this is the view from our "porch of sorts". It was a big ole spool and a couple chairs on the creek bank. It was where we sip a glass of wine at the end of the day. Or just hang out with coffee and a good book... the sound of the water was so soothing.
Oh yes... another favorite. It was a glorious sunny day... I was on my way home from a walk to a friend's place. I had my camera, and was just having so much fun "pointing and shooting". I spied a moose, and decided to try to catch a snap shot. This was a "cheapo" camera... and the moose was trying very hard to escape my lens... he actually "almost" did. I decided to have a print made for the owner of the cabin (who I had never met). I asked around to find out who they were. One day I spied a truck there in the early spring... so I stopped, knocked, and presented this stranger with my gift. A few days later, I popped into the local Post Office/ convenient store / fly shop... and there was a note inviting me over for a beer creek-side. I went... and The Davis' and I have been GREAT friends for going on 10 years. it is funny how a random act of kindness can turn out so well. I was into RAOK before it was a catch phrase... just because it is just "good" to try to do nice things for others.
This is from the same day I was trying to shoot the moose (NO! Not like Sarah Palin shoots them!!! LOL!) A lens flare can sometimes be such a happy accident. Look up Cooke City on the Internet sometime, just to see a little about the place. There are some "interesting" characters there. So the next photo reminds me of the "Beam Me Up Scotty" thing. We used to joke that alot of folks there (myself EXcluded) probable landed there on that Tractor beam. And... it is a stunning photo.... That was the view from the house I lived in that winter. I do love that little cafe so.
Same place - different season - note the buffalo by the pay phone.
A moose North of town
and a buffalo in the drive way.... Never a dull moment.
This next photo is of two "favorite" peaks. They are called Pilot and Index - and they are amazing. I used to love to come "home" from town - these peaks would lead me in. Such a special memory.
And there you have it! This is why I am so glad I sorted things out... Now I can create some fun things and feel good about my life so far....
Have a great day!
