A Week in Yellowstone

We had a great time in Yellowstone, there are always beautiful views.  This is Lamar Valley, you can sometimes see wolves and Grizzly bears here.

We saw lots of Big Horn Sheep, these are the females.  I saw males too but never got a picture of them.

This is something I have never seen in the 30 years I have been going to Yellowstone. Ranger/cowboys herding buffalo across the road.  That was quite cool to see.

Here I am on Dunraven Pass.  They had just opened the road.  As you can see the snow banks are a little high.

This is a cinnamon black bear.

This is Rosie the black bear with her three cubs.

I got around to doing a little art one night. Playing with paint and stencils and a bag of scraps led to this collage.

Its funny that I didn't realize there was that white line going down her face. Old book pages are always fun to draw on.

Back To Reality

Since getting back home its been a whirlwind of activity. We sold our trailer and bought a new one.  I've been tying up all the loose ends for my trip out of the country. I leave for Ireland on Tuesday.  I am taking along my iPad with the idea of blogging a little while I am there. I am not sure how long I will keep that up. If I think it is taking up too much time, I 'll postpone it until I get back home.  So I will guarantee at least one blog post from the road. I may end up being more active on FB or Instagram so you might want to follow me there. There are links to do this in my sidebar.

For Sunday Sketches I drew some flowers in a small notebook I had in my purse.

The first page was just some random flowers.

Then I decided on a bigger flower and it became a zentangle. Sketching is always great fun. Check out what others are doing here
