Our time at the cabin was short, but sweet. It really is one of my favorite places in the world, filled with so many good memories. It was snowing and cold when we got up this morning. It was good to be inside with a big fire and a warm breakfast. I helped my sister-in-law in doing some repair work to the cabin scrapbook my mother started more than 60 years ago. It was fun going through and seeing all those photos of the building of the cabin and several generations of my family and our friends and so many good times. These photos were taken the first time. I brought Ray to the cabin.
After lunch we packed up and headed for Wyoming, passing the Tetons and climbing up the mountains into a pretty wintery snow scene and over the Continental Divide at Tagwotee Pass.
Then down the other side and through the Wind River Indian Reservation. I have always thought of Wyoming as rather dry and desolate, but today's drive was through wonderful landscapes of forests, meadows, mesas, cliffs and mountains, abundant with wildlife. We saw elk and buffaloe and deer and many antelope.
Cattle and horses also roamed the land and at times I saw antelopes in amongst the cattle. Such interesting forms in these mountains at the edges of the Wind River Range.
Tonight we are in Lander, Wyoming. We have a little exploration to do around here tomorrow and then we are headed toward Cheyenne.
