow stopped.  As you can see, it returned to the same spot, clearing out a small nest for itself.  I'm always amazed when I see them, because they're so large, and those ears are enormous.

Wednesday in Wyoming -- February 18, 2015

Although I experienced freezing rain when I lived in the East, freezing fog was new to me.  It can be dangerous, since it leaves black ice on the roads, but I find it beautiful when it coats the trees and bushes.

Wednesday in Wyoming -- February 11, 2015

When the snow comes, the jackrabbits need to find shelter.  Did you know that, unlike cottontails, they don't live in burrows underground?  Instead, they make shallow indentations in the ground, typically under trees or shrubs.

Wednesday in Wyoming -- February 4, 2015

It's definitely winter in Wyoming.  This picture was taken on the way from Cheyenne to Lander, site of "Lander Lil," Wyoming's answer to Punxsutawney Phil.  As you can see, there's not a lot of snow, and Mother Nature -- in the form of solar heat -- will soon clear the road.

Wednesday in Wyoming -- January 28, 2015

It's the time of the year when most of us are heating our houses, but you're probably not using a stove like this one.  I found this rather ornate stove in the Homesteader Museum in Powell, Wyoming.  As pretty as it is, it still makes me wonder how effective it was at heating.  Have you ever heated a room with a stove like this?

Wednesday in Wyoming -- January 21, 2015

Does this scene look familiar?  It should, because it's practically the same location as my cover picture.  What you're seeing are the Laramie river, the old guard house and the ruins of the administration building at Fort Laramie National Historic Site.  This picture was taken in January, the cover in early June.  What a difference five months makes!
