Wyoming blog 2021
When Candy and I moved to Wyoming in 2014, I started keeping a photo diary of everything we did and saw. This is my current 2021 blog page. For archives of past years, please follow these links:
It’s now been 7 years since we moved to Wyoming. We’ve certainly heard the creaking and cracking noises of a frozen lake. However, we just heard for the first time something known as “singing ice”. At Ocean Lake it had a higher, more musical pitch. Unfortunately, recordings didn’t come out well. At Frye Lake the sound was a low pitched, eerie, almost SciFi sound. Turn up the volume and listen in… (Sorry, I didn’t realize until after I posted this that the sound is terrible on a smartphone. Really needs to be on a computer with good speakers.)
If you’ve follow my blog, you know about Sinks Canyon State Park. Here is “The Sink” in winter.
Interesting frozen splashes
03/05/21: Mars Pleiades conjunction over the Tetons
03/27/21: Took another brief trip over to the Tetons. We saw several moose. This one is a bull moose taking a midday siesta.
Found this group of Bighorn Sheep rams in the Elk Refuge in Jackson.
I’m not proud of this, but I now feel like a Paparazzi. We were driving past the Shane Cabin ruins when THERE HE WAS! I spotted the world famous Dr. Jackson Crawford recording one of his iconic outdoor YouTube videos and just had to snap a photo.
Fresh snow and strong winds make for an beautiful Teton scene.
