It doesn’t last long

Handsome Hayden is an old hand in front of the camera, and because he’s so nonchalant about the procedure, he’s notoriously hard to photograph.

I say that with great fondness, by the way. 🙂

So I was thrilled when I caught him looking back at me recently. See above.


Then he decided to show me how thrilled he was that *I* was thrilled. Heh.


Yeah, pal, I kept clicking.

“Don’t put that on the blog,” he says.


Too late, says I.

The folks at home love you. 🙂


Shades of shale ‘n grey

Comanche; McKenna Peak, Temple Butte

Comanche, like the rest of us, is waiting for greenup.

Some moisture fell in Disappointment Valley in the form of blowing snow. Mostly, it blew on through. We’re not in the path of the big storm, and we’re glad for the little bit of wetness that we got.

Not sure what Mister Sundance got into, but he has a boo-boo.

He also has the cutest mustache in the wild. 🙂

Still winter somewhere

It’s no longer winter in Spring Creek Basin, but in the far distance (to the south), you can see the source of some of our running water in this little part of the Colorado world.

So here we have one of our favorite little feisty pintos and a reminder of our wonderful winter … and great spring to come!

Swish ‘n flick

Harry Potter fans will get the above reference. And Shadow, well, she has her own wild magic. 🙂

How did young Kwana get so grey so fast? I can’t answer that, but he’s always been handsome. 🙂
