Snowmobiling the Big Horn Mountains

Saturday the mountains received a fresh snowfall. Everything was coated white on Sunday - a gorgeous sunny day with a big blue sky as far as the eye could see.

So we drove our snowmobiles up Crazy Woman Canyon into the Big Horns.

We came across this big hill...

...and two friends who were also snowmobiling.

So the guys had a blast on the hill while I took pictures. Yep, I'm a sissy to big hill climbing and really deep snow. I will get stuck.

Here comes Steve...

A perfect end to a perfect day - a Big Horn sunset.

Watching the Elk...

We have been watching Elk pretty much every day since we arrived in Wyoming two weeks ago. Every viewing is so amazing. They are never in the same place for 24 hours. These pictures were taken at sunrise yesterday before a mini snowstorm blew through.

The herd is made up of mostly moms and their kids. The big guys hang out together in some isolated undisclosed area. Well, not really. I just forgot the name of the place they hang out in the winter. It is somewhere up the mountain. But some of the male kids still have their antlers.

Two elk having a nose to nose conversation.

The sunrise made for a nice background!

This lone whitetail deer didn't seem to mind the company.

This was the biggest bull we saw.

Steve took this one with his phone. The elk came across the hill then down to the valley.

What a sight to see while drinking our morning coffee!

ATVing with Tracks, Up and Down Crazy Woman Canyon

Steve put this bad boy together before we drove out west to Wyoming right after Christmas and then worked on it a bit once we arrived. The other day we took it up and down the Crazy Woman Canyon. What fun! The quad is a two up (two seats made for two riders) so I just ride and take pictures!

The canyon is so quiet and peaceful this time of the year. We felt like we had the whole thing to ourselves...

A quick little selfie cuz I can :)

Would this be considered a shadow selfie? My what long legs we have here...long and skinny, I like that...

And just one more selfie...
