Speed goats

Pronghorn antelope

If I was quicker on the draw (drawing my camera out of my backpack, that is), I’d have caught double this number of pronghorns on the far ridge across Spring Creek in Spring Creek Basin. It’s not common … but not necessarily UNcommon … to see a group this size. But seeing the actual number WAS uncommon … and uncommonly awesome. 🙂

“Speed goats” is a nickname for pronghorns in Wyoming. It’s a cool random tidbit that has always stuck with me. They’re ubiquitous in Wyoming. Not so much here.

Anywhere, they’re just cool!

Juniper

Juniper steps up from the bottom of an arroyo where she and her band drank from a seep.

Where it’s dry, it’s terribly dry. Praying for Californians …

One of Kwana’s brilliant baby blues is illuminated in the last light of an autumn evening in Spring Creek Basin.

Storm

We wish he was chasing storms, but alas, though it got cloudy and snowed in places like Telluride, on the east end of San Miguel County, the sky over Disappointment Valley and Spring Creek Basin remained stubbornly moisture-free.

Puzzle

Every post – every mustang – could have the title “Pretty”!

Pretty Puzzle is just another one of our very gorgeous Spring Creek Basin mustangs. 🙂
