Sunday, July 13
I’m sitting at the table by the back window of the Best Little Trailer, checking this blog. The curtain is pushed back to reveal another beautiful morning at our camp in Ashley National Forest in northern Utah.
My attention is diverted from the laptop by movement out the window. Shadows flutter around the long shadow-line of the antenna pole.
I step outside to investigate, camera in hand.
The young’uns compete in the air for the privilege to perch next to Mama on the antenna.
Earlier, at daybreak, deer graze around our camp.
I count seven altogether and each one has antlers like these two.
(Due to very little available light, the photo has a blue cast. I had to monkey around with the pic in editing in order to present it here. How is it that deer know precisely how to pose for a good photo?)
After a day of sightseeing, I’m happy to stay at camp with Bridget and Spike.
I sit in the camp chair under the pine tree perusing my Wyoming atlas while the crew lies dozing in the grass. A canine visitor appears! He startles Spike and Bridget out of their slumber and they commence to bark.
The pup does his best to engage Bridget and Spike in play. He runs wide circles around the field of flowers, bounding over the tall grass, and coming in for drive-by invitations to join him in the fun.
Bridget and Spike look at this wild display of youthful energy with disdain.
I attempt to read the pup’s tag, but he’s too excited and playful. Eventually he gives up on the stodgy crew and returns to his owners who are parked at the neighboring campsite on the other side of a stand of aspens and pines. They leave shortly thereafter.
I’m in the mood for more photography!
Hmm . . . What shall I shoot? A white butterfly performs loops over the wildflowers in front of me and provides the answer. The chase is on!
TERROR visits the peaceful camp of RVSue and her canine crew!
