Snow in July
A handsome but testy badger from the Historic Quarry Trail at Fossil Lake National Monument in Wyoming, and a peek at the still snowy (!) peaks of the mountains around Laramie. On July 4th, we managed to escape parades, fireworks, and children by driving through stunningly lonesome cattle ranches, a full moon casting its yellow light over the snow. After days of driving in 92 degree weather, we put our hands to the windows and felt cold glass. There was still snow by the side of the road, and fat, black and white magpies bouncing around in it.
