Beautiful Wyoming blue sky and puffy clouds...

Well, I'm here...just where I want to be!
Here's a shot from the highest part of our property looking down on the barn and the old horse corrals. Directly to the right of the barn is the beginning of the 'bunkhouse'. To the right of that (and off the picture a little bit) will be the house.

Up here on the hill I plan to put together the old hand hewn logs from 2 old cabins and reconstruct an old log cabin.
The logs were generously given to us by our good friend Joan.

I love our view to the east of The Big Horn Mountains.

Part of the bunkhouse foundation and Steve's (our carpenter) horse trailer loaded to the max with the materials for the walls.
He'll be back out soon to start and I can't wait!
We spent a couple of hours yesterday making sure the windows will be exactly where I want them. He chalked off all the interior walls and marked the window placements. Is that ever nice to know the windows will be just for the best views.

A view to the north of the Pryor Mountains in Montana with a little rabbit brush (I think it's called) in the foreground. The dark green band are the trees along the Shoshone River.

Back in the days of the old manual cameras I knew exactly where to set my good old Nikon to have both the foreground and the background focused...I still haven't figured out how on the digital cameras...I know I can but it seems such a pain compared to my old camera.

A view last night to the northwest...the Absaroka Mountains in Montana. A little further to the left is Yellowstone Park.

 A few struggling flowers with no rain for all summer.

More to come...very soon!



Hi Faye,
It looks like a piece of heaven! How wonderful for you! See you later this month!
