More Than Expected

It is a rare opportunity that we can share a few days off with Michael - so when we do, we try to make the most of it
A few days away - hoping to go camping
It happened to be the fourth of July
We wanted no crowds, to get away and take a breath
Experience a new place
What we found was more than expected
Mid-day on the fourth a beautiful camping spot
No lines of traffic or masses of people
Breath taking scenery that was beyond what we had pictured
Natural high altitude lakes, alpine meadows full of wild flowers and islands of "half" trees, a pair of handsome bull mooses, a whistling marmot letting us know we were in HIS territory, mounds of snow (perfect for July snow ball fights), sharp granite peaks, babbling brooks, and clouds of HUGE skeeters of course
little by little we are discovering the hidden beauty in this wonderful state of Wyoming
