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.

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.
