The annual turning of color of the Western Larch needles before they are shed. Their brilliant yellow color can be so bright, lighting up even the darkest of forests.
Afternoon chillin’. I believe this little cutie is a Sagebrush sparrow 🐦
This post is dedicated to my husband whose birthday is today. We are very fortunate as a family to know him as a husband, father, stepfather, son, brother, in-law, uncle, cousin, and of course, friend. Happy Birthday, Steve. You are a gift to our family 🎂.
This morning’s glowing pink-on-everything sunrise. Too pretty to not share. Have a great day everyone 💖
Life is never going to be perfect, but I’m thankful for those perfect moments.

Amazing to watch these bald eagles catching fish right out of the river, especially as we’re sitting along the river bank in the premier seating section. Such magnificent creatures.

Sweet abandon 🍂🏠🍁.

The Pronghorn Antelope. Fun fact: The Pronghorn Antelope shed their horn shells every year and grow new ones. The horns of the Pronghorn, however, help make it unique: they are a cross between horns and antlers, with qualities of both. True antlers are made of bone and shed each year; true horns are made of compressed keratin that grows from a bony core and are never shed.
