Here’s a few of the places we’ve been as of late: Boating on the Snake River by Hagerman (mid April)…
complete with beautiful waterfall.
A windy day at Milner (early April) – just part of a drive while Collin snoozed in the back.
Complete with Oregon Trail ruts (gives me chills!)…
…and little graveyard with weathered wooden tombstones (gives me chills of another sort).
A day out at North Cottonwood Creek in the South Hills (one of a few already) – end of April.
A burst of red.
That burst of red again with a crumbling creekbed behind it looking in poor health.
And complete with a big black widow in a hole in the ground with its metallic blue pray in the bottom left-hand corner. I’ll admit it, my hands trembled a little as I took this picture, and for some reason, I wasn’t aware that they lived right there on the surface – in the top of a hole in the ground. Made me look twice before I took each step. Black widows are quite beautiful looking, though, with their glossy almost plastic looking bodies. One time, we found one living under our couch – that gives me chills too!
