Out West

Out West….in the lovely mountainous state of Wyoming.

I spent the last week in June in the mountains. That is such beautiful country. I could spend an entire summer there and not get bored….not to mention NOT see everything there.

Jackson Hole, WY is a lovely vacation spot for active families in the summer or the winter! 😀

They have horseback riding, river rafting, trail hikes, nature (bison, deer, elk, birds, etc), biking, mountains, rivers, and lakes as big as you please!

All this is found just south of the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park….and from Lamar to Jackson on the highway, there is a scenic loop where you can see wild horses!

Beautiful country!…. It’s as close to nature without all the city life as I have seen in a while…sometimes I wish more of our cities saw the benefit of preserving nature at its most wondrous. Manicured lawns and everything all neat and tidy has its place and creates order and a wonder all its own. Nature however orderly is also chaotic and holds a majesty we tend to overlook due to the currents of life washing away the hours faster than we care to realize.

Wyoming in June of 2015 was a wondrously fantastic adventure that I would encourage anyone to take on at least once. 😀

Whether it’s nature, history, or adventure you seek, Wyoming is awesome! My visit was in summer but I have heard wondrous tales of skiing and the resorts they have available in winter. Summer is a great season for me…but I am interested in a Wyoming Wonderland too… Maybe there is another trip waiting for me in the future…

Love Wyoming Summer

Good-Bye Spring Flowers, Hello Summer Fun!

Today is the day of summer’s official arrival. In Oklahoma, they are expecting 100 degree days for this weekend…so I hear. Me, I don’t mind much. Give me a place to swim and I can deal….I love summer! the heat, the warm rains, the days of fun in the sun and ice cream! all my favorite things as a kid have not yet left me….Thankfully! 😀

Rt 66 IconThe Blue Whale was a swimming hole from days gone by that is now an icon along Rt 66 in Catoosa, OK.

Blue Hole is located in Salina, Oklahoma…I  have yet to visit here but I hear a lot of good things about it. That makes me curious…

so…How do you cope with summer? Do have a favorite “swimming hole”??
