Big Sky Country


Wide open spaces.  You can see for miles and miles and sometimes even to the ends of the earth.  Big sky country.  Enough piney air to breathe and enough land to get away from it all.  The wild west always lives up to your expectations.  Above is a little hike we took outside Denver, Colorado, on the second day we arrived.  We did not see much wildlife, but with such open land, the animals know how to hide when hunting season is near.  (It is getting harder to take a photo without a house in it!)

  4. Looks like a fun meadow to hike around in. Of course from down in the meadow you always look up and say, wow, that looks like a fun foothill to climb. When do you get up into the really tall mountains?

  9. Your final comment recalls to mind a family break we had recently in a hired "cottage" in a very rural location. We took photographs, convinced that there were no houses in sight. They appeared soon enough when we examined the enlargements. Excellent post.
