It’s Monday, time for another walk with Jo and other friends, but on this walk, we can easily frame a few choice bits of Wyoming for Amy and the photographers of the Lens Artists group (as well as all the walkers.) Tie your laces and let’s go! But first, take a look out the window. You never know what you’ll see.

Before we leave the porch, take a look at the view. The Big Horns are covered with more snow this year than I’ve ever seen before. It was a stunning display of beauty.

There’s an entire group of six to eight turkeys around this year. This guy’s a bit wary and getting ready to move on out. But too late. He’s been framed!

There’s also beauty to see close at hand.

I’d just about given up on seeing a moose this year. Then we saw five or six bulls out for a bite to eat. Right after this, they were eating lunch during a snowstorm, not a heavy one, but still…it was near the end of June. However, at 7-9,000 feet, who know what the weather will be? Makes it easy to chill out!

    Wonderful photos!

  2. Tina Schell says:

    Well framed Janet! Jealous of your moose sighting!!

  3. Amy says:

    What a fabulous walk, Janet. I love how you frame these images. I have scrolled up and down a few times, hard to pick my favorite, all are beautifully captured. Thank you so much for taking us there. πŸ™‚

    I can’t imagine stumbling upon a moose! Probably just as well, Janet. Thanks hon πŸ₯°

    • You only want to stumble on one at a distance, Jo, that’s for sure. They can run very fast and jump amazingly high. But it’s a joy to see one from a distance. Glad you enjoyed the walk.

      • restlessjo says:

        Jumping moose? Scary thought! Your photos are beautiful. I just saw them on the laptop. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • ledrakenoir says:

        They are so They are so long-legged, so they rarely have to jump. πŸ˜€

      • True, but I’ve seen them jump a chest-high fence from a standstill, so they can if needed. πŸ™‚ It’s impressive.

      • Thanks, Jo. It’s a beautiful place and I’m glad my photos shared that. I’ve seen a moose come right up to a fence that’s chest-high to it and jump over from standing. πŸ™‚ The most amazing things about them running is that they can get through the forest without banging those horns on the trees!

  5. JohnRH says:

    Excellent selections. You live in a great place.

  6. Prior... says:

    This was delightful and gave a spats of nature cheer via blog post –
    seamless flow of photos for a walk and the lens-artist theme
    and the moose was cool – also love the flowers framed like that

  7. ledrakenoir says:

    Fascinating walk, so inspiring. πŸ™‚

  8. Wyoming tourism could use some of your photos. πŸ™‚

  9. Lignum Draco says:

    What a beautiful area you’re in. Everywhere you look is picture perfect and so much to see. I’m jealous.

    • Our vacation cabin is there, Lignum, although I wouldn’t mind being there year-round. However, the water and electric are off in winter, so it’s only habitable if you can go without power, et al, and if the snow isn’t so bad that the road is close. πŸ™‚ I do dearly love it.

  10. anne leueen says:

    Such nice responses to the framing challenge. Lovely views and interesting creatures!

  11. JT Twissel says:

    We’ve been seeing a lot of turkeys this year and I live in a semi-rural area. Clever framing!

  12. de Wets Wild says:

    With so much beauty and so many wonders around hiking in Wyoming should be the state’s official pastime!

  13. Resa says:

    I think you live some some crazy beauty. Well captured, Janet!

  14. Leya says:

    I see how you love this area, Janet. It is so beautiful and soothing for body and soul. Great frames – and that little flower is stunning. My friends used to have them in their garden, I forget their name. Lovely moose there – I always see them from the car on my way home – always afraid they will come up on the road. In my part of Sweden accidents are quite common. they look best in the forest – where You meet them!

    • Moose are definitely better seen off-road at a distance. Even a deer can badly damage a car, so I can only imagine what a moose could do! Because the road on the mountain isn’t paved, you can’t go very fast, so it’s not too likely you’d hit a moose, though. And yes, the area is soothing for body and soul. 😊

    Janet, magical … you have really delivered the magic of nature in this post, with your words and images. The turkey image – priceless … you were quick there.

    • The turkeys were around quite a bit, although sometimes I could just hear them and sometimes they were to quick to get away. Thank goodness for telephoto lenses. πŸ™‚

      • viveka says:

        Janet, I’m too slow for birds … and a turkey should scare me. They can evil things, they can bite. Excellent capture. Well done.
