The photo prompt this week is edge. There aren’t a lot of edges around here, everything is all trees, and plants. So I went with a different interpretation.
Nature on the Edge.
The winters here are harsh, and long. The animals must be ready for these conditions by getting fat now, or storing food for the winter. The moose are also getting ready for the rut. Of all the 4 legged mammals around here, they are the last to mate in the fall. I watched this bull the other night as he pawed the ground, making an indentation.
He then pee’d in the spot he had made and laid down in it for a while. That gives him that special, manly scent all the girl moose love.
It’s the See beautiful blog hop today, and what’s better, than beautiful wildflowers.
We hopped over the mountain and into Jackson on Tuesday. Our first art show starts today in Teton Village. We came a few days early because it’s always so nice to stay here, and I love the walking path that is so close. Wednesday morning the dogs and I set off down the path, and the wild flowers were just beautiful. There is always such a nice variety here. Of course, I didn’t have my real camera with me, but thankfully my cell phone takes great photos in a pinch.
Tuesday we left the dogs home and went for an afternoon drive through Teton park. It’s a nice loop with several great turnouts, and you never know what you’re going to see. We had dinner at Signal Mountain lodge, and by then the sun was getting low on the mountains. When you are in the park, on the inner road, the Tetons are incredibly close. It’s such a different perspective than the far away view.
This is the top of the Grand with some little wispy clouds hanging on. We also had the cold snap here, and the clouds were finally going away by the evening.
