I'M Back Again...and more vacation sharing on Animal Wednesday

If you wondered why you haven't seen me in Blogland (here or on your blogs) it's because we are just back from ANOTHER five days away over the July 4th holiday long weekend. But now we are back and I am trying to catch up with things like laundry and posting on this blog. Oh, and I do have to go to work today too...for a change of scene! Meet one of the moose we met in Wyoming above... Below: That's me at a roaring creek in Wy by the Tetons...
and this little Moose was surprised to see me I think as he stood spread legged ready to run...
In Yellowstone we saw lots and lots of herds of buffalo...grazing in fields...
and some on the sides of the road even...
Here we are enjoying each others company and looking at more wildlife and beautiful scenery.
like this view of Mt Moran reflected in the water....
Pretty, huh?
Or this upper falls in Yellowstone at Artist's Point...
I've added some more pages from my art journal I drew in the car and painted later in our motel rooms (and sometimes in the car using a water brush) on my lap. You can hopefully enlarge them to read if you like by clicking on the pictures) I think these are not in order either.
These photos are a little out of order as these were taken in an art gallery in Jackson Hole, Wy.
DH enjoying a display in a store of trilobites like the ones we hunted for a day or so before in Utah.
I have way more to share as we were gone 14 days on this trip.
So stay tuned.
and in the meantime
Happy Animal Wednesday.
Now I need to go get ready for work!
Life beckons!
