Hello

I am back with some random photos
and happenings from my week.



We have been out and about hiking once again.
Finding beauty on the hiking trail.  I love bringing my camera along
it a great excuse when I want to take a break.
 HEY.. I need to stop and take a picture.





I was happy to finally get a photo of this little guy who has been
hanging out in the tree right behind us.  They are so fast. Most of my photos
are just a big yellow blur.





We made it to Yellowstone National Park.  It was a two hour drive
and well worth it..  I was hoping to see some Moose but all we saw was
lots and lots of Bison.  It was kinda cool to see these great big animals
 roll around like a dog.





This here little Ma and Pa owned BBQ joint serves the best
Tacos I have ever had..  If you ever find yourself in Victor, Idaho
its a must stop.   And yes they put BBQ sauce on there Tacos.





 We went to bed on Wednesday night to the wonderful sound of
rain .  And woke up Thursday morning to a winter wonderland.
My husband made this here snowman..  I stayed inside and sipped on hot
coffee in our nice warm RV..  Till it was time to take a picture. 




So I do hope you had a happy and eventful week.
Take time to notice the small things my friends because one
day you will realize they weren't that small at all.

Hugs~

Love your photo's Linda! If you have a hard time taking a photo of a moving bird, do you have video on your camera? I used to take a video of the Hummingbirds and took the still from the video! This yellow bird was just beautiful! E-mail me your daughter's address so I can mail you something! I so enjoyed the postcard! Have a wonderful time on your way to Oregon!

Don't enjoy snow? hehehehe what a cool snowman, and snow.... well have only seen it once, when I was very young. Gorgeous photographs, the yellow bird is so bright and pretty .. and the Bison I think we call water buffalo, though I could be very wrong (they look the same). Happy traveling!!

unikorna said...

Oh yes the small things do make us happy...if only we have the patience to observe them...I adore your photos and your life.

Amazing wonders in my life said...

aspiritofsimplicity said...

absolutely beautiful pictures!! What a spectacular part of the country you live in. I must admit that the little snowman freaked me out a bit at first. I'm not quite ready for that yet

Julie said...

Hello my lovely Linda, you know how I love seeing your photos, I'm rather envious of your talents! We watched an amazing programme about Yellowstone Park some time ago, for once I can picture where your adventure too place!
Wrap up warm, hugs, Julie.x

Terri Buster said...

I was shocked to hear that Yellowstone had a winter storm watch after just hearing about all the rain in Colorado. We were planning a trip that direction, but I am thinking it is probably better that we changed our plans this time! Your photos are so pretty!

Ros Crawford said...

Wow!! What terrific shots! I love the bird and those big old Bison rolling around and snow!! Oh my ... I can just feel the warmth of your RV whilst you sit watching and sipping your coffee ... Have a beautiful day ... stay warm!

Audrey Pettit said...

OMGosh, SNOW? Wow, cannot believe there was snow already....and enough to make that adorable snowman! Love him, and LOVE all your photos. It is so amazing all the beautiful and majestic sights you get to see. Yellowstone National Park would just be a dream for me! I'm so glad I get to live vicariously through you!

Linda,
Your first picture is my favorite! I love the colors.

Yea that you captured the pretty yellow bird.

Finding good BBQ is always a pleasure. This place looks like it has character.

Glad you had a good trip to Yellowstone, even if it snowed in September.

The bison shot is awesome! So neat to see that side of them. I'm like you with bringing my camera along on the walking trail. There's always something I want to photograph!

All your photos are wonderful and I always enjoy my visits here. It's pure eye candy :)

Tracy said...

Oh man the colors in that leaf are gorgeous. We never saw any moose at Yellowstone, just in the Tetons. Yeehaw for your hubby's snowman. Fun pics my friend. Hugs!

Gail Dixon (LaBelle) said...

I wish I was a stowaway on your travels. Very nice set of images from the autumnal leaf to the snowman. What a range of adventures!

Ida said...

My you are having quite the adventure. The little yellow bird is so pretty.
How fun to see the Bison up close like that. They are certainly huge animals.

Snow...say it ain't so! I am so not ready for that.

Great photos Linda! That little birdie is much more yellow than the one I have a picture of...huh? Love the snowman, and that bison is too funny! Maybe he wanted you to go over there and rub his belly! Lol

Carol Blackburn said...

Whew! I nearly wore my finger out scrolling down to leave a comment, LOL. I would have loved to see that Bison rolling around like that. I bet it's a sight you'll never forget. I would have probably never thought they did that if you hadn't shown the photo. LOL Glad your travels are bringing you all this enjoyment. Enjoy the snow.

Sue Lelli said...

LOVE them all! Each and every one is so unique! Buffalo rolling around like dogs? That's a new one! And so hard to picture snow when I am still wearing shorts in Florida!

Saun said...
