Wednesday in Wyoming -- September 30, 2015

Have you ever thought about how many shades of green there are?  As I travel across Wyoming, I'm reminded that there are more greens here than in the box of 64 crayons I used to have, and each tells a story.

Wyoming is a semi-arid state, so you won't see the lush velvety-green pastures of the East.  What you will find are shades of green, depending on how much water individual areas receive.  The row of deep green trees in the distance tells travelers there's a small creek nearby.  In the foreground, you see the gray-green of sagebrush, and in between there's the yellow green of grass getting ready to go dormant.
Boring or pretty?  It's all in the eye of the beholder.
