White Rock Springs - Back In The Saddle Again

Loaded up the horses and took a little adventure out
to the west deserts of Utah.
We were in hope of coming across the

But just like any hunt you take the chance of not seeing anything. Well I can't not say we did not see anything thing there was beautiful landscape, rock formations and you can always find a gnarly tree or sagebrush. It was really a another great day to be out, a little on the windy side. So when I said " lets get to the top of that ridge to see what's on the other side" Dennis warned me it would be extremely windy but my curiosity got the better of me so up we went. The gusts were so strong that it was forcing cold air through my nostrils and out my mouth it was a very weird feeling. I would imagine someone who parachutes would experience it. So instead of back tracking we opted for the quickest way down which was a more on the steep side traversing back and forth till we reached the bottom. Though not successful in finding the horses this time I am hoping for better luck next time and if not just sit back and enjoy the ride.

We did find some signs of spring when we came up on some new calves they sat there patiently letting me take their picture.

Then *SHE* showed up. Always remember the rules about taking pictures of children if under the age of 18 get permission first! You can see by the look on her face she was not happy with me.

Topaz Black&White Effects

I have been trying out the Topaz Black&White Effects software, you can try it out for thirty days and decide if you want to buy it so I thought I would give a whirl. I love black an white but I still love color so I have been going back through some of my photos trying this product out. You can let back in a little color or or not you have the choice. That is the dilemma to many choices.... it just like some women with shoes they have a pair in every color.

On Thursday we were tickled to have some amazing spring weather it had reached at least 63*. I had Hadley and Noah spending the day with me. So we hit two parks and Dairy Queen for lunch. Then this morning I wake up to winter moving back in.

photos of the day

On our last horse back ride there was absolutely nothing to take pictures of can you believe that? So the only shot I got was of Kyle coming down off the mountain, had to at least take one shot of something. The other photos are some old ones that I played with.

We have a niece on leave for now and is back in her home town for a visit. Kari my daughter-in-law and I took a few moments to take some pictures of her before she takes off for her next adventure. Very proud of of her.
