More Animal Life on the Road and Fossil hunting in Wyoming
I drew this portrait of DH while he drove and then I painted it also while we were driving. A couple we met in Kemmerer, Wyoming! They are there each time we come through. As always we saw lots and lots of buffalo... I spotted this black bear and DH got to see a grizzly up close, but I stayed in the car for that photo shoot! And then we went fossil hunting. Here I am chipping away at a slab of limestone looking for fish fossils. We both found some, but DH stayed the four hour mile and found the most. He is very proud as you can see. The fossils are over 50 million years old!!! We came home with a box full! It's July 4th. We should be at Cris' in Oregon, and then at our old time friend Sam's a few miles from there to celebrate the fourth of July as is our tradition of many many years. Our second year without our dear friend Jim since his passing. But we'll have fun nonetheless, and this brings the vacation to an end. Tomorrow we'll be back home. I'm sure I'll have more photos to post as the weeks go on. Thanks for staying so interested. Hugs to all.
