wyoming … long days and fire haze
My first week in Wyoming … busy, but I managed to get a few good shots despite the long days and fire haze. What an amazingly beautiful place. When I descended into the valley for the first time under the full moon, I swear I could feel/sense the presence of wolves in everything around me. Bison, pronghorns, elk, grizzly bears, black bears – drastic prominent mountain vistas … and of course pumas … make it seem like this place was plucked from a time 2000 or 8000 years ago. I’m still waiting for a mastodon to stride out onto one of the sage plains.
Note that there is a QUARTER next to this scat … a fairly large and FRESH grizzly scat that we found on one of the dirt roads we were driving on in the Bridger-Teton National Forest!
