Wyoming is Beautiful!

I consider myself lucky and blessed to live in Wyoming. Having had the opportunity to travel the southern and western parts of the state quite a bit recently, the beauty of Wyoming has been amazing, thanks in no small part to the amount of precipitation we have received over the last winter. Here are a few photos that will hopefully encourage you to get out and enjoy what this great state has to offer.
