Why the sage blossom? I find it totally inspiring that landscape can appear so harsh, yet for a brief period the sage brush turns blazing yellow/gold. These colors beacon one to take another look, and see what can be if you take the time to notice the little things.
Isnt that what photography is all about? Stopping to capture the small moments that could be overlooked, or even forgotten in 5 years. Imagine having an image that can bring back the smiles, allow you to hear the laughter each time you look at it.
Camping in Wyoming's Big Horn Mountains
We recently spend a long weekend camping in Wyoming's Big Horn Mountains. We chose to not use a campside and did primitive camping, our first time doing so with our son. He is luckily an adventurous toddler! We enjoyed smores by the fire under a huge star full of skies, fishing along the creeks, and doing some hiking for amazing mountain vistas.
Even though we were hear in July it did get down to low 40s at night, so make sure you always pack some warm layers for the nights and early mornings, and remove layers as the day warms up.
Exploring Wyoming Lakes
We enjoying our time in Wyoming. Casper is located pretty close to two lakes Pathfinder and Alcova. Both offer boating, swimming, and fishing opportunities. We love getting to spend time outside as a family and try our hand at catching some big fish.
Other days we find a quiet beach area (which we occasionally share with some antelope) and spend the days playing soccer and swimming. It is great being able to share something so peaceful with our son, so close to town.
