Long Time, No Write

Wow, I can’t believe the last post is from May!  Sorry for the unplanned absence.  All I can do is get posting again and hope I keep it up!  If you’re at all interested in what’s going on in other parts of my life, you should go to Media Knits.  I post there semi-regularly. 

So for lack of knowing where exactly to start,  I’m going to travel all the way back to May for some pics taken at and around Shoshone Falls (Snake River, Mule Deer, Unidentified Reptile) – so many photos taken of that place, but it’s never not beautiful. Enjoy!

A Bit of Here & There

 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.

Greening up. 

 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!
