Wednesday in Wyoming - January 26, 2022


upheaved red rocks in snow
This scene caught my eye for several reasons. First was the contrast of the red rocks with the snow. Secondly, the angle of the rocks took me back to high school Earth Science when I learned how forces within the earth cause upheaval. And, thirdly, I was drawn to the sagebrush in the foreground. That quintessentially western shrub has always appealed to me.

I hope you enjoyed this month's celebration of winter in Wyoming. What's next? I haven't decided.

Bedlam - Fort Laramie
Doesn't Old Bedlam, the oldest military building in Wyoming, look peaceful? I'm sure it was anything but peaceful when the army was in residence at Fort Laramie. After all, there's a reason it was called Old Bedlam.

Mammoth Hot Springs Yellowstone
This is one of my favorite winter in Wyoming pictures - Yellowstone's Mammoth Hot Springs.

You can't see them from here, but elk were everywhere and didn't appear bothered by tourists. Still, as with the bison in last week's post, I kept a good distance from them. After all, they're much bigger and can run much faster than I can.

Bison in Yellowstone National Park
No doubt about it. It's winter in Wyoming. 

Although these bison appear peaceful, my husband and I kept as much distance between them and us as we could while we were cross-country skiing in Yellowstone. Those horns, not to mention the sheer size of the animals, are intimidating. That's why telephoto lenses were invented, isn't it?
