    Yellow trout lily, Michigan woodlands…


    “Rocky Mountain National Park in northern Colorado spans the Continental Divide and encompasses protected mountains, forests and alpine tundra. It’s known for the Trail Ridge Road and the Old Fall River Road, drives that pass aspen trees and rivers. The Keyhole Route, a climb crossing vertical rock faces, leads up Longs Peak, the park’s tallest mountain. A trail surrounding Bear Lake offers views of the peaks.” ― Google

      Been there in ’66. Saw both Yellowstone an Glacier. To my teenager eyes, Yellowstone was more picturesque and Glacier was a rugged beauty! Both were absolutely AWESOME!

        As an afterthought, I recall Quake Lake had tree trunks growing out of the lake. Wonder what that same memory would look like today! I didn’t have a camera back then! The Caldera would almost assuredly be different today.

        Although I’ve driven through Wyoming, I’ve not been to Montana. There was the possibility of going there in 2020. Alas, the Wuhan squelched that. So close yet so far.

        This scene must be absolutely spectacular in person…
        Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park, established in 1872…

          Lived in northern Utah and my fave places are between Bear Lake and Red Lodge, Montana. But, Glacier Park is also wonderful.

        I was just reading a short bio of Gary Cooper and found this: “During the summers of 1922 and 1923, Cooper worked at Yellowstone National Park as a tour guide driving the yellow open-top buses.”

        He was born in Montana to a well-off family which later bought a large bit of ranch acreage where he learned to ride horses, hunt, fish…all the things which made his entrance into Western films easier.

      I have the happy memory of having been to Bear Lake and seen that view Lucille. I have a picture of the lake as my screensaver on the iPad, and a picture of the peaks framed and hanging in my bedroom.

        Bear Lake is such a beautiful place…two photos of pretty much the same spot…the second image being a tad more like what I would take and the other from the Fine Art America website by a professional named Ken Brodeur….

    Mornin’ Lucille, and everyone who shows up later. 🙂 It is very grey and overcast here. A little cool even though it is 74* and VERY humid. I think it is supposed to rain here today. I sure hope so. We really need it. I believe some of you are going to get snow. My DIL said they are. I don’t think it will snow here. 😀

    Watch out boys and girls. Crazy Ted is on the loose in DC. No mask. Caution to the wind. Should probably be enough of a reason for Jack to kick him off the Tweeter, and Marky-Mark to shut down his FB page.

    I am watching Quigley Down Under. I know I saw it years ago, but I don’t remember a thing about it except for Tom Selleck. Him I remember. Yum. This is a really good movie, and I am paying attention to his acting. I don’t think he has ever gotten as much credit as an actor as he deserves. And, he is a lot of man. 😯
