Today’s photo: this one is from Jonmikel, who managed to capture this beauty from the comfort of our backyard in Lander, Wyoming, right after a fall squall.
Big skies mean big fields, big spaces, big storms, and big rainbows.
We pulled to the side of the road and jumped out, stepping into the woods to a place we had never been. After only a short jaunt, the trees opened up into this:
With not another human being in sight, we played in the waters and ate cherries on the shore.
The only signs that others had ever been here was an old campsite, abandoned long ago.
After hiking around the lake, we continued on, venturing further into the mountains and up a small hill. The trees soon fell away and revealed the Winds’ hidden secrets: views like this one, only footsteps off of the road. Views that so few people take the time to find.
You never know what you will see when you step off the road in the Wind River Mountains.
