Meanwhile - in another part of the Forest...

This is beautiful Snake River just taken by my son Angus who is visiting Wyoming - lucky boy!
It' s a few miles south of Jackson.  Magical names.  Has anyone been or does anyone know it or even live there?

I have friends who live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming half of each year. They have a beautiful place and I have seen their pictures and heard their stories, but despite numerous invitations, I have never visited them.

Do you remember Evil Knievel? He tried to jump a rocket-powered motorcycle across the Snake River Canyon back in the 70's. Fail.

This really is a big, beautiful country. Has he been to the desert in the southwest? People think the desert is barren and dead but it's not. It's actually quite beautiful.

I have never been there, but I know people who have and they say it is a beautiful area. Tell Angus I love his photo!!

Pat said...

Joey: nice to hear from you.

Naomi: everything looks so vast and spacious. They have had a lovely time travelling - been close to a bear and are now in New York.

Pat said...

scarlet: yes I have to keep adjusting my mental scale.

Granny Annie: my ship mate Dylan
reckons you should accept all reasonable invitations rather than spend long lonely days at home. Go girl!

Exile: yes I remember him but not the failed feat.
Last year Angus started from San Francisco - which they didn't warm to. But then they went in the desert and loved it.
We were in S.F. in the eighties and it wasn't the magical place I had expected.

Judy: thanks - I'll tell him:)

Nea said...

Sorry I've never been there either, but it looks wonderful. I hope they didn't get too close to the bear?

Mage said...

Lovely....

Pat said...

Nea: all I know is Angus got a shot of the retreating bear which he didn't rate good enough to send. I expect to hear bear stories when they return.

Wonderful!!

Pat said...

Mage: I wonder if you have ever seen it?

John: aptly named don't you think?

Beautiful photo for a beautiful place. I have driven through the sate but did not get to visit. I have been fly fishing in Idaho though.
The west has the big skies that I love.

cheers, parsnip

Yes, Angus sure is a lucky chappie!

I'd love to travel through America one day.

Pat said...

parsnip: I like the sound of fly fishing in Idaho.

GG: me too. When would suit you?
