There is just not enough years to spend with a special little soul like Roxy.
December 25th, 2004 – October 16th, 2020
I started this blog in January 2011 under the name Roxy the Traveling Dog. And she was quite the little traveler. She went a lot of places, and had a lot of fun. Her favorite thing ever was meeting new people, or seeing old friends. She was quite the people person, or dog. She touched so many people, some who never met her. Because of the blog, she became a little bit of a celebrity and it was always crazy when people would approach us and recognize her.
Bears. Everyone loves the bears. They can be the most challenging to find, and get good photos of, but so nice when you get that chance. It’s definitely right place, right time with them. They move around, people move around, and sometimes our paths cross. There are areas where your chances go up though, areas where bears are known to be.
Then you just have to hope they cooperate.
“I’m not coming out, it’s too peopley out there.”
We were walking on a trail we enjoy, and saw this bear clear out on a limb getting hawthorn berries. This is the time of year when they focus on getting fat, hyperphagia, and the berries are a prime source of food.
One thing I like to photograph in Wyoming is the bison. They are big, scruffy, and given their body size, fast. I’ve always thought they seemed out of proportion. Huge heads and shoulders, small waist and rear ends, and fairly short legs.
