Spring in Laramie

Greetings all,

Wyoming mystery writer C. J. Box once observed, “There was no spring in the Rockies … There was winter, summer, fall and March-through-June, which was made up of various highlights of the other three.” How true! Thus far March through May has been a steady continuation of harsh winter conditions (with plenty of road closures) sprinkled with a bit of sunshine: day after day after day shoveling heavy wet snow and then a few days enjoying some warm weather. But July is fast approaching and next month Susan and I return to the Serengeti in Tanzania. Conditions could always be worse — empathize a lot with robins this time of year — and the snow and sunshine provide excellent settings for fun photos. Below are a few examples:
