So the mysterious whistle pig I mentioned in an earlier post turned out to NOT be a whistle pig (woodchuck) but a Wyoming Ground Squirrel or Spermophilus elegans. Either way very cute so here is another picture!
Isn't she(?) adorable. Oh, and just to prove how in the middle of nowhere I was, this was the nearest town to Mrs. (I'm assuming here) Ground Squirrel.
I have to admit, since a fellow blogger of Q's Corner fame pointed it out, this really is Big Sky Country. I don't know what it is but the sky in that part of the world is enormous... I'm not sure how else to describe it and pictures NEVER do it justice...
This is my husband somewhere on Beartooth Pass looking at a glacial lake as the sky started to clear. The white stuff really is snow. I'm in awe over that! Lol. I'm a Floridian, I still don't get the whole "snow" thing! haha.
