Wind River Canyon, part 6

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.
