At the end of June I took a three hour trip from my home town to visit the Snowy Range in the Medicine Bow National Forest. All my years in Wyoming and there are so many places that I haven't been! This was one of them and I was so excited to go.
Although it was a bit more snowy than I would have liked, everything about Snowy Range is absolutely breath taking. Actually, there was way too much snow, we didn't get to do all the trails and see all the lakes that we wanted because the roads were still blocked off by huge drifts of snow! In June! I guess I shouldn't be surprised since Snowy Range is at it's lowest, 10,000 ft and in an Alpine climate. A friend and I visited Mirror Lake and walked over many banks of snow to the other side of Lake Marie. They were both just absolutely gorgeous. I have never seen anything like it in Wyoming before. They had tall and grey mountains, clear and calm lakes surrounded by pine trees and white stones. We wanted to see some other lakes and do some trails, but they were blocked. We did climb over some large drifts on a hillside to see a waterfall that we wanted to see badly! It was a fun and beautiful day, even the drive through the forest is wonderful, you can see the whole forest from the road! As soon as it warms up there a little more, I'm headed back for even more landscapes!
Just a heads up, I will be in California for the rest of this month so the Photo of the Month for July is going to be a little late!
Each month I will be posting a Photo of the Month! Also I'll try to work in any requested posts or things I find interesting to post! Enjoy!
