Our children came to visit us and their grandma this summer. When our youngest came, we went back to Upper Nowood Road (south of Ten Sleep) and ate a picnic supper next to the creek that runs through the canyon about nine miles south of Big Trails.
When my children were younger, all I did was portrait photography (as far as this hobby goes). That's why this blog has sometimes been a challenge for me.
Here is a shot I took of our Sunshine, the youngest of the four, who is still in college. Click on it to enlarge.
Sunshine is studying wildlife management, and the shots which follow are some of the things which fascinated her while she was here (they don't see things like this in the upper peninsula of Michigan).
We decided that this evening was a good time for a picnic supper in Wind River Canyon. We went to Boysen Dam, drove over it, and went down toward the railroad crossing to find a picnic table next to the river.
There, my wife found some beautiful flowers.
You can see the dam in the background below.
All of these photographs were taken by my wife. She was especially proud of capturing the red bug below on a milkweed plant.
Just before getting back on the highway to return to Thermop, she saw some more plants covering the hillside. We stopped to enjoy the beauty of this semi-arid environment.
