Monday walk…walk, ride, or drive?

While in Wyoming, my preferred method of transportation is on the back of a horse. But I do a reasonable amount of walking. Today’s walk was broken up by bits of driving as the various parts some at some distance from the cabin. Mind you, on these roads driving speed isn’t always very different from walking, especially when driving a non-four-wheel drive vehicle!

These butterflies were everywhere this summer. I had a bit of fun with editing in this first shot.

Some distance from our cabin is Park Lake reservoir. One summer during a recent drought, the water level was so low that you could ride or walk well into it. Thankfully this year it was filled with water, a haven for fishermen and people who love water sports. Or you just might want to spend some time admiring the view as my daughters and I did.

Further on along the road is a lovely lake, home to the same water lilies I see each time I visit, but this time they were beautifully in flower.

    Beautiful, Janet! Lovely area to ride and walk in! The images are doing well.

    What a gorgeous scene around the lake. I loved the water lilies. There is a small lake near our home here in Arkansas with the water lilies – that look just like those you pictured here.

    Silently envious- I’ve never ridden in my life. Can you believe it? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the image of the lake, Janet, and the whole world loves a flutterby! Thanks for the link ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I believe it, Jo. Lots of people have never ridden. It’s just something I’ve always loved and have been blessed to be able to do in such a beautiful spot. Kind of ruins me for riding anywhere else.
