Spent the afternoon with the guys and a neighbor looking over his place. I LOVE seeing new country, and it was torture driving through gorgeous country and not stopping every bit to take photos! Today the weather acted stormy with a 20% chance of rain… and you could look down the slope of the Big Horns and see exactly who was getting that 20%!
Light was fleeting, dipping the grass in a golden glow one moment and fading to cool grey the next. The aspens were past their prime, but a few held on desperately to their last yellow leaves.
I couldn’t help myself, I had passed by so many opportunities for photos, that when we returned past this old sheepwagon, I asked if I could stop finally!
I took a couple dozen photos quickly, trying not to take too much time.
The guys kept talking…
I could have spent the afternoon here… and sure enough, three minutes after we left, the sunshine broke through in that soft artistic light that I love so much, and I wonder what I could have done with that glow!
I enjoyed this trip… our neighbor knows an amazing amount of history, and I would have loved to record our conversation, though most of it would have been difficult to hear as side by sides aren’t made for quiet! Thanks for the tour, D.!Find me here!

Such beautiful photographs! And I know what you mean about the way soft light works for taking pictures. I had such an afternoon on the Dookie rail trail here last week. Can I give myself a plug? The photos were actually kinda good – http://newciteaux.blogspot.com.au/2015/10/review-dookie-rail-trail.html

There’s just something rejuvenating about seeing new country! Thanks for the tour. And, by the way, I forgot to say that I like the antelope picture that you have above this month’s stories.
Really glad you got the photos of the old wagon–they are memorable.
I’m envious of your tour. There’s so much history to be learned from your neighbors.
