    The bison is impressive.

  2. giberson9 says:

    These are great! Not my first thought when thinking street life but very appropriate !

  3. Love this take on the theme! I remember Wyoming fondly. Scenes like this are why.

  4. LaLindaArtStudio says:

    What a beautiful photo!

  5. autopict says:

    Great idea for teh WPC theme!

  6. writetowag says:

    Gorgeous photos!!!! Happy weekend!!!!

  7. Y. Prior says:

    this is awesome!!! and you can almost “feel” the dust…..

    • I’m glad you like them so much. It was a bit dusty last summer. Hopefully it won’t be as bad this year, but it’s fun to watch the horses go out even if it’s dusty.

        well when I clicked on it and saw those running horses, I remembered why I love visiting blogs – the VARIETY to be found is an adventure – and also – the horses seem to match your gravatar (and your life) – πŸ™‚

      • The variety is great, isn’t it? Just wish I had more time to visit. It’s very addictive and time-consuming. πŸ™‚ The gravatar photo was taken in the same place as the first photo and we go there every summer. Love it!!

  8. Now a buffalo is not what I was expecting to see in any of these submissions! So GREAT!

    I have always wanted to visit Wyoming. I could not imagine a bison walking down the street. In my area, i have seen coyotes, foxes and the many, many geese and ducks which inhabit all of the lakes. I live in Lake County Illinois, so between the real lakes and the run-off lakes, we have plenty of birds walking around:)

    • This was in Yellowstone National Park, so it wasn’t really a city/town street. You might see other wild animals on Wyoming streets and roads, though. We live in Naperville, IL, so we don’t really see much wildlife other than birds and sometimes other things. That’s just part of what makes Wyoming so much fun!

    What a lot of bull! πŸ™‚ Nice horse shot too..

  11. Emilio Pasquale says:

    This could easily be my favorite photo of the challenge. What a street!

    • What a nice thing to say, Emilio! πŸ™‚ I love these streets, both paved and un.

      Enjoy the weekend.

    • Emilio Pasquale says:

      I meant the horse shot. When we were in Montana last year we did get to see bison, but never this close!

      • The horse shot is one we see every summer and never tire of watching. As for the bison, we’ve never seen as many in Yellowstone as we did last summer. And as you say, so close. They are awesome, in the true sense of the word.

  12. Janet – great shots. I am reminded of a cycling trip where we ran into a cattle drive. The cowboys weren’t sure what would happen so they hefted us up on a truck; glad it wasn’t buffalo…

  13. K.Z. says:

    wow. love your take on the theme! πŸ™‚

  14. Amy says:

    Love street life Wyoming-style! Brilliant, Janet! πŸ™‚

  15. Jo Bryant says:

    I really like Wyoming style a lot

  16. Bob R says:

    Not quite the street life I had in mind, but this definitely works. πŸ™‚

    • Bob, they’re just different streets…or roads…or trails. Thanks so much for visiting, commenting and, I see, following. I hope you don’t make a stranger of yourself on the blog.

  17. ivyon says:

    Thanks for the like, I absolutely love your “street life” Wanna change? πŸ˜‰

  18. Stunning! Love horses – big kudos for this one πŸ™‚

  19. Madhu says:

    Ha Ha, most unexpected πŸ™‚

  20. M-R says:

    The horses are simply gorgeous. But the buffalo, Janet ? – he doesn’t seem to be smiling in a friendly way, to me … :-}

    • Haha. I don’t think he was smiling or frowning. He just WAS. And he was just going wherever he felt like it. To have a whole herd of them around is truly amazing. Then imagine, or try to, what it must have been like when the herds stretched as far as the eye could see. Incredible.

  21. Imelda says:

    What beautiful animals. Your horse shot is terrific! Your street life is special. πŸ™‚

  22. viveka says:

    Janet, brilliant photos … and I really like you angle of streetlife.

  23. de Wets Wild says:

    Wow Janet, that Bison definitely seems to have laid claim to the road!

    Both terrific images!

  24. Reminds some of life in Colorado, where we lived for 12 + years

  25. Very different street life, Janet. I’m sure I also have a pic of that same Bison. πŸ˜€

  26. nesabuj27 says:

    amazing is a lesser word for it,,,,

  27. I adore horses. I don’t know why because I grew up in the city.
    They are very beautiful and look strong. The photo of them racing down the path
    showcases that. The bison has hair just like me when I get out of the shower. XD
    Great !!!!

    • Thanks, Isadora, both for liking the photos and for making me laugh with your hair comment. πŸ™‚ I’ve always loved horses and love to be privileged to ride in the summer during the time we’re in Wyoming. Just being there is a joy, but riding adds even more.

      Enjoy the weekend!

  28. Street life Wyoming style. Love it! Love those horses. I know they’re not free, but still it’s like you’ve photographed freedom. It also reminds me of Charles Bukowski: “The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over the Hills”.
    Lovely post.

    • They’re about as free as horses can get and not be wild. They’re brought into the corral six days a week where they may be ridden. In the late afternoon, they’re taken out to pasture where they spend the night and they get all day Thursday off as well (no unions, though.) πŸ™‚ At the beginning of September, they’re trailed down the mountain and let run free all winter and spring (until about June) on someone’s huge ranch and unless the winter is really bad, they’re really free within that area all the time. It can make for some exciting first rides if you have a young horse.

      • Sounds like they’re having great horse lives and that they can’t complain. I’ve never ridden a horse, so I think it would be wise to stick to an old one πŸ™‚

      • A well-broken, gentle horse is the best. Old ones might be fine but they’re sometimes very slow and can be stubborn. It’s also a good plan to start in the area so the horse knows it can’t run away. πŸ™‚

  29. Oh, this reminds me of Ometepe Island. In fact I had a horse traffic jam as one of my street shots. Love the photos!

    Picture Perfect!

  31. MythRider says:

    Great photos. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Good for you.

  32. mpejovic says:

    Love that bison on the street! A great twist on this photo theme.

  33. brenda says:

    I can hear as well as feel the excitement of rumbling horsepower πŸ™‚

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
