Wednesday in Wyoming -- January 2, 2013

This is quintessential winter in Wyoming: snow and the state's official mammal, the bison.  Since I've already told you that Yellowstone is my favorite place on earth, you won't be surprised to know that this picture was taken there. 

As much as I enjoy watching the bison from the safety of my car, I have to admit to being intimidated when I encountered them while cross-country skiing.  There's something about their sheer size, not to mention those sharp horns, that made me put as much distance between them and me as I could.  


  1. Amanda, exquisite photography and your encounters with bison ~ wow--scary. A joyfilled New Year and mega thanks for your gift of giving!

  2. Wow, that is a cool picture of the bison in the snow. I am reading your book, Paper Roses and love it. I started it 2 days ago and I am almost 60% done with it.

  3. Fleur -- I'm glad you enjoyed the picture of the bison. Trust me,those are animals you don't want to see 'up close and personal.'

    I'm delighted that you're enjoying Paper Roses and can't wait to see how you like the ending.
