Big Horn Reservoir at sunset



In July we will be returning to a family camp spot in northern Wyoming.  It's a tradition that started back with my mother and father-in-law and their kids.  Although they are gone now, the kids and grandkids are maintaining the tradition.  We haul up campers and four wheelers and spend two weeks in some of the most beautiful country in the world.  My husband would always look at other mountain ranges and say, "Those are nice, but they aren't the Big Horns."  My response was usually something like, "OK, yeah, right."  Then I saw the Big Horns and spent time hiking, fishing and exploring them and I must admit, this is a special place.

There are big granite peaks, fields of wildflowers, beautiful running creeks with lots of fish and moose.  I'll be posting  pictures after our trip in July, but after I found this shot from a trip two years ago, well, I just had to share it with the SkyWatchFriday bunch.

That is really neat. I can almost sense the movement of the water and the clouds.

We passed through and camped in the Big Horns a few times on our treks back and forth across the States. It is a beautiful range.
