Detour Ahead

Detour Ahead the computer has been giving us fits for sometime , so most likely it will be heading into the shop to get fixed and I will be taking a recess from life for now.
Dennis and I took off up the mountains over the weekend to see what I could capture with my new camera. We rode out to one point and could see some deer way across to the other side of the mountain and an eagle was up soaring above us.
Dennis got out his dying rabbit call and started to play just like the Pied Piper not only did one eagle get interested in the noise a few more started to hover over the top of us it was fun to see how close they were getting to us but not close enough for me to get some really good shots.
One thing that caught my attention was this big boulder with icicles and frozen ice that was covering it. It was the one and only time I got off the horse to take pictures.

My youngest son Kyle has surprised me twice now with some more of his creative talent. This time round he made me little barn and now this fun little windmill that is made out of scrap metal.

This eagle gets to spend the rest of his life behind bars because some careless person used him for target practice.

photos of the day

First real snow storm we have had this winter and the Roan
got a little bit feisty he really put on a show.

The sunsets have been absolutely beautiful
these were taken at my moms house.
I had taken her and her sister Sue out for a ride that day.
The vivid sunset was the perfect ending for our day.

Kacy and I went into the city today and Little Miss Wesley tagged along with us. She did pretty good for a toddler so on the way home she decided to have some of the snacks her mom had packed. The first time I turned around to see what she was up to she had stuck pretzels up her nose, then she followed it up with a yogurt facial. You are what you eat and wear!

Back In The Saddle Again-Antelope Island

Yes we were back out on the island again,
we had company with us this time round.
Kyle and Kari came with us. Kari her with her camera and I with the new camera Dennis had given me for Christmas.
I found out right before Christmas I had broken mine
(what a gut wrenching feeling I had over this.)
To repair it I would have been at least six weeks out of luck!
But Dennis surprised me instead with a new one and a new lens to to boot!
What a guy...love him.
We rode further south , so this was the first time for Kari and I to have seen this rock corral that had been built.
Broke my heart to know what had happened to the wild horses of Antelope Island.
