One Year Ago Today. 🌑
Can't quite believe a year has flown past already!
The family and I travelled all the way from Australia. We had a 3-week holiday travelling around the US and part of Canada then flew to Denver. We picked up an RV and drove it up to Casper, Wyoming where we stayed at the Banner Ranch Company.
We were extremely pleased to be greeted by clear weather on the morning of the eclipse. An amazing spectacle which will remain in our collective memory forever!
Taking a break from pigs! Dinner with my @shecreatesunion
ladies always makes me feel ambitious so I drew the buffalo that has been on my mind afterwards. Headed west and home to #greybullwyoming
soon and hope to put a cowgirl on this guy for the perfect souvenir for my hometown.
We’re reminiscing this week. One year ago, the world came to Casper for the 2017 Great American Solar Eclipse. Were you in Casper a year ago? What was your favorite part? #VisitCasper #EclipseCasper #throwback
Founds these two big guys chowing down on willows before they turn yellow which won’t be long. Fall comes early at 9,000 feet.
Sometimes you just gotta send it 🤙
"Yes, that's a bird on my back"
How is August already coming to a close? This summer flew by, restless and travel-worn... When folks ask me the inevitable “How is your summer going?” question, my response has become, “Well, it has been really fun, but it definitely has not been relaxing.” But I guess I prefer it that way. I’d rather cram it all in and soak up every moment and do absolutely everything. I don’t need it to slow down anytime soon. I guess all the craziness just makes me feel content 🙂 .

Wild Geese by Mary Oilver
"You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things."

Over the course of the last 3 days and 1,600+ miles, I travelled through many landscapes from the high alpine to arid desert. I passed through cities and towns with varied populations and travelled areas with no names and populations in the single digits.
It’s easy to lose sight of the simple things that make our existence possible. We forget that our groceries wouldn’t be possible without the farmers producing crops and the farmers producing crops that feed the livestock that in turn makes it to our tables.
Cruising through these remote areas renewed my appreciation for those hard working individuals that make our lives a little easier by taking on the job of feeding a nation.

What was your happiest travel memory?
This is my favorite story behind this photo. It was during a cloudy slightly drizzle afternoon at @yellowstonenps.
I was slowly walking my way up to the viewing point of the Grand Prismatic Spring. While I was almost to the top, I saw a ray of sunlight peeking through the cloud; then I heard someone at the top yelling "RAINBOW!" Instantly I burst up my way to the top and there it was - a double rainbow! Everyone had a camera out trying to capture this miracle moment, of course so was I. But after taking this photo, I realized I don't want to see this view through a lens. I want to see it with my own eyes. So I stood there watching the rainbows disappear. That was the ending to a perfect day. 🌈#nationalphotographyday #perfectday #doublerainbow #visitwyoming #wyoming #grandprismaticspring
