Thoughtless Thursday, Windy Wyoming


I got caught out without my good camera so these are on my iPhone.  This is the historical bridge by Fort Laramie, the fort itself.  We're actually a little piece of history.  Fort Laramie was a stop on the Pony Express and also had a couple of Indian (Native American) Treaties signed here.  You can still go visit and tour the old fort.




Chris LeDoux was right, we have lots of blue sky.  This photo was NOT edited in any way; that's how blue the sky was.




Can you see the last of the gold leaves?  It was breezy so I figured I'd better take whatever pictures I could right then because by the end of the day, the leaves would be all gone!





Another view of the leaves and the blue, blue sky.




And the gold fields.  A little irrigation pond on the edge of the fort.  The sun made this sky look less blue, but still very pretty.




And Sera's windblown look, to demonstrate how breezy it was.  In other parts of the country, this would be considered windy, but here in Wyoming, this is just a breeze.  Windy is 50 miles per hour!




This is the Thoughtless Thursday blog hop with Ruckus the EskieLove is being owned by a Husky, and Barking From the Bayou.

  1. That is so neat! We actually have an inside joke about it being breezy. My MIL used to say that "we don't get windstorms here" (Northern Cali, Sierra Nevada Mountains) the same day she said that, we got a huge storm with 70mph winds and several trees went down. So we've made fun of her ever since and we always says "Breeze Storms" because there's no such thing as a wind storm. LOL!

  2. I have always wanted to visit Wyoming. The photos are just beautiful. Until I do, it is nice to live vicariously through you. ☺

    1. You'll have to see it someday. The great wide open has it's own charm. I'd love to see your neck of the woods. Sounds like it stays warm, which I love, and has a lot of history, which I also love.
