Howdy! (FYI, that's how you greet someone in Wyoming.)
Let me backtrack for just a minute...last Christmas I received a beautiful travel journal from our daughter Summer & her husband, Grant. Knowing I was already registered for the Literature and Landscape Retreat at the Vee Bar Ranch in Wyoming, I saved the journal specifically for my trip west.
Right after returning home from Wyoming, however, I had a chain reaction of events that kept me from having access to my computer, subsequently delaying any posts or making a fun photoshow, like Page, Jenny and Alice did. And now, since a whole month has passed, I thought the best way to share the experience is to simply make a list of some of the highlights. (My new journal even had a space to record the highlights!)
Day 1 - listening to the rushing of the Little Laramie Creek & the birds singing, watching the sun going down--all from the Adirondack chair on my front porch, with a glass of wine in hand.
Day 3 - riding bareback on Jello with Tommy telling stories; the beauty of the Little Laramie River Valley in every direction
Day 4 - a few, brief moments where I felt like I belonged in the saddle with Lollipop!
Day 5 - writing the poem, Little Laramie
Day 6 - view from the camp up on Centennial Ridge at the neighboring Deerwood Ranch, about 9,700 feet elevation
