Lynn and Bob visited us in WYOMING!!! (... and we did not take one photo of the four of us)
Boy were we ever so excited to see these two wonderful people. (... so excited that we didn’t take any photos of the four of us)
They booked a week at the Wood’s Landing Resort and made the 12 mile slog up and down the 7% grade pass to visit with us again and again and again and again and... (we didn’t take any photos of the four of us)
Those that know us know that we aren’t really prone to ‘doing things’. It’s not really our thing to do things. But when Lynn and Bob visited we ‘did things’. They’re fun to ‘do things’ with and so we ‘did them’.
One of the things that we did was to take the ever so long road down to the Pike Pole / Pickeroon area. Lynn and Bob like to drive as slow as we do - or so they told us so and they did it and we liked them for that.
Originally, we were due to visit this river front location every few weeks to check on things but another volunteer said he liked going down there so we let him have it. Our supervisor told us there were Bighorn Sheep down that way along the river and when we mentioned this to Lynn and Bob they were up for the adventure.
We formulated the greatest plan ever for a ‘group take off’ photo. Darlene gathered tiny pebbles while the rest of us got poised with our cameras ready for the explosion of color. We counted down and she threw and scattered the pebbles just at the edge of their group.
See the above photo? That’s what it looked like after she threw the pebbles. They were undeterred!
Darlene then opted to wave her hands lightly through them for a more direct approach.
At that point, we decided that lunch at the waters edge with good conversation and Eastern-tailed Blues was a better use of our time.
