WOO HOO!!!! I'm back!

>> Friday, August 15, 2008

I had such an amazingly awesome time out west! Between the farmers' markets and the lakes and the incredible wildlife, my head is spinning. I saw four large states and tons of diverse landscapes... alas, no elk! I did however see wild buffalo and wild horses, antelope, bald eagles, cottontail and jack rabbits, fawns were everywhere because they had a late spring, and even a fox. I don't even know where to start and until I finish developing all the film, here is a sample of what I took digitally. I got tons of great footage too, so I am SUPER excited!

Some bald eagles watched over my first campsite.

There were antelope everywhere in Wyoming.

This little chipmunk followed me around the view from Dead Indian Pass.

Yes this is snow... in August.

Utah vistas.

The red rock is always beautiful.

Wind power on the UT/WY border

Wide open spaces.

My husband tells me they call this a whistle pig. It does whistle, but I'm not sure what it is... yet!

Like I said, this is a sample so keep checking back for days when I am being lazy and am just gonna post random picts! I start classes on Monday so I may be going back to a lot of science talk too, just cause it helps me study! In sad news though, The Wall Arch at Arches National Park fell. *sniff* It's a shame because it's so beautiful. I am glad no one got hurt.

Cool pictures, Mimi! I loved your blog, very cozy :)

Those are indeed lovely pictures.

I've never heard of a "whistle pig!" Looks like a small marmot (?) to me.

Been browsing your blog. What a beautiful place you live in, and what an interesting life you lead!

Hi Mimi! Thanks so much for your kind words about Obi, I really appreciate it. I would love to read 6 random things about you, so I encourage you to do it. Lastly I am so flattered to be on your blog list, YAY!

@ betul- Thanks!

@ the Bean-mom- That's what I thought too, or a ground squirrel?!?!

@ Cheryl- I loved the eagles too. I had seen them lots when I lived out there and was frustrated because I never had my camera!

@ Sealaura- I'm on it!

Hi Mimi - what gorgeous pics! Loved your eagles and all the vistas. That whistle pig sorta looks like a prarie dog - I hope you find out what it is.
Glad you're back and you had a great time.

Dear Mimi,
Wonderful vacation pictures. I am also a wildlife lover! I think you did see a Prairie Dog.. the Eagles are fantastic birds.
Looking forward to more pictures.
The west is always big sky country to me.
