Looking down on this small town nestled between the hills around Mammoth Hot Springs looked so serene.  I loved the way the clouds hung in the sky and the sun illuminated the hills on the left.

When my husband and I travel, we like to drive so that we can see what is between here and there.  This was one of those ‘between’ places. We were on our way to Yellowstone and had to drive thru northern Wyoming which brought us thru the Bighorn National Forest.  If there is running water, I am sure to stop – this area was no exception.

It’s been too long since my last post. My part time passion has had to take a back seat for the past few months. I had set myself a schedule to post, along with other self assignments, but have only been able to accomplish a fraction of that.

Golden and red leaves against a blue sky, mix it up (almost literally) with a little white birch bark and this is the result. I know it’s not quite autumn yet, (but we are getting close) fall but couldn’t resist playing with the vivid colors.
