“Almost Winter” is sure looking like winter!

Cows and sheep heading in

 

 

 

I’m thinking of Wyoming’s four seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Construction. It seems like Winter is in a hurry. Almost Winter, we hardly knew ye!

Hunting Season

 

     The forest is full
     of folks seeking solitude. . .
     the thrill of the hunt.

Spring Revival!

Antelope on Brown’s Hill

Faithful blog followers may have noticed that posts on “Ranch News” have been fewer and more basic lately. This was largely due to technical difficulties. My faithful laptop went on to that great recycling center in the sky, and I had to learn, sort of, to post on my husband’s wonderful, but unfamiliar, Mac. When I added the new version of Photoshop Elements, I discovered that the newer and fancier upgrade was likewise unfamiliar. Hence the changes you have observed.

But all this is in the past! After much study, I purchased a new laptop. I finally gave up and called the Adobe help desk, where the nice gentleman explained to me how to revert to the familiar “Classic Editor” posting format, which makes it easy to do more editing.

My new tools allow me to resume my former style of posting lots of medium size photos, with, I hope, enlightening and witty text.

Deer dreams

Mule deer watching

 

 

Mule deer in winter
prowling,patient in dry brush,
waiting for green grass.
